Most rooms have private access to one of the many patio areas in the residence. The rooms are furnished with all of the basic amenities; including furniture, linens, and toiletries.

The pool is fenced in for the safety of the residents. There are several common room areas including two living areas, two dining areas, and a large kitchen. A patio extends around the entire home affording many private areas where residents can visit or have some time of solitude. Beautiful gardens surround the home which overlooks a view of the hills of Bonita. There is a raised garden where seniors can exercise their talents at gardening and a courtyard with a fountain and sitting area for others. The more active seniors can spend time with table tennis, croquet, horseshoes, WII, or other activities that are appealing to the guests.

Problems, Causes & Solutions

As individuals get older they may start to lose mobility and need constant assistance with their daily activities. This is troublesome for the loved ones of the individuals who are unable to leave their busy schedules to continuously assist them, or lack the knowledge and ability to help them.

Vintage Home & Residential Care offers a solution and relief for clients with special need seniors. Vintage takes the responsibility of tending to the elderly and making their transition to late life comfortable and easy. The benefit of this service enables seniors to be well taken care of while still leading an active life, and gives family members a peace of mind.

Product advantages

Vintage is located in an ideal climate in the community of Bonita, California. Seniors experience pleasant conditions of a combination of coastal and inland valley climates. Staying warmer and sunnier during May Gray and June Gloom periods, the area is also not as hot during summer and spring seasons. This is perfect for seniors who may suffer arthritis, joint problems, or are susceptible to colds.

Product Liability

The liabilities in a senior care home facility are high if not taken seriously. Initially, in order to be an established facility the owner must adhere to local and federal regulations of the home. Once that is implemented owners ensure that nurses, staff members and residents are being taken care of and treated cautiously.

The death of a resident due to malpractice or negligence of a member can lead to a serious lawsuit against the individual and/or establishment.

In response to reports of widespread neglect and abuse in senior care homes in the 1980s, congress passed a legislation act in 1987. Some of the requirements include a sufficient nursing staff, developing a comprehensive care plan for each resident, and preventing the deterioration of a residents ability to bathe, dress, groom, eat and to communicate[1].

The facility must have all the necessary precautions in order to safe guard the health of residents. Gates must be enforced if hosting a resident with Alzheimers or Dementia. Bathrooms must have grips and handles on the side in order to prevent any falls that can lead to serious injuries while bathing.

Product Development Activities

It is a possibility that Vintage would open a second facility after several years of operation in the current home. This second location will offer the same quality service and ensure residents a quality lifestyle away from their family.
