Compassion & coordination for changing needs.

As a resident of a Life Plan Community, you’ll have the security of knowing that when you need an extra hand… you’ll have priority access to an extensive variety of support services by compassionate team members.

This ongoing support network of services and professionals is called ‘living in place’— a resident-centered approach to care. Designed to enhance a resident’s life as their needs change over time, this coordination-of-care model supports a resident’s choice of freedom and independence.

Residents remain in familiar surroundings, close to friends and caregivers who they know and trust, while maintaining a safe and dignified quality of life.

Resident Services Coordinators

Tel Hai’s on-staff Resident Services Coordinators serve as advocates for residents and can provide individualized assistance in pairing a resident’s need with a solution—from making a connection with a support group to scheduling housekeeping services.

During times of transition or a change in medical status, extra support is provided and coordinated through our Resident Services Coordinators.

Health Services Coordinators

Tel Hai’s on-staff Health Services Coordinators provide essential living-in-place clinical services to ensure the ongoing safety and security of residential living residents. They monitor and provide for the medical needs of a resident through emergency response, physician contact, accurate and complete clinical assessments and requests for physician services. They also follow up with a resident after a hospitalization or transfer from/to another level of care and assess their adjustment to the new living environment.

Support Groups

Tel Hai facilitates three support groups that provide loving compassion, shared experiences and information for spouses, friends, family, and the greater community.

Caregiver Support Group

This group provides support and coping skills from fellow caregivers in a confidential and caring environment. Facilitators have a working knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, and can provide information, resources and referrals to assist you in your caregiver role.  This group is open to all individuals, including those from the greater community.

Physical Disability Support Group

This group provides discussion and peer mentorship among people who identify as physically disabled. Support is also provided to caregivers who are experiencing stress in coping with their loved ones’ physical changes due to complicated medical issues, physical limitations, new diagnosis, etc. This group is open to residents and family members of Tel Hai Retirement Community only.
