Sunset Manor uses a Unit Dose Medication System in dispensing medications. The resident may purchase medications from the pharmacy of their choice, provided the medications are delivered to the facility packaged to comply with the Unit Dose System. The resident, resident’s family, or the pharmacy must assume the responsibility for delivery of the medications. The facility will cooperate in ordering and administering VA and AARP provided medications.
The tobacco-free policy was initiated January 1, 2007. A few residents who made their home at Sunset Manor before that date may continue to smoke in restricted areas outside the building. Smoking is strictly prohibited to subsequent admissions.
Laundry - Emphasis is placed on the appearance of our residents. It is important to residents, family, and staff that each resident is clean, comfortable, and well-dressed. Provision of clothing is the responsibility of the resident and/or the resident’s representative. Specific clothing recommendations are provided during the application process.
A written inventory of the resident’s personal possessions, signed by the resident or the resident’s legal representative shall be completed at the time of admission and updated at least annually.
