At Oyster Bay, we make independence a priority. We want every resident to have as much independence as they can handle and every bit of care that they need. Each resident is carefully assessed using a four-stage assessment. This allows us to create custom care plans that are as unique as every individual. We provide four levels of care: general medication and wellness, minimal assistance, moderate assistance, and extensive assistance. The nurses, med-techs, and other staff provide customized care within these levels every day, ensuring that the residents of our homelike elderly care facility are safe and happy and that all their needs are met.
