The primary mission of the Social Services Department is to ensure the emotional and psychological well being of Fair Acres’ residents.  Social Services is committed to promoting independence and to protecting residents’ inalienable rights, their dignity and right to self-determination.

  • Upon admission to Fair Acres, Social Services will meet with the resident and family members and help ease the adjustment to long-term care.
  • A Social History Report will be completed, which includes such information as work history, past and present activities of interest, family history and resident and family feelings about placement.
  • Social Services is part of an interdisciplinary team that develops goals and a plan of treatment for each resident so that he or she receives the necessary care and services that will help to attain and maintain the highest practical  physical, mental and psychological level of functioning.
  • Families are encouraged to be a part of the care planning process to help provide a more complete picture of the emotional environment of the resident and to ensure all needs are being met. 
  • The Social Services team also includes an onsite Spiritual Coordinator/Chaplain who orchestrates and oversees a full schedule of religious services and is available for personal counseling.
