Onora, a family-owned business in Ocean Township, provides nursing support and care for people with early stages of memory loss in an intimate home setting for its senior residents.
“We are driven by our personal experiences and embrace the practice of heart-centered care. Onora team members understand the importance of integrating life enrichment care to give your loved one a truly individualized experience,” Director of Community Outreach Tara Cadet said.
“Our innovative residential, daycare, and respite enrichment programs focus on each resident’s needs to optimize brain function, foster confidence and increase happiness. Caring for our residents is an emotional investment for our caregivers as much as it is an emotional experience for our residents and their families,” she said.
Onora, which opened just this year, will host a network event and a wine and cheese party, called “The Road To Healing,” at its headquarters at 1213 West Park Avenue this Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. The event will benefit Mary’s Place by the Sea in Ocean Grove, a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.
A donation of $10 is suggested and there will be a chance to win a wine and cheese basket. RSVP to Cadet at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-218-1365.
Onora is a resident home committed to providing homelike nutritious meals that accommodate various tastes and eating preferences not found in traditional facilities, including Gluten-free meals. The residential health-care home provides 24-hour nursing care on site and a doctor dedicated to home visits and added availability of podiatrists and other specialists which limits the amount of transit appointments. Lab work is also done on site.
Unlike assisted-living facilities, Onora’s focus is on concierge care which offers a holistic approach tailored to a member’s unique abilities and interests. The facility has a full-time concierge service, as well as a beauty salon, spa services, aroma therapy and in-home physical therapy and occupational therapy.
“Onora is setting new standards in caregiving,” Cadet said.
Working with each resident and their loved ones, Onora develops a specialized plan to address the unique emotional, social and physical needs of each resident. By limiting the home to a maximum of 15 residents, the company commits the attention, the compassion and the experience to fit each individual. The lower resident-to-staff ratio enables residents to develop a trusting relationship with the staff, which is a critical dynamic ensuring a good quality of life.
Onora contracts services with eCare-Solutions, a creative designer and implementer of technology-assisted care models. The visionary models focus on blending the proper balance of technology and care, keeping individuals safe and independent in their surroundings.
The company’s daily life enrichment program, called The PATH, builds upon the unique path of a resident’s life by enhancing old passions and cultivating new interests. The PATH focuses on the passions and life experiences of the resident and incorporates them into his/her daily life, integrating activities that support and awaken these experiences.
“It could be a love of travel, addressed by our lunch and cultural-based activities, or a sing-along for the music lover and hands-on food prep for those who enjoy cooking. Residents help create their day and their schedule, rather than having it designed by staff. This truly holistic care enhances brain functioning while helping residents take pride and ownership of the decisions they’ve made to fill their day,” Cadet said.
“Onora team members understand the importance of integrating life enrichment care to give your loved one a truly individualized experience,” she said.
