Southern Hills Family Focus

We believe that each resident’s family is as much a part of that person’s care team as the doctors, nurses, and other specialists on our staff. That is why family members are an integral part of our care-planning process.

We know that family members who have just placed a member in a residential facility have special needs too. To help them cope, we offer support meetings, pre-admission interviews, and personal meetings with administrative staff.

Families are welcomed and encouraged to attend social functions, or just stop in and visit. We consider you an important part of the fabric of life here.
