The goal of the new service is to provide an even higher level of care to the elderly citizens who currently call, or who are thinking of calling Swifthaven home. With their new management program, their expert staff and carers can ensure that residents with medical conditions are correctly and consistently taking the right doses, at the right times, under the right conditions.

The launch coincides with the latest research on the use of medications amongst the elderly in the US. According to medical tech firm MediPense, over 55% of seniors are not correctly taking their medications. Their research attributed this to a complex web of reasons including memory failure, physical incapacity, fear of side effects, and a lack of adequate understanding about the purpose of the drug.
However, this incorrect use can have deeply adverse consequences. According to Aging Care, approximately 200,000 older adults are hospitalized annually due to adverse drug reactions. This is a rate almost 6 times worse than in the general population.
As such, Swifthaven Community believes that care and assisted living facilities need to be doing more to assist their residents to maintain the best level of health and wellness possible. Therefore, with their new medication assistance scheme, their trained caregivers will oversee the filling of prescription medications and implement their dosages correctly.
As a residential facility, Swifthaven Community offers the comforts and freedoms of home, with the safety of a supervised medical environment and the sociability of a community filled with like-minded residents with similar life experiences.
Residents at the community can expect spacious and light-filled apartments with various bedroom configurations and with fully equipped kitchenettes. All services are included with the apartment. This means that community members will enjoy three nutritious home-style meals every day, housekeeping, linen services and more.
The community is devoted to residents’ wellness. As such, in addition to facilitating basic daily care and medical essentials, residents are able to enjoy the venue’s quality amenities like the swimming pool, beauty salon and community rec room. The center’s management also encourages residents to take advantage of their many activities and programs, including their movie nights, bingo sessions, craft meets, and guest lectures.
Swifthaven Community is located in Edgerton, Wisconsin. It also services the nearby cities of Janesville, Stoughton, Milton and McFarland. They are passionate about providing the highest level of care, support, and joy to their residents.
A spokesperson for the community said, “The goal is to meet each person’s needs, even as those needs change, maximizing independence for as long as possible. At Swifthaven, we strive to promote independence, preserve dignity and offer choices that lead to happier living.”
