In the coastal town of Depoe Bay, a new licensed adult foster care home has opened. This new business, Sunset Senior Living Center LLC., offers residential care for seniors or people with disabilities.
Catherine Hingson and Cynthia Stanley-Adams offer care for people who can no longer care for themselves in their own home and would prefer to be in a home environment instead of an institutional placement. Following a stroke or aneurysm, a doctor may recommend that his or her patient not return home. Sunset Senior Living Center can provide a safe, consistent, and caring environment where residents are able to have an individualized approach to their care and interests. As a Class 2 home S.S.L.C. is serving those who would benefit from having nutritious meals prepared for them, assistance with the daily tasks of living, and maintain as much independence as possible.
For many people a home environment rather than a large facility is preferable. Some of the differences you might find in a smaller setting include that communicable diseases are much less prevalent, the turn-over in staff is not as high, it’s quieter, a private room, and the resident is more involved in selecting home-cooked meals and activities of their own choice. In this small family owned and operated business the ratio of care providers to residents is one-on-one. ‘Our Home is Your Home’ is the motto of Sunset Senior Living Center. “This means that residents will still be able to see friends and family, do the activities that they love, and get the help they need by capable educated women who live with them, and do what you would if you could be home caring for your loved one yourself”, stated Catherine Hingson.
Catherine Hingson has a special education degree, is an accomplished cook, and is an artist as well as a caregiver. She has owned the house on Cliff St in Depoe Bay for almost 20 years. Cindy is also an artist, has a psychology degree, and enjoys working with the elderly on a daily basis.
Providing long-term care and support for the elderly and people with disabilities could be the biggest problem our health care systems face today. The median annual nursing home cost for a semi-private room in 2017 was $85,775.00 according to Genworth Financial.
In facing the complexities and expenses of health care, Oregon’s elder population has a more cost effective solution than the 2017 average cost with Sunset Senior Living Center. We have a private room open for an individual or couple and are able to offer more individual care at a more affordable rate. When speaking about opening Sunset Senior Living Center Catherine Hingson said, “My hope is that there is someone in the area that has wanted to move their parent closer to them but hasn’t found the right placement, we might have just the right situation for them.”
Sunset Senior Living Center is an adult foster care home close to the ocean in a nice neighborhood where seniors or people with a disability can enjoy residential care in an environment that is enriching.
