Professional Health Care
A team of registered health care professionals, including nurses, dietician, and social worker, are on staff in at Villa Cathay. Our team works closely with the resident’s physician, the contracted pharmacist, visiting physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other external providers to achieve the individualized care. At Villa Cathay, licensed nurses (including RN, RPN, and LPN) provide round-the-clock care for our residents. Assessments, administering medication, care planning, and chronic disease management are examples of routine duties our professional care team provides.
Professionally trained care aides work collaboratively with residents, family members, and the health care team to assist residents with the required daily activities for personal care. Personal care, including feeding, personal hygiene, grooming, dressing, toileting, and mobility, is provided to complement each senior’s ability to live as safely and independently as possible. Honouring individualized preferences and preserving dignity are essential in our personal care plan.
Recreation and Other Activities
We value recreation and leisure activities as major contributors to improve the quality of life of our residents. Our programs are designed to encourage the residents to interact with each other and when possible, to remain engaged with the community at large. We offer a wide variety of programs and activities to stimulate and entertain the residents regularly. Some of the programs and activities offered include exercises & games, crafts, celebrations & special events, religious services, television & movies and summer outings (June – September).
Our daily menu features Chinese cuisine for the three main meals of the day and is supplemented with afternoon & evening snacks. The meals are prepared with fresh ingredients by our kitchen staff on site, designed and supervised by registered dietician to meet the individual dietary needs of our residents. Alternate entrees and vegetarian options are also available. At Villa Cathay, we believe food and nutrition play an important role in the residents’ general health and strive to create a pleasant experience through food services.
