Dalistan Care Home is a 12-bed, all private room residential care facility for the elderly (RCFE), nestled in a residential neighborhood, and located within walking distance of downtown Ukiah in the heart of Mendocino County. Our home is conveniently near shops, restaurants, and parks and in close vicinity to the Ukiah Valley Medical Center, Ukiah Rural Health Center, and numerous medical offices, clinics and pharmacies.
Our residential care home operates on the principles of:
- Recognizing the unique resident: We understand that every resident who becomes a part of our community brings with them a life full of experiences and specific characteristics. Our individual care plans are designed to maximize the potential for each resident to thrive as well as to better equip our care staff in providing the particular needs and services.
- Promoting independence: At Dalistan’s we recognize the importance of encouraging independence and self-reliance. Though we understand that our residents require a higher level of assistance with their activities of daily living (ADL’s), there are many simple independent tasks that greatly benefit the quality of life. Encouraging social participation, mobility and exercise, and routine decision-making are a few of the activities that our home applies.
- Establishing the team effort: The care team at Dalistan’s works with the knowledge that more hands and cooperation for the resident can only benefit their stay here. We encourage healthy communication and participation by the family, friends, and medical professionals, in order to provide exceptional service for our residents.
- Commitment to quality care: Our commitment to providing the needs of our residents is very important to us at Dalistan’s. Each staff member is prepared to listen, focus, and provide the needs for each individual. Through continuing education, first aid classes, elder care, and memory care training our staff is able to stay up to date in their skills for providing resident care. We also implement rigorous standards in keeping our home safe and clean for our residents.
Finding the right environment for a loved one is a difficult decision and the amount of uncertainty can be overwhelming: Where do I start? What sort of things should I look for? Will my loved one and I be heard? Will they be able to thrive?
Any transition can be taxing and we at Dalistan’s ensure that, through pre-appraisals and reviewing of current condition, an honest assessment will be made in regards to placement for your loved one. We are committed to every individual that is a part of our home, is a part of our family, as a partner in trust and care.
