Frequently Asked Questions

 

How many caregivers are on site at any given time?
Although three of our four care homes are within close proximity with adjoining walkways and gardens, each home is fully supported with two caregivers during the day and one caregiver at night. Each home accommodates a maximum of ten Residents providing always, an intimate family experience.

Are there private accommodations for couples?
Crossroads offers an innovative independent option for couples. Oftentimes one spouse or the other may require additional care; yet, the couple chooses to remain somewhat independent…private. Or perhaps one spouse is the Caregiver for the other but would just feel a little more comfortable knowing help is just next door.

Attached by roof to each of our brand new care homes are what we call our Couples’ Guest Homes. Along with private entries and personal parking spaces, each home is perfectly designed with a spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and new modern appliances, a large separate bedroom and a wheelchair accessible bathroom with an open shower.

 

 

Are there Doctors on premises?
Currently there are three Doctors with regularly scheduled Patient visits at Crossroads. Of course, these Doctors are just a phone call away should additional services be required. Outside transportation is available at a nominal cost for those Residents choosing to remain under the care of their own offsite Doctors.

What types of Activities are offered at Crossroads?
Crossroads offers regularly schedule activities and continually searches for ways to add to our Residents’ life experiences. From arts and crafts, bingo, ice cream socials and tea parties to making bird feeders and memory boxes, there are always events to anticipate. Special planned events with outside entertainment are held in our outdoor Pavilion area and we anxiously anticipate the ground breaking of our raised vegetable garden where Residents can assist in growing our very own organic produce!

 

 

Is there a hospital nearby?
Family members can rest at ease! In the event of an emergency the highly acclaimed Northwest Hospital is only minutes away!

Are private rooms available at Crossroads?
Yes! Crossroads offers both semi private and private rooms. Our rooms are fully furnished; however our Residents have the option of their personal furniture, Crossroads’ furniture, or a combination of the two. We make every attempt to create a true environment of Home.

Are transportation services available?
Other than occasional “fun” outings as described under “Services” offsite transportation is provided by an outside transportation service at an additional nominal cost. Of course, should an emergency arise, we at Crossroads will do everything possible to meet the urgent needs of our Resident.

Are hair and nail services available?
These services are conveniently provided at Crossroads on a regular basis by professional offsite hairdressers and nail technicians at an additional cost to our Residents.

 

Does Crossroads offer specialized memory care including Alzheimer’s?
Yes we do! In fact, when Crossroads began, 23 years ago, we specialized in loss of memory and Alzheimer’s care. Currently within the Crossroads Community, one complete care home is devoted to this level of loving support for our Residents along with their extended families.

What are the meals like at Crossroads?
Just like every other aspect of our vision here at Crossroads, we strive to offer our Residents a sense of Home. “Home” is where you enjoy home cooked meals, not sophisticated complex food one might enjoy in a five star dining experience … but, good, old fashioned, wholesome, healthy, delicious home cooked meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables, home baked bread made right here at Crossroads, well balanced meals perfect for the health of our Family.
