resident council meetings
each month, the residents hold a
meeting to discuss recommendations to our facility and voice their
concerns. everyone is encouraged to participate. all ideas and
comments are reviewed, therefore, all our residents have a say in the
issues that are of concern to them.
we believe that elders should
have access to animal companionship who have the ability to provide
loving care. the aviary and aquarium in the lobby are gathering spots
for on-lookers. we also house 4 healthy cats and residents enjoy
weekly visits from certified pet therapy dogs.
Eckerd Living Center (ELC) is an 80-bed facility, and one of only a handful of
skilled nursing facilities in North Carolina that actively seeks to be accredited
by the same rating agency that rates hospitals throughout the state,
even though it is purely voluntary. Each time ELC is rated, the
facility excels in the scores given by The Joint Commission on
Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. We are proud of this
distinction that underscores our goal of providing for the physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual needs of every resident in the most
caring way possible.
We realize transitioning to a skilled nursing facility is a matter of great care
and concern to the families of loved ones, so we strive to create an
environment in which you can have trust, faith and assurance that only
the best in care will be given to your family member.
We are physically attached to the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital, so that, emergency and
acute care are just a few steps away. Each resident is assigned a
primary care physician who recommends a plan of medical treatment,
supervises diagnostic, as well as, therapeutic procedures, and
personally prescribes required medications.
We use an
interdisciplinary team approach to ensure that our administrator,
physicians, nurse managers, social workers, dieticians, along with
therapists and special consultants work together to provide the
highest level of care for each member of our Living Center family. We
urge that the residents' family members participate in the active plan
of care to assure that they continue to be an integral part of the
care for their loved ones.
Eckerd Living Center accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and private payment; making all rooms competitively priced. The entire facility is secure, to provide a safe environment for wandering residents. Meals are served fine-dining style with your choice of two entrees, two vegetables, and two starches and a variety of desserts selected from our dessert cart. All diets are ‘liberalized’ to encourage weight maintenance and satisfaction.
