During the spring of 2014, two health professionals with common concerns and dedication agreed to bring to reality this project that is now Casa Cieneguita, an Assisted Living Facility in San Miguel de Allende, Gto. Mexico. They are:
Mr. Pierre Lepoureau, with 40 years’ experience as a hospital administrator at Jackson Memorial Hospital and Community Hospital of South Broward in Miami, Florida, among others, and specialized medical centers in HMO/PPO concepts plus various nursing homes in the United States.
Dr. José (Pepe) Valencia geriatric medical doctor, gerontologist, holistic, integrative, thanatology and hospice doctor in Mexico with over 38 years of experience serving the elderly and creator of many disciplines aimed at improving their quality and dignity of life.
Of course, we are trained to help patients with this type of ailments plus those that suffer from diseases called “dementia”, diabetes, cancer , multiple sclerosis in an assisted living setting.
Visiting hours are from 10:30 to 17:30. We recommend that you call in advance so we can prepare the resident.
Definitely, yes! It is an excellent idea that the family participates in the activities as part of our program. There are some activities that will be developed in an interactive way between the family members and our residents. For example, assisting them during their feeding time produces very positive results for the resident.
Yes, we are trained to provide you palliative and thanatology attention to assist the family in the process so that their final moments are in peace and harmony for all concerned after closing circles of any unfinished business, if any, and forgiveness takes place, if necessary.
Yes, since our attending geriatric medical doctor is available 24 hours a day and our personnel is trained to provide immediate attention, we are prepared to proceed with specific and established protocols including calling an ambulance and/or to transfer the resident to a hospital according to established and specific instructions given by the family at the moment of their admission to Casa Cieneguita.
