BJC employs more than 50 trained direct care staff who serve as teachers to our men, assisting them in programs to help them fulfill their highest potential in life skills and monitor the men’s progress throughout the course of each day.
A comprehensive Health Care Program is provided to all residents at Brother James Court. Each resident has access to a personal care physician who participates as an integral member of the interdisciplinary care team.
BJC encourages our residents to achieve the highest level of independence possible. We attain these goals through carefully crafted programming and a consistent, realistic approach.
Certified Physical and Occupational therapists, as well as a Speech and Language Pathologist, provide the needed exercises and activities required to maintain or enhance our residents’ physical abilities and functional levels.
Brother James Court contracts with Memorial Medical Center to provide in-house Hospice services for our residents who may require “end-of-life” special needs. A resident room is set up across from the nurses’ station and is furnished to provide “comfort care” for the resident and his family/guardian during this special time.
All of our residents attend day training in some form, whether it’s a workshop or a community-based position. Our men have the opportunity to learn about a working environment and work ethic that reinforces our goals outside the facility.
