Holistic Healthcare

In the Health and Wellness Center, Country Breeze Farm engages a team of dedicated professionals who provide holistic care for the Farmers. They work closely with staff and caregivers to support healthy functioning in all areas of life and create a physically, emotionally and mentally prosperous community. The Health and Wellness team is in constant communication with Farmers and their families, working proactively to build and sustain the overall health of every Farmer.

Goals of the Health and Wellness Program include:

  • Oversee the vision, dental, medical, therapeutic and mental health needs of each Farmer.

  • Manage, track and facilitate all health-related appointments

  • Provide medical care/consultation including on-site first aid and basic care, making house calls and monitoring living environments.

  • Monitor and coordinate medication administration for each Farmer through a sophisticated, web-based tracking system similar to those used in hospitals.

  • Promote healthy nutrition through collaboration with the Country Breeze Farm master chef and in support of the specific nutritional requirements of the Farmers.

  • Maintain health records and OSHA paperwork.

  • Coordinate with Farmer families on insurance coverage and maintenance.

  • Work with Country Breeze Farm’ benefits coordinator to ensure Farmers have the best coverage available based on their eligibility.

  • Partner with the University of Tennessee Speech Department, whose students provide on-site speech therapy for Farmers.

  • Host outside resources on-site to meet needs in the following areas: Physical Therapy; Mobile Lab; and Portable X-ray.

  • Educate caregivers, staff and Farmers on standards for health and safety practices.

  • Gratefully receive and manage donated health supplies such as first aid items, over-the-counter medicines, and personal hygiene products for Farmers with limited resources.
