Assisted Living Service Plans
Orangeburg Manor provides what we call our "Level Care Plan." We recognize that our residents require different degrees of care based upon their individual needs and desires — and that those needs and desires will change over time. Therefore, our "age in place" care system is designed for maximum flexibility to accommodate the unique attributes and abilities of each resident.
Moving residents from one residence to another is often traumatic and not desirable, so our "Level Care Plan" allows for our residents to "age in place" as their physical and mental acuity increases. While each resident receives individualized care, we do not separate our higher functioning residents from our lower functioning residents; so as residents' acuity increases, their transition is a gentle and graceful one.
We encourage all of our residents to independently perform as many daily tasks as they are able. Our staff pays close attention and fills in with assistance when needed. We also review the established care plan for each resident at regular intervals with the input of the resident, family members and Orangeburg Manor staff to ensure the best care plan for each resident is always in effect.
Level I Care Plan
Residents under the Level I Care Plan are capable of performing most of their everyday tasks with minimal to no assistance. Under most circumstances, Level I residents generally seek/need assistance with the more physically or mentally taxing undertakings, such as bathing, housekeeping, laundry and medication administration.
Level II Care Plan
In addition to Level I Care, residents on the Level II Care Plan will receive more extended assistance, often associated with the early stages of dementia, such as:
- Increased housekeeping and laundry service
- Meal reminders
- Incontinence care
- Oxygen administration
- A more involved medication regimen
- Redirecting behavior
Level III Care Plan
Level III residents require advanced assistance where more specialized help is needed in all areas of personal care. This plan may also include strict dietary supervision due to diabetes, kidney failure, etc. Level III residents may require closer supervision and staff intervention due to behavioral conditions commonly connected with the later stages of dementia.
Level IV Care Plan
This care plan is most appropriate for residents requiring hospice care, which includes full assistance with bathing, personal hygiene, bladder/bowel management and ambulation. Residents utilizing this specific plan may require the aid of two Personal Care Attendants.

As our parents and loved ones grow older the time will come when we have to consider the options available and what's in their best interest. While some people will opt for care in a senior living facility, others will take on the responsibility of acting as the primary caregiver for their loved one. We are here to help ease the assessment process and to provide you with the resources needed to make the decision best for your loved one.

Health Care Resources
Perhaps the most significant concern as we age is our health and accessibility to health care. As we grow older it's important to concentrate on quality of life. Seniors may find themselves asking, what simple exercises can I do to live a healthier life? What are some healthy meals I can prepare for myself? Additionally, you may have questions about Medicare, health insurance, and disease education. We have complied a wealth of health care resources for your convenience.
