When you move to Brown Deer Place, life will get a little more exciting and a lot more convenient. We believe in providing an all-inclusive lifestyle for all of our residents. This means, we don’t nickel and dime for every amenity we provide. Instead, here is a comprehensive listing of amenities that are included in the price of the rent.
Individualize Service Plans (ISP)
Many retirement communities charge fees for healthcare services based upon “levels of care.” Levels of care lump services together and fail to personalized needs, while charging everyone the same flat fee. Unlike those other communities, Brown Deer Place customizes our approach to healthcare services strictly based upon each individual’s personal healthcare needs through the development of Individualized Service Plans (ISP).
The ISP is a document that our Health Care Coordinator develops with each resident to determine which Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) a resident needs assistance with, and then calculates associated fees for this assistance based on the total number of minutes these tasks require. ADLs include tasks needed for bathing, mobility or medication management, for instance. The Brown Deer Place ISP uses15-minute increments for these ADL tasks. Thus, our fees are individualized for each resident. The benefit of an ISP is that each resident pays only for the care that they need and nothing more.
The ISP is a working document, meaning that the ISP is ever-changing based solely on the needs of each individual resident as their needs change over time. Upon moving to the community, a resident may not require assistance for ADLs. However, as time
passes and an individual’s healthcare needs change, the ISP is updated and always reflects only that person’s cares and assistance received.
