Gables on the Pond residents enjoy the security of first-class, 24-hour support, seven days a week by our Registered Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants. We are fully prepared to manage the use of oxygen and other special equipment associated to meet our residents’ needs.
Residents are responsible for purchasing their own medications. All medications are confirmed upon delivery and placed in locked storage for distribution by our staff. This procedure for handling medicines exceeds Wisconsin regulations for Community Based Residential Facilities and assures that all medicines are correctly dispensed as prescribed by each resident’s physician.
In some cases, with approval of the physician, our residents may handle their own medications. We keep records and make sure that all residents take their medicines as prescribed. Our Registered Nurses keep complete medical records on each resident. These records are available to the physician upon request.
Non-Emergency Medical Care
We help our residents make regular visits to their doctors, dentists, podiatrists, and other medical specialists. For a small fee, a handicapped-accessible van and driver can transport residents to their local medical visits. Gables also has an On-Call Physician available to treat residents upon request without ever leaving the comfort of their own living space. Residents may keep their primary physician, but have another option when just not feeling up to leaving the building.
Other Medical Specialists
Gables has a Podiatrist, Dental Hygienist, and Behavioral Health Specialist available for in-house, professional services as well. In addition, Gables can arrange on-site therapy by Mueller Therapy of Random Lake, with a treatment room available right in the building.
If a resident becomes ill, or requires a higher level of medical assistance, the Registered Nurse will take immediate appropriate action. If the need for additional care occurs at night, our entire staff of Certified Caregivers is prepared to act immediately. Three full-service hospitals are within 20 minutes of Random Lake. Emergency ambulance service is available through the Random Lake Fire Department.
