A Word from Our Director of Nursing
“Hi! My name is Sheri Adasczik. I am the Director of Nursing services here at El Jen Convalescent and Retirement. I have worked for El Jen for the past 16 years. Our facility offers 24 hour nursing care and three distinct levels of care.”
Are you looking for an assisted living facility where your loved one can enjoy comfort and companionship while still maintaining the highest level of independence and personal freedom possible? Our assisted living unit offers a variety of nursing services, including skilled services provided in a very home-like setting. Perhaps your loved one only needs diabetic monitoring, insulin administration and medication monitoring? We can help. What’s more, this unit is staffed with a registered nurse (RN) 24 hours a day and we have nursing assistants that can meet the complex yet important needs of your loved one, all while allowing your loved one a sense of home and independence.
Our rehabilitation unit was uniquely designed as it provides semi-private rooms with a wall between the beds for an enhanced feeling of privacy. This unique design also gives a homelike atmosphere.
Each individual who is accepted for rehabilitation is carefully evaluated according to certain established criteria. Upon acceptance, our highly trained therapeutic team becomes intensively involved in regimented programs tailored to the resident’s individual needs.
In addition to 24-hour nursing services, our therapeutic team consists of a rehab medical director, physical, occupational, and speech therapists. The primary goal is to develop a plan to assist the resident in returning to his / her previous living arrangements if possible.
Are you looking for a facility where your loved one can enjoy comfort and companionship while still maintaining the highest level of independence and personal freedom possible? Our retirement unit offers a variety of nursing services, including skilled services that are provided in a very homelike setting. Perhaps your loved one only needs diabetic monitoring, insulin administration and medication monitoring. We can help. What’s more, this unit is staffed with licensed nurses and CNAs (certified nursing assistants) 24 hours a day who can meet the individual needs of your loved one, all while allowing your loved one a sense of home and independence.
Throughout the retirement unit you will find sitting areas as well as our large living room where residents of the facility can go to read books, watch TV or movies, as well as having a quiet out of the way place to visit with their family.
“Long-Term” or Custodial Care
Our long-term care (custodial) area can accommodate 74 residents. We have 12 private rooms with the remaining rooms semi-private. Although referred to as our custodial unit, the services provided here include any skilled service from wound care, tube feedings, diabetic monitoring, etc.
The dietary department goes out of its way to provide meals that are home cooked. The dietary department plays a key role in not only providing nutritious meals but also in identifying the individual likes and dislikes as well as eating patterns prior to admission to make the resident’s dining experience as homelike as possible. Our kitchen is able to provide our residents with mechanically or therapeutic diets as ordered by his / her attending physician. Some of these special diets include but are not limited to diabetic restrictions, low sodium, low cholesterol, pureed, mechanical soft, renal diet, regular, etc. All meals are served restaurant style.
Most medical services provided to a resident are coordinated via the efforts of the physician in charge, nursing staff and social services professionals. Transportation is provided at a small charge for appointments to specialists, such as eye, hearing, pain management, orthopedic follow up or any other specialist outside the facility. The transportation services we provide can also include an aide to accompany the resident if the family is unavailable.
To ensure the highest quality of care, once a month the medical director meets with all department heads to ensure that quality of care and quality of life is maintained. In conjunction with the efforts of the Director of Nursing Services, El Jen Healthcare Center and Rehabilitation constantly critiques its own program and resident needs to ensure that each resident is receiving individualized care of the highest quality.
Each of our service areas are staffed with caring individuals who are dedicated to providing quality of care to our residents. For many of the staff members, El Jen Healthcare is a second home and family. Of our 150 employees, more than half are part of the 10-year plus program. This has allowed us to provide quality of care to Southern Nevada families in a homelike environment. The success of our facility is based on our family approach. It helps our residents to adjust to placement in a facility and become part of our extended family.
