Angelic Place is a step-up in care from a standard larger assisted living or retirement facility offering more “hands-on” assistance with resident’s activities of daily living as well stand-by assistance.
The additional personal attention is especially important after some independence has been lost due to health complications.
We are a small five-bed home with a loving and attentive staff trained in health care. We maintain a one-to-five staff-to-patient ratio. This becomes important when the issue of a fall, or any accident may have occurred, or your family member is recovering from a crisis or health situation. While we cannot guarantee that falls will not occur, our track record is superior.
Our staff is trained in watching for signs and behaviors that can indicate the beginning of a urinary tract infection (UTI) or possibly the beginning of something more serious.
We utilize home health agencies and hospice when required as time goes by.

She is interested and active in all areas of elder care issues and promotes “Aging in Place” in her home setting as a right, not a privilege, as some have suggested.

She is an artist specializing in roses and still life oil paintings. Brenda’s paintings are in private collections throughout the world. Private commissions are painted by request from time to time.
