The Pines of Newmarket was designed with senior comfort and safety in mind. Our community is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood in residential Newmarket, NH. Each of our senior apartments is equipped with an emergency response system, and safety support bars in all bathrooms. On our staff, we have medication care managers, as well as LPNs and RNs, with on-call access to local specialists. With our 24-hour awake staff, our residents receive around-the-clock support and supervision, so you never have to worry about your senior loved ones.
When choosing a senior living community, it is important to ensure that the medical needs of you or your senior loved one can be met. Unlike skilled nursing facilities or nursing homes, which provide around-the-clock care for residents who need a high level of medical assistance, at The Pines of Newmarket, we do not offer 24-hour on-staff nursing. We do, however, offer licensed nursing services and a 24-hour awake staff for safety. Our on-staff nurses work 7 days a week; after hours, we have on-call nurses who are readily available in case they are needed. However, our assisted living community is not a licensed nursing home.
If you have additional questions about the differences between assisted living and a nursing home, we would be more than happy to discuss this with you.
We provide scheduled transportation for residents. We do have dedicated on-call doctors, podiatrists, speech therapists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, but if a resident needs to see a specialist, we can always provide scheduled transportation to the appointment.
Additionally, for resident activities or outings, we always provide transportation. Even if it’s only one resident who wants to go on an adventure, we’re always willing to add trips to our community activities calendars.
The answer to this question is complex and can be very personal. We offer a wide variety of resources to help you decide if you or your senior loved one is ready for assisted living. While there are many signs that a loved one may be ready for assisted living, several key questions to consider are:
- Do they have mobility issues that put them at greater risk for a fall?
- Do they need help bathing or dressing?
- Are they isolated or lonely?
- Do they remember to take their prescribed medication?
- Do they need help preparing meals, or need to be reminded to eat?
- Are they staying adequately hydrated, or do they need to be reminded to drink enough water?
- Have they been recently hospitalized or are you noticing any unexplained bruises or injuries, indicating recent falls?
These are just a few questions to ask when considering the transition into assisted living, and our senior care staff is here to help you to navigate this difficult process. Contact our senior living advisors today.
Respite care is temporary, short-term assisted living for seniors. Our respite care services can provide short-term support for seniors whose primary caregiver may be out of town or who may temporarily need a bit of extra support after a hospital stay or surgery. Respite care is also a wonderful option for seniors who may not be ready for a long-term commitment, but still want to give assisted living a try.
