The New York State Department of Health has granted Daughters of Sarah Housing Company at Daughters of Sarah, Inc. d/b/a The Massry Residence at Daughters of Sarah licensure to provide Enhanced Assisted Living care to seniors. As an Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR), The Massry Residence can offer additional levels of care to our residents who wish to ‘age in place’ and continue to enjoy living life to its fullest at The Massry Residence.
Basic ALRs, like The Massry Residence, are designed to help residents live as independently as possible, and make decisions about how they want to live. Assisted Living Residences provide 24-hour supervision, and some assistance with activities of daily living. Residents need to be able to walk or use a wheelchair alone and be able to get from one place to another independently; do not have a medical condition that requires skilled nursing and medical care; and do not pose a danger to themselves or others.
Eligibility for Enhanced Assisted Living level of care requires an individual to have more complex physical needs requiring greater assistance with their activities of daily living. Such assistance may include transferring in and out of a wheelchair, managing oxygen regimen, or providing nursing care for chronic urinary or bowel conditions. The need for Enhanced Assisted Living care helps bridge the gap between basic assisted living care and that of a nursing home.
The mission of Daughters of Sarah Senior Community is to enhance the quality of life, assure the safety and dignity, and foster the independence of those we serve through residential, personal care, health, and other services.
