I'm kind of conflicted over this. The building where I live is an Independent/Assisted/Memory Care facility. Technically, I'm in the Independent section and pay for some services on an "a la' carte" basis. I've been here about 18 months and I have had to call for the Care Attendants to come pick me up off the floor 4 or 5 times (last time was in November). I've also had to call for assistance getting into bed on many occasions, although only twice in the last two months.
I'm guessing there are maybe 70-80 residents. I'm probably the youngest at 69...most are in late 70's early 80's. Since I've been here, there have been two deaths in the building...both from hearth failure (I think)...one was found in bed, the other on the floor. After the last one, the building management has instituted a "bed check" program. The policy says that one of the CAs should visit "at risk" patients in the evening to ensure they're in bed safely.
Problem is...when (and even if) the CA shows up is unpredictable. I usually get in bed around 7pm and watch TV until 9-10. About half show up around 8, stick their head in the door and call my name. I answer, they're done. Others don't show up until later and since I'm asleep and don't answer, come into my bedroom to check on me. Occasionally, this wakes me up.
On the one hand, I'm grateful for their concern...on the other hand, annoyed at the invasion of privacy. Not sure what to do about this.
