Care and Lifestyle

The happiness of our residents is paramount.  We take time to listen to their story, understand their background, respect the way they choose to live each day and incorporate favorite pastimes and activities into their daily care plan.

Everyone at Vista Living is unique and has lifestyle preferences that they bring with them when they arrive.

Some prefer social stimulation and enjoy a lot of activity and involvement with staff and neighbors, while others prefer to simply quietly observe activity or are content relaxing in the privacy of their own suite.

We assure that our homes are filled with fun, laughter, peace and tranquility and above all, joy.

Identifying & Building on Strengths

This is the core of our philosophy. We identify intellectual , emotional, experiential and physical strengths that go beyond reviewing someone’s health condition.  It is common for family members to know all about strengths, but much too often in assisted living environments, staff does not notice or show interest in anything beyond what is “necessary.”  At Vista Living, we have a different philosophy. Our team is comprised of optimists and natural coaches/mentors. We see and embrace our residents as diverse and intricate people who have amazing backgrounds and exceptional stories.  We ensure that we foster an environment where they can shine. Where they are excited to belong, be unique and look forward to new and fun experiences.

Leonard

Leonard was wheelchair bound and only had the use of this right arm.  He usually would not actively participate in group activities, however, we noticed that he had good motor skills and reflexes with his left arm. We developed games that allowed him to display his talents.  He is a champion beach ball “volleyball” player in our community. Soon after taking part in this new activity, Leonard began talking with staff and other residents much more often and was suddenly all smiles.

Community Enrichment

We believe community is both internal and external.  We take care in helping residents stay connected their outside community as well as their inside community at Vista Living.  Within our homes, we specifically designed the common areas to ensure that “community” is never far away. We eliminated hallways and designated our centralized living room, kitchen, and patio as the hub of group activity.  The community outside of our homes includes friends and family. We encourage visits and the use of technology to help capture special moments for loved ones who are far away.

Our experienced and professional staff provides comprehensive care plans focused on overall well-being, Our care plans are specifically tailored for each resident, assuring that we meet their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual needs with a high focus on their daily happiness. We cater to each resident’s favorite foods, daily preferences, routines, preferred activities, music choices and personalities to offer them the lifestyle of their own design so they can enjoy everyday life at Vista Living.

Our staff is professional, fun and energetic.  They love what they do and it shows. Laughter and hugs are a big part of everyone’s routine.  Our team is dedicated and skilled in all levels of care including Supervisory, Personal and Directed. We are well equipped to properly manage high or low functioning residents in each of our homes.

Our robust activities schedule allows residents to play games (Bingo is a favorite), participate in sing-alongs, make crafts, host family and friends at events (usually centered around the love of food), enjoy meandering walks on our quaint outdoor paths,  watch movies or favorite shows together, attend special guest performances of music, story-telling and educational series, chair exercise and other movement classes, and gardening…just to mention a few.

We offer a modern upscale atmosphere with an intimate setting.  Our homes are more quaint than large assisted living communities and more active than small residential care homes.  We offer the perfect happy medium between the two extremes that most assisted living settings feature.

Bob

One of our founders, Kyle, moved his dad (Bob) from Hawaii to the Mainland in order to care for him.  He knew moving Bob away from the place he lived most of his life meant that it was his responsibility to help him maintain connections to his life back home – relatives, neighbors, friends, and his sister.  We encourage local family visits and the use of technology for family and friends who live far away.
