Kindred Home Health
Kensington Place provides strong clinical oversight and management through our excellent 24-hour Nursing Team. We are committed to help our residents stay active and healthy for as long as possible. At times our residents need an extra layer of support to strengthen their skills or to recover from an illness or injury. We partner on-site at Kensington Place with Kindred Home Health to help our residents recover safely and more independently in comfortable surroundings. Kindred Home Health works seamlessly with your Kensington Place family to provide care designed specifically for your loved one’s needs and abilities, whether you need skilled nursing and rehabilitation or non-medical personal assistance. Kindred Home Health, in partnership with Kensington Place, is designed to help your loved one take control of treatment, make changes that may prevent future declines in health, improve safety and prevent unwanted hospital visits. We provide care centered on your needs and abilities. Our goal is help you recover to the fullest extent possible as quickly as your treatment allows.
At Kensington Place, we love and care for your family as our own. Our goal is to help your loved one live every moment fully and with meaning. When end of life is near, we value these moments even more. Your Kensington Place family considers it an honor to care for your loved one in the last stage of life. Our residents also have the option of bringing in an additional layer of support through Hospice while living in our community. Hospice care may be right for your loved one when living with an end-stage illness, which has a six-month life expectancy, should the disease run its normal course. Should one choose Hospice, our residents can remain in their suite, that has become home, while continuing to receive care from the team they have come to love as family. Our primary partnership is with Kindred Hospice. Kindred Hospice exemplifies our hallmarks of protecting dignity, engaging family and friends and enriching each day. At the center of Kindred hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
Kindred partners with your Kensington Place family to provide the physical, emotional and spiritual resources needed to make the most of every moment, with the extraordinary service you expect. We understand your needs and goals, and support both in each step of your journey.
