Spring Hills Senior Communities: Signature Touches

by Glori Gayster

Spring Hills Senior Communities’ distinctive services encourage total well-being.

Anyone who has cared for an aging loved one knows it can be one of the most difficult experiences. Finding the right resources and experienced caregivers to assist is important, and Spring Hills Cherry Hill, a luxury senior living community, is just such a place.

“We truly pride ourselves on being a resource: guiding families in their search, taking time to discover what they need and helping with the decision process,” says Christina O'Leary, Spring Hills' director of branding and project management. “Moms in the middle is a phrase we use often—a woman with young children and aging family members. At Spring Hills Cherry Hill, we are here to help.”

Spring Hills Senior Communities manages a full range of innovative and distinctive services, backed by its Signature Touches, for a uniquely individualized approach. From home care services to assisted living communities, the Spring Hills mission is to provide caring with a commitment to quality, and make healthy living the foundation of every aspect of life.

O’Leary adds, “Our Signature Touches program encourages health, wellness and peace of mind for total well-being. It also exemplifies our promise to take the time necessary to understand clients’ unique qualities, daily routines, family relations and medical concerns.”

Stay at home longer
Most often, the goal is to keep people in their own home as long as safely possible. Launched in 2010, Spring Hills Home Care Services was born as a result. According to O’Leary, “Our Home Care Services is dedicated to finding the right caregiver. Like all of our standards, we take a very personalized approach in the screening and selection process. Specifically, we focus on families’ specific concerns, needs and desires as a means of enhancing quality of life.”

Spring Hills Home Care Services is licensed by the state of New Jersey and a care nurse and care coordinator work closely with each client to determine the most suitable option. Sometimes it is assistance 24 hours a day and, at other times, it could involve caregiving several days a week. Successfully matching clients and caregivers relies on several key areas, including open communication, encouragement, family involvement and collaboration with skilled professionals.

Proper needs assessment combined with a thorough screening process is where Spring Hills Home Care Services excels. “We feel clients and their families deserve the right to choose, which means staying at home, with the caregiver they choose,” says O’Leary.

Unfortunately, there may come a time when home care isn't enough. In those instances, the relationship fostered between Spring Hills Home Care Services team, caregivers and families can make the transition into a senior living environment much easier.

When the time comes
Even the phrase “assisted living” can be unsettling to families and their aging loved ones. It can bring to mind a loss of freedom and fears that are hard to overcome. However, the right assisted living community actually does more than support an independent lifestyle; it encourages residents to live vibrant, full lives with peace of mind.

“Our resident concierge is key in the transition from home to assisted living and takes our caring commitment to the next level, by making each resident's move in individualized and personal to their likes and dislikes,” O’Leary says.

Located in the heart of South Jersey, Spring Hills Cherry Hill offers a choice of luxury studios, one- and two-bedroom suites, each with a private bath, walk-in closet and full-size kitchen. For those who prefer not to cook, three nutritionally balanced meals are served daily and residents have a large menu of cuisine options made to order from the freshest natural and organic ingredients.

In addition to providing experienced, professional care 24 hours a day to assist with medical or personal needs, residents enjoy a wide variety of activities and complimentary transportation for shopping, excursions and planned activities nearby. In addition to social functions, the specially designed Town Center has a movie theater, ice cream parlor, fitness center, family game and media room, and more. The men and women’s full service salons even offer massages.

Making the right choice
Spring Hills Senior Communities and Spring Hills Home Care Services provide premier senior living options and services designed to meet the individual needs of seniors throughout South Jersey.

“At Spring Hills Senior Communities, the needs of our assisted living residents and Spring Hills Home Care Services clients come first,” says Alex C. Markowits, president and CEO. “I believe seniors are unique individuals who have the right to choose and to live each day with as much independence and dignity as possible. We make that possible through innovation, cutting-edge service solutions, and caring with a commitment to quality."

O’Leary adds, “For us, it’s not just about the business. It’s about doing what's right and in the best interest of the person requiring care.”
