At Sidney Health Center, we like to think of moving into Extended Care is simply a change of address for our residents. The living spaces are designed around a loving community concept with each wing including a common area that includes a dining and living room area for residents. These common areas replicate the great room found in many private residences, allowing families to congregate and visit with their loved ones in a home-like setting.
Through quality nursing care, activities, self-improvement and friendships, Extended Care proves there is more to aging than growing old. Moving into a community at Extended Care does not mean the loss of your individuality. We look upon each person as unique and constantly strive to meet the needs of the body, mind, and spirit.
Our goal is to eliminate the three plagues of the long-term care institution: loneliness, helplessness, and boredom as well as to provide an environment that provides choices, promotes community and encourages participation in activities that are near and dear to our residents. It is our intention to weave together the community philosophy with the practical applications and make it work in the real world of long-term care. In summary we believe:
• Aging is a natural and normal life process.
• Aging should not limit a person’s right to experience life to its fullest.
• People should be able to live their life at their highest level of health, independence, and well-being.
