NORTH CANYON CARE CENTER

Our Story

NORTH CANYON CARE CENTER: Where the patient is the center of care, not just a patient in our care center. The nurses’ station is in the heart of the building, allowing for a hub where communication can flow readily to build an individualized plan for care. North Canyon is most easily identified by our elk at the entrance, representing the ideals of companionship and group support. “You do not have to do everything alone, help is out there waiting.”

Aquatic Therapy at North Canyon may be provided for appropriate patients as part of a specialized rehabilitation program designed by physical therapists. The warm temperature of the water helps improve circulation and flexibility as well as increase relaxation and reduce pain. In this environment patients are able to improve range of motion, balance, coordination, strength and endurance for an overall improvement in function. Patients with back pain or surgery, joint replacements, decreased strength, chronic pain, balance impairments and endurance limitations may benefit from aquatic therapy.

Committed To Quality

North Canyon offers more than just 24-hour nursing care, we cater to both the physical and emotional health of our residents and patients. Our care teams work together to create personalized treatment plans to help patients through their care journey. We strive to provide industry-leading outcomes through coordination of all aspects of your care.

In-House Dialysis

OUR DIALYSIS SERVICES
Our partner, Anthem Dialysis, aims to provide better, more efficient dialysis to the higher acuity and frailer nursing home patient population. Clinical studies show that nursing home patients who require dialysis historically have less successful outcomes. However, these same clinical studies show that patients who are treated with more frequent home hemodialysis rather than conventional three-day-a-week treatments have achieved superior results.

To ensure the dialysis patients at our care community are receiving the best possible treatments, the specialists at Anthem Dialysis follow a model that provides more frequent home hemodialysis. This model is designed to be on-site at our care community. Avalon support staff will be available to assist the dialysis patients throughout the treatment process.

YOUR TREATMENT PLAN
The Avalon interdisciplinary team works together with Anthem Dialysis to create a plan of care with the goal of achieving the best outcomes possible.

Nephrologist: Oversees the plan of care of the End Stage Renal Disease patient and his or her dialysis treatments.

Licensed Nurse: Carries out the treatment plan and also trains the dialysis technicians to assist with providing patient care. As the patients are being dialyzed, they will be supervised by a licensed nurse and dialysis technician.

Social Worker: Oversees the psychosocial part of the plan of care. Social workers assist with many difficulties that dialysis patients encounter when living with a chronic illness.

Registered Dietitian: Educates the patient on proper diets that are suitable for one living with End Stage Renal Disease.

PATIENT BENEFITS
On-Site home hemodialysis provided by Anthem Dialysis enables individualized treatment options, including more frequent hemodialysis when medically justified. The benefits of more frequent hemodialysis are widely recognized. The slower filtration rates used in more frequent hemodialysis provide a gentler treatment and are associated with lower mortality rates and reduced cardiovascular-related hospitalizations.

When receiving home hemodialysis treatments at our care community, the dialysis patient may show a shorter recovery, increased energy, and better overall health. This helps the patient maintain his or her rehabilitation, medication, meal, and activity schedules. More frequent dialysis therapy has shown to have more positive outcomes such as: lower mortality rates, fewer cardiac-related hospitalizations, improved recovery time (1 hour vs. 8 hours), less cardiac stunning, and a greater appetite, to name a few.
