Nestled in the heart of historic Downtown Chambersburg, the Quarters at the Shook offers Personal Care in a relaxed atmosphere located near retailers, eateries, physicians’ offices and medical centers. Whether its reading in the courtyard, observing the aviary in the lounge, or surfing the internet in the Activities Room, there are plenty of spaces in which residents can feel at home. Nowhere is this homelike atmosphere more evident than in our intimate accommodations. Residents may choose from three styles of semi-furnished private rooms on one of three levels. From a standard floor plan to that of a deluxe suite, there is a room type to fit almost everyone’s preferences. With only 45 beds, the Quarters at the Shook is analogous to the small, close-knit communities of our youth. Meals are served in a dining room complete with a steam table and “restaurant style” point-of-service. There is even an in-house Beauty Salon & Barber Shop staffed by a licensed beautician.
The Quarters at the Shook provides twenty-four hour supportive services to those desiring to continue living an active lifestyle but need gentle support with their Activities of Daily Living. Examples include assistance with medication administration and bathing and dressing. Whether it’s for long-term placement or a short-term stay, the Quarters at the Shook can accommodate almost everyone’s needs. Long-term placement is an option for those wishing to downsize to apartment-style living in the security of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), while short-term placement is available to seasonal consumers or simply to give in-home caregivers a break. Regardless of the type of stay needed, residents may take advantage of a variety of services to enable them to achieve their highest practicable level of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
The Quarters at the Shook takes a holistic, person-in-environment approach to resident care. As a result, residents’ receive comprehensive, individualized Support Plans developed by our Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) in conjunction with them and their families. The IDT consists of a resident’s family physician, a Licensed Practical Nurse, a Physical Therapist, an Occupational Therapist, a Speech Therapist, a Therapeutic Recreational Specialist, a Registered Dietitian, and a Chaplain. Off-site specialists, optometrists, dentists, and psychiatrists are consulted as needed. Transportation to and from medical appointments is provided free of charge within a ten mile radius of the facility.
The Support Plan developed by the IDT is carried out on a day-to-day basis by a team of caring professionals. At the core of this team is our nursing staff. Comprised of Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Nurse Aides, and Personal Care Attendants, our nursing staff offers an exceptional combination of skill and genuine compassion. Because the Quarters at the Shook staffing ratios exceed the Department of Human Services’ requirements, nursing staff have an opportunity to develop a rapport with the residents and anticipate their needs. To enable residents to spend their time pursing leisure activities, housekeeping and laundry services are also available. And, with a Skilled Nursing Facility on campus, the Quarters at the Shook provides peace of mind to residents and their families alike. This security is available to residents at a competitive monthly rent with no entrance or maintenance fees! The Quarters at the Shook not only provides residents with a private room, it offers them an affordable lifestyle!!
