Location

Located adjacent to the Daysland Hospital and owned by the Daysland and District Aging In Place Foundation. The Foundation is a not for profit group with a board made up of representatives from various groups, including Town Council. The original board and society started plans on their vision of Providence Place in 1997, and Phase 1 opened its doors in July of 2000. Phase 11 followed in 2006, phase 111 in 2008, and Phase 1V in 2011.

Our Philosophy

Providence Place has adopted the Eden Model of Care as our guiding philosophy. The Eden philosophy is based on 10 principles that provide guidance on how we can ensure our residents live meaningful lives. It creates an environment that promotes activities and social interactions for our seniors and encourages them to be active members of their communities, and to be involved every day  in activities which they find meaningful.  It creates an atmosphere where seniors want to live, families want to visit and care partners want to be employed.

At Providence Place we are focused on wellness, rather than illness.  Our residents are vital, active members of our community – and they have a lot of fun! Our seniors not only partake in, but are encouraged to plan and initiate many of our social activities! They have voices and choices, and their new lifestyles are filled with satisfying and gratifying growth for themselves and their loved ones.

We provide numerous opportunities for social interaction amongst our residents and their families. Afternoon teas, birthday celebrations, parties, games, crafts, exercise classes, scheduled daily activities and social outings are enjoyed by our residents and care partners alike. Through our residents board, our management and care partners continually seek our seniors input so as to provide the best experience possible for our family here at Providence Place.


Aging in Place

We all wish to stay in our homes for as long as possible. Providence Place supports having our residents move between levels of care with the least possible amount of disruption for themselves and their families, and to remain in their home of choice for as long as possible.

The Center for Disease Control defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level." Most adults would prefer to age in place—that is, remain in their home of choice as long as possible.
