Roosevelt's practice is to provide all residents with a calm and friendly environment, along with an interdisciplinary team made up of, but not limited to, physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and recreation staff. In addition to resident care, Roosevelt emphasizes support for family members, who have often been caretakers in their own right.
Nursing staff has been trained to perform a variety of specialty functions, such as I.V. antibiotic therapy, pain-management techniques and wound care. When residents and families opt for palliative or comfort care, these resources can be directed toward pain management and designated levels of intervention.
Roosevelt Care Center at Edison collaborates with physicians, who provide both weekday, as well on-call weekend services. These primary care physicians consult with experts in treating a wide range of diseases and conditions. Taking this collaborative approach, Roosevelt avoids unnecessary hospital and medical office visits, while effectively and more efficiently caring for residents in a relaxed setting.
The Roosevelt subacute rehabilitation program consists of an individualized approach to physical, occupational and speech therapy. In order to achieve maximum levels of functioning, the program utilizes Nautilus© equipment specifically designed for therapy. Each member of the interdisciplinary team contributes to a comprehensive care plan tailored to meet an individual resident's needs. This collaboration also provides residents with the tools for a safe discharge and frequently results in shorter lengths of stay.
Roosevelt Care Center at Edison offers a full continuum of care for those residents with all stages of Alzheimer's and dementia. The unit delivers quality care by providing nursing staff, who've completed cognitive-impairment focused training and an environment geared toward all aspects of the disease. As the disease progresses, residents can be transitioned into more of a medical-model program.
The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has acknowledged Roosevelt Care Center at Edison's excellent recreational programming. Operating seven days a week, this program is comprised of regularly-scheduled activities, seasonal, holidays and themed parties and off-campus trips. Many of the activities and events are planned with the community's participation, as Roosevelt residents remain visible members of Middlesex County's social fabric. To further accommodate the resident population, each facility maintains weekly religious services as well.
