Maintaining a well-trained staff in retirement communities is extremely important, but did you know that some retirement homes throughout the U.S. have been fined for medical errors? This is why Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe only employs staff who are trained and qualified to work with our residents.

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
While many families attempt to care for aging parents and grandparents alone, the task can be daunting for those who aren’t formally trained. This is especially true if elders are suffering from dementia, as they can display behaviors that are very difficult to deal with, such as health complications, hydration issues, aggression, wandering, sundowning, side effects from medication, and difficulties performing the most basic tasks. As you can imagine, this can quickly take its toll even on loved ones.
By becoming a member of our community, elders will have access to food safety protocols, 24-hour monitoring, and infection control with psychosocial care, features which no untrained person will be able to provide. Our nurses will also provide supervision and extended care, and we can accommodate those who have special needs such as ostomy, oxygen, or catheters. We watch vital signs carefully and every dwelling is wheelchair accessible.
