SERVICES & AMENITIES
Southern Hospitality Home prides ourself on our concierge-level services and comfortable amenities that are a part of our residents everyday life. Below you will find a detailed list of the services and amenities provided at our senior care home.
UNPARALLELED INDIVIDUALIZED CARE
Southern Hospitality Home accepts residents requiring most levels of care. We are a private licensed “Small Type B” assisted living facility with a maximum capacity of 15 residents. We provide 24 hour, comprehensive care to all residents. Our staff are licensed, certified, and professionally trained caretakers who validate each residents’ individuality with acceptance and attention. The overnight staff remains awake during the overnight hours to assist residents when needed. At maximum capacity, our ratio is 2 caregivers to 15 residents.
SUPERVISED MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
All direct care staff are trained and tested on medication administration and supervision by our registered nurse in accordance with our licensing provider, Texas Health and Human Services Commission. A board-certified internist makes house calls as needed, but residents are free to use their own medical doctors.
Residents who qualify may receive Medicare-reimbursed in-home therapies and rehabilitation on site with the assistance of a home health agency.
Each resident receives a 30 minute therapeutic massage from a licensed massage therapist, indeed the highlight of their week!
FULL-TIME ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR
Our full-time Activity Program Director holds a degree in Gerontology and has been with Southern Hospitality Home since 1998. He coordinates a variety of therapeutic programs which contribute to our stimulating atmosphere. Click here to see a sample of a typical weekly activity schedule.
SAFE & PEACEFUL NEIGHBORHOOD
Southern Hospitality Home is situated in a quiet, established neighborhood in Central Austin, across from a park. The area has level streets, perfect for resident walks. A screened porch faces the park, allowing the residents to enjoy watching neighbors stroll their children and exercise their dogs.
HYGIENE IS TOP PRIORITY
To maintain continence and to ensure cleanliness, we offer regular toileting schedules. For their safety, we assist residents with all manners of personal hygiene and grooming when needed.
HEALTHY CHEF-PREPARED MEALS
Fresh nutritious meals are prepared and served by professional chefs. Because proper nutrition is vital to our residents’ well-being, we specialize in pro-health cuisine that is heart-healthy (low in sodium and saturated fat, high in fiber). We are happy to accommodate special diets if needed or requested.
COMPLIANT & READILY PREPARED
State licensure as a “Small Type B” home requires a fully automated fire sprinkler system in all rooms, including closets and bathrooms. Staff are trained to assist residents for evacuation in the event of an emergency.
THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF CARE AT THE RIGHT TIME
Our services focus on fostering the residents’ independence with scheduled toileting to maintain continence, walks and exercises to maintain physical strength and flexibility, encouragement and praise to maintain integrity and self-respect. We also provide respite care and adult day services through special arrangement.
