Live the Lifestyle You DeserveLearn More About Our Living Options Today.
When choosing an assisted living facility for you or your loved ones, we realize that it may be an overwhelming process. It’s natural to want to weigh your options to see what facilities are out there and what exactly they have to offer.
Comparing and contrasting Mill Run to other nursing homes in Columbus, Ohio is now easier than ever, because with this handy guide we present several reasons why we stand out as a facility – and more importantly – a community.
We Aren’t a Nursing Home
Something that makes us different from other Columbus nursing homes is that we don’t think of ourselves as a nursing home. Rather, we would consider ourselves a caring community that specializes in a wide range of services.
We have the utmost respect for Columbus nursing homes, but as an assisted living facility, we take pride in providing a safe and secure environment for seniors to age within while offering them specialized elder assistance. This assistance may be physical, emotional, social or medical.
Our Personalized Care
At Mill Run, we are committed to giving our residents exactly what they need, while working to build a genuine bond with them and their families.
In addition to taking the time to get to know our residents, our staff will also create a personalized nursing plan based on specific health and wellness needs. We realize that our residents will require varying levels of assistance, so it would not make sense to give them each identical care.
Therefore, our care plans are catered to each individual resident, in the hopes of doing everything we can to allow our residents to maintain healthy lifestyles.
Some of the health services we can provide our residents on an as-needed basis include:
- In-house therapy provided by National Church Residences Home and Community Services
- Chronic disease and pain management – COPD, diabetes, CHF
- Medication oversight
- 24-hour supervision
- Dementia and other memory care programs
There are No Limited Visitor Hours
Unlike other Columbus nursing homes that limit the time visitors may come to see their loved ones, Mill Run has no set visiting hours. This is important because:
- This means that a resident can have their loved ones come to visit 24/7, 365 days a year.
- Whether family members want to come visit every Sunday, on holidays, or at times that fit their schedule, they will always be welcome. All that we request is that visitors sign in at the front desk.
- Visitors are also always welcome to have lunch or dinner with us, and can call us at 614-771-0100 to make a reservation.
Our Premier Memory Care Services
The memory care assistance given at Mill Run is something we consider to be one of the finest services offered at any senior living community or Columbus nursing home.
Our fully-trained staff, which includes nurses, volunteers, physicians and a neurologist, are dedicated to improving the health of patients who may be coping with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other neurological disorders. Some factors to keep in mind include:
- Patients with such cognitive conditions will receive individual attention from our care practitioners and undergo a personalized health plan in order to improve cognition and wellness.
- These health plan options can include 24-hour nursing oversight, safety training and dysphagia (chewing and swallowing) treatments.
If you or a loved one would be interested in utilizing our memory care services, please contact us to receive more information.
Our Tranquility Garden
One feature of Mill Run that makes us stand apart from other Columbus nursing homes is our Tranquility Garden. To celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2015, Mill Run began construction on a one-of-a-kind Tranquility Garden.
Designed especially for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, our Tranquility Garden was created to give our senior patients friendly and familiar visuals – white picket fences, clotheslines, old bicycles and a wheelbarrow are just some of the outdoor remembrances that can be enjoyed while in the garden.
Our Tranquility Garden is intended to contribute to the health improvements of our patients, with activities such as flower-planting promoting social interaction, and ponds and fountains promoting a soothing serenity.
To learn more about our garden, its construction phases, or to donate to the project, please visit our Tranquility Garden page.
A Variety of Events and Outings
Unlike other communities, our Mill Run senior living community in Columbus, Ohio allows its residents to have active community lives and live comfortably through spacious floor plans and easy access to local shopping, medical offices and more.
For residents who come to live at our facility, we’ve placed an emphasis on making it as effortless as possible to enjoy senior living to its fullest. To do so, we schedule various activities and events for our seniors throughout the year.
These activities include visits from numerous groups directly to our facility (i.e. local preschools), themed dinners, and holiday parties.
In addition to great things happening right here in our community, we also host various outings as a facility (i.e. picnics in the park) that we hope our seniors will take advantage of.
