At Annandale Village, we recognize and prioritize the fact that on-site health services and skilled nursing care offers peace of mind to the families and loved ones of our residents. As a result, Annandale’s Health Services Department is committed to ensuring the highest level of quality care to meet the changing health and medical needs of individuals served across his or her life span.
Health Services is involved in all program and residential support levels of Annandale Village, offering a skilled, professional team of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Nurse Assistants and Certified Medication Aides who provide a comprehensive array of healthcare services. This team of professionals ensures continuity of care, clarity of information and comfort for each resident by serving as healthcare advocates, providing direct and consultation services, managing routine and acute health needs, monitoring medications, and promoting healthy behaviors and lifestyle choices. The Health Services Team also acts as a liaison between physicians, parents or guardians, and residents, and coordinates physical, occupational and speech therapy if needed.
The Health Services team promotes a resident’s lifelong physical and emotional well being by providing accessible, caring, comprehensive, and cost-effective primary health care.
At Annandale Village, we believe that everyone is capable of reaching new heights and thriving in our community. Our services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) focus on personal choice while recognizing the specialized, and often complex, needs of the individuals we serve.
On a day to day basis, our Social Services team works together to develop appropriate supports for our residents that allow him or her to live, work, and play in the most independent environment possible. Working in partnership with each person served, our highly skilled, professional team of case managers provide compassionate guidance and counseling to help our residents achieve a balanced and integrated life perspective according to their dreams, desires and individual service plans.
Our staff also advocates on behalf of the individuals we serve, as well as their families, to ensure that their voices are heard in selecting services and other community supports. We use a personalized approach and create Individualized Service Plans (ISP) for each person served in collaboration with all members of their circle of support. Each individual receives a formal assessment by a professionally trained coordinator. The assessment is used to develop an ISP, which includes the individual’s lifestyle preferences within a full range of residential, work, social and other community-based services and supports. The plan is assessed and altered on an ongoing basis, according to the individual’s needs and aspirations.
The social services team advocates for each individual and fosters a trusting environment. Case Managers strive to promote self-sufficiency and self-empowerment.
