Points West Living follows the Eden Model of Care. This philosophy supports people to continue to be active, healthy, contributing members of their community.
Every Points West Living site is managed with a hospitality perspective focused on wellness rather than illness. We are communities where individuals are provided with choices and where medical treatment is the servant of genuine human caring, rather than its master.
Points West Living embraces the Eden Philosophy and believes that when an individual’s ability to contribute is recognized, the years to come can be a time of meaningful activities and satisfying personal growth.
Our homes do not look, feel or smell like hospitals – because they’re not. At Points West Living, we focus on wellness rather than illness! Every Points West Living facility is managed from a hospitality perspective, with 24-hour medical services and personal care provided discreetly, in a positive, activity-focused, life-affirming environment.
One of the core values of our philosophy is CHOICE. At Points West Living communities, seniors are encouraged to make daily lifestyle choices based on a wide variety of options. Residents decide when they rest, when they rise, and when their suites are cleaned. At most communities, guests can order meals from a restaurant-style menu or join other residents in the preparation of a home-cooked feast.
Seniors are community decision-makers and organizers at Points West Living residences. The activities they plan and arrange, with or without staff involvement, are at the heart of each residence's social life. Parties, games, outings, crafts, and even exercise classes are planned, organized and presented by our lively fun-loving seniors. Through seniors-run governing bodies, like the Resident’s Council, our management routinely seeks resident input in order to continually improve the quality of Points West Living services.
Like anyone, seniors can become attached to their surroundings. Our aging in place philosophy allows seniors to move through graduated levels of care with the least possible disturbance to cherished relationships and routines.
Well-behaved pets weighing 30 pounds or less are permitted with approval of the manager. Animals may be cared for by the resident, a family member or friend who is responsible for keeping the dwelling unit and the pet clean and sanitary.
Residents are reminded that:
- Pets must be kept on leash whenever outside the resident’s unit
- Owners must clean up after pets immediately
- Pets are not permitted in common areas
- Noisy pets are not acceptable
- Residents must immunize their pets and provide documentation
