ST. LOUIS, MO., MARCH 17, 2015
Construction is complete on Oak Pointe of Maryville, a new senior living community located at 817 South Country Club Road in Maryville, Missouri, and now the community is preparing to welcome its first residents at the end of the month. Oak Pointe of Maryville is expecting a total of 25 residents who made pre-deposits on apartments during the construction phase to move in between late March and early April.
Kim Florea, RN, executive director at Oak Pointe of Maryville, said, “We take time to gradually move everyone in at a pace that works for them. We certainly don’t want to bring in all the residents at once on the same day, as that could be a bit overwhelming. We want to do what works best for them, with the least amount of stress involved.”
As residents move in, they meet one-on-one with the community’s directors so they can learn about each resident’s specific needs for such things as medication assistance, preferred meal times and social activities. Many of the directors had already met with residents and families during the construction phase at a few small meet-and-greets arranged by the Oak Pointe of Maryville staff. The gatherings gave residents a chance to get to know their future neighbors and allowed families to become more at ease with the idea of moving their loved one into an assisted living community.
“In some cases, families have been constantly worrying about the possibility of a parent who is still living at home sustaining a fall, not managing medications well, lacking proper nutrition and much more, added Florea. “In assisted living, the families don’t have to worry about those things anymore. When they come to visit their loved one, they get to visit rather than care for the house, lawn or repairs. They just get to enjoy being with their loved one, because we take care of all of those aspects. This move will certainly be a welcome change for those caregivers.”
