Benefits of Small Group Settings in Assisted Living Homes Centennial
The small group settings in all the Lighthouse Assisted Living Homes Centennial ensure non-institutional, informal, less intimidating atmosphere and environments for the residents. The high staff to residents' ratio enables the homes to offer one-on-one attention. Monitoring and supervision of the residents becomes that much easier in small group settings, which is not easy to achieve in large environments. Liz Littleton, RN Administrator of Lighthouse Assisted Living comments, "My house call trips with my father, a physician, made me think why people afflicted by dementia disorders should not live in small home-like atmosphere. I felt that such homes quartering limited number of residents will lead to higher love and attention bestowed on them. Hence, I embarked on the Lighthouse Assisted Living Homes venture. The same concept enabled me to revamp the facilities and features at all the three Centennial Assisted Living Homes and to refurbish the services to strive for even higher quality senior health care."
