Care Philosophy

Home 2 Stay

One of our proudest achievements as an MBK Senior Living community is maintaining rehospitalization rates that are considerably lower than the national average. At Island House Assisted Living, understand the effects rehospitalizations can have on residents as well as their families. Residents can suffer emotional, physical, and social consequences. To help us avoid preventable hospital stays, we created our Home 2 Stay program. Utilizing a person-centered approach, our Mercer Island, WA, team establishes relationships with each of our Assisted Living and Independent Living residents. In addition to understanding the health history of each resident, our team members get to know our residents on an individual level. By relying upon those relationships and closely monitoring for any changes in health or behavior, our care teams create a supportive environment with significantly reduced rehospitalization rates. As an added convenience, we have a registered nurse consultant available 24/7 to help us make appropriate care decisions.
