Exciting news! Gulf Coast Village, an award-winning healthcare pro-vider primarily in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, is expanding its services. In March 2013, Gulf Coast Village’s office in Bonita Springs will open. This new location will allow us to deliver Home Health and Home Care services to residents in southern Lee and Collier counties. Additionally, it will serve as the office for Senior Choice at Home, Gulf Coast Village’s membership-based program designed to provide lifelong care services for seniors so they can retain independence at home.
Home Health and Home Care
Backed by 25 years of experience, Gulf Coast Village’s Home Health and Home Care has been offering Southwest Floridians expert assistance in their homes following a stay in the hospital or a skilled nursing rehabilitation facility. A majority of this assistance has been done for residents who live in our beautiful continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Cape Coral or residents in the surrounding area. However, we have recognized the tremendous need to expand our services to residents who live in Estero, Bonita Springs, and Naples. They don’t just need home health care; they need experienced home health care. We are eager to bring this to the market to qualifying seniors in Lee and Collier counties. How wonderful to know that this expansion will give more seniors greater access to healthcare services than they otherwise would have had.
“It’s rare to find a local Home Health and Home Care agency with the experience that Gulf Coast Village provides; you can rest assured knowing that you or your loved one is being cared for by professionals supported by an organization that’s been a leader in healthcare for 25 years in Southwest Florida,” says Jennifer Grimes, Gulf Coast Village’s Executive Director of Healthcare Services.
“You have a choice when it comes to selecting a Home Health or Home Care provider,” Grimes continues, “Gulf Coast Village is certain that you or your loved one will be confident that our licensed staff is the most qualified, friendly, and caring. They will tend to your health needs, make you comfortable, and allow you to have the highest level of independence possible in your own home.”
Gulf Coast Village takes care of a variety of health needs, including care or support in the following areas:
• Nursing Visits, including Drawing and Monitoring
• Assessment and Treatment of All Body Systems
• Patient and Caregiver Education and Support
• Incontinence Management
• Medication Assistance
• Wound Care
• Post-general Surgery Care
• Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy
• Nutritional Education and Support
Private home care aides can assist you or your loved one with numerous in-home services:
• Light Housekeeping and Laundry
• Meal Preparation
• Shopping and Errands
• Bathing, Grooming, and Dressing
Senior Choice at Home
Senior Choice at Home is the only program of its kind in Florida to bring the full continuum of services and conveniences that one typically would find in a CCRC and deliver them right where seniors already have chosen to live: their very own homes. Think of it as a continuing care retirement community at home. It’s not home health and it’s not long-term insurance; rather, it’s an investment in the future for your long-term care, knowing that when you may need it, your services will be provided through a comprehensive program of continuing care services right at home. Senior Choice at Home acknowledges that people want to live at home, and has developed a superior program to assist people to successfully age in place.
Bonita Springs Office
The Bonita office means that Gulf Coast Village will be able to deliver all of these services – whether it’s Home Health, Home Care, or Senior Choice at Home – from a location that makes the most sense for Estero, Bonita Springs, and Naples residents.
“Our goal is to provide care to more residents in Southwest Florida so they can experience the excellent services that Gulf Coast Village has been providing all along,” says Grimes, “Gulf Coast Village has been a healthcare leader in this market for 25 years, and now is a prime opportunity for us to demonstrate to the community what many in Cape Coral already know.”
Geri Spaeth, Executive Director for Senior Choice at Home, agrees. “Our Bonita office will allow so many to see how Senior Choice at Home can benefit them – how it’s so vastly different from anything they may have considered in the past as they plan for their future healthcare needs. We’re excited about the opportunity to educate seniors about another choice they have and how we can help them successfully age in place with our program.”
