Country Comforts is owned and operated by Mim Jacobson, a registered nurse with extensive professional experience ranging from emergency rooms to nursing homes, from clinics to hospice care, from teaching nursing students to assisting in university research programs.
Building on this wide-ranging nursing experience, Mim has developed a new model for providing assisted living services: "Assisted Living FAMILY-STYLE." Mim provides highly specialized care for two individuals in her home. With a two-to-one resident to caregiver ratio, each resident receives a virtually unheard-of level of attention.
When an individual first comes to Country Comforts, Mim spends a lot of time talking with the new resident, their family, and their doctors. She learns as much as she can about the person's physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs, and works together with the person and their family, their doctors, and other significant people in their life to provide an environment and the appropriate care to enable the person to live the most fulfilling life possible for as long as possible.
In most cases, residents choose to stay at Country Comforts till the very end of their days, which may be years or maybe just a few days. When appropriate, a hospice organization becomes involved to assist in the coordination of end-of-life issues.
