WHETHER HOME IS CREEKSIDE, GREATER HUNTSVILLE, TX, OR BEYOND.
People thrive in familiar, positive environments. We heal better with people we know. And happiness helps us feel less pain. Consequently, seniors living together in a community of friends with a continuum of health services nearby is a far more successful arrangement than the alternative, which has seniors and their loved ones flitting about looking for the right health care among strangers. That’s why we offer a range of senior health services, including long-term Skilled Nursing, Memory Support and Rehabilitation services — all at competitive rates. With this array available to both our Catered Living residents and the public, our service territory starts with Huntsville, TX, and radiates out to include Walker County and, well, anyone who needs top-tier care.
INTEGRATED HEALTH CARE, INCALCULABLE BENEFITS.
Consider the immense convenience of a single location. For example:
- You’re a Catered Living resident, suddenly in need of a regular helping hand. Assisted Living services slip into your daily life, morning and evening, providing just the help you need to get back your confident, rarin’-to-go independence. Plus you know, now, there’s very little that’s insurmountable if you have good humor, grace and a smart Assisted Living professional on your team.
- You’ve just had major surgery. Before you get back to your apartment, a 10-day stay in short-term Rehabilitation helps you ramp up into the swing of things — at the same time, keeping you close to your Creekside family. (You know they’ll bring you cookies.)
- You were doing fine in Assisted Living until your chronic osteoarthritis flare-ups became too much for one or even two daily visits; you simply need more care. So we carefully move you to Skilled Nursing, where you’re well in hand and have all the services you need, delivered by the good Creekside people you know and trust. Plus, your friends are close enough for a hand of canasta.
In short, simply because of its design, Creekside can provide better (and often more affordable) care.
This is your invitation to start a quiet conversation that can sharpen your confidence for facing possible future health care needs.
Health Services FAQs
It’s always wise to start with a physician’s exam. After assessments of medical needs and ADLs (activities of daily living) abilities, our professional team is better able to advise you, as well as provide information, answer questions, and help you determine the best initial program and placement for your resident.
Very! Many Assisted Living residents are quite independent but simply need assistance with a daily task or 2 (or more), typically ranging from taking medications to bathing, dressing and/or help with meals, housekeeping, transportation and other everyday activities. A trained, licensed nurse and certified nurse aides are available 24/7 to provide custom-tailored support to help your loved one preserve their active lifestyle.
Dementia is the loss of cognitive ability (such as remembering and reasoning) severe enough to interfere with daily functioning. Dementia isn’t a disease but a symptom of disease, notably Alzheimer’s. When caused by drugs, alcohol, depression, or hormone or vitamin imbalances, dementia may be partially or fully reversible. When caused by disease or by certain injuries, dementia is irreversible. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that affects the parts of the brain controlling memory, language and thought itself. Over age 65, 1 American in 8 has Alzheimer’s.
Our licensed medical professionals include RNs (registered nurses), LPNs (licensed professional nurses), certified nurse aides and certified medication aides. Residents who require intensive therapies to manage well-being and health have custom therapy programs that help preserve their dignity and encourage maximum social interaction.
Short-term Rehabilitation is for those who need greater care while recovering from a hospital stay, and those recovering from illness, injury, surgery or stroke. Your team will include a doctor, nurse, social worker and dietician, plus the therapists who’ll actually provide your care, guide your rehab, and work in partnership with you and your family.
