OUR SERVICES

What We Offer

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM

Medication Monitoring

Residents at Open Arms agree to comply with doctor’s orders and take medication as prescribed. Staff carefully monitor medication compliance. For structure, there are specific times when the residents are expected to take their medications under the observation of staff. All prescribed medications are secured in the staff office and records are kept on a medication administration record.

MEAL PREPARATION

New Life Opportunities

Three healthy, balanced meals are offered seven days a week.  Two snacks are offered daily. Residents are given the opportunity to help prepare and serve their own food. Cooking together is essential to a household.

TRANSPORTATION FOR MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS

Open Arms staff are available if any resident should need a ride to an important Doctor appointment. Staff are also willing to sit in on an appointment if the resident feels it would be helpful.

COMMUNITY INTERACTION

New Life Opportunities

The Activities Program has two main points of focus. The first is to improve the general health and socialization of the residents. The second is to offer a chance for the residents to serve and to give back to the community. Much has been documented about the value of giving and the psychological healing that occurs when people do activities for the good of others. There are many opportunities for the residents at Open Arms to participate in the larger community.

EXPORATION OUTSIDE OF ANCHORAGE

MEMORABLE DESTINATIONS
