The Magic Touch Residential Care Facility for the Elderly has been going strong since its grand opening in 2005. It is an elderly care facility that is located in a moderate income neighborhood, and their prices are sensible to better accommodate the community. The facility has two acres of land with an elegant country setting.  It contains an enchanting courtyard with many tropical plants, beautiful flowers, and a gazebo.  It is licensed for six residents, and the rooms are private.  There are special pathways for the elderly to walk through and plenty of space for them to occupy. "It's a loving Christian home," says Ms. Louise Tucker, the LVN Administrator. She does hope to expand and open up a second house for the elderly in the near future.

The facility's staff places high value on the quality and care that they provide for their residents.  Ms. Tucker explains, "We cater to our residents with specialized care."  She has had specialized training in many areas of the nursing field, and the manager of the facility has over ten years of experience. In fact, "The Magic Touch" has a "direct care professional staff," which validates that their staff members are more than just caregivers, but a team with lots of experience and training, integrity, morale, and quality.  Ms. Tucker explains that they have received the maximum training available through state requirements.  Their training was directed through The Community Residential Care Association, and this association was approved nationwide to have the best training. 

"A lot of places have substandard services because their caregivers are not trained properly...we have had the maximum training," says Ms. Tucker when asked about her residential care facility for the elderly.  Ms. Tucker has been working at "The Magic Touch" facility for approximately two years now. With more than 25 years of experience in the nursing field, she retired from the Veterans Administration Medical Center in 1995, and opened up the residential care facility. She wanted to provide a good home for the elderly and make a positive impact in their lives.  She admits to observing elderly care centers "that were not so wonderful" to their residents; therefore, she decided to make a difference and run her own elderly care center the right way. 

The residents are extremely happy at the facility, and the staff has done an excellent job in maintaining trust with the residents' families.  They strongly support family involvement by allowing families to give their input, ideas, and suggestions on how to further better the home.   The staff does their best to communicate with the families often, and invite them to be a part of the facility's care plan. They also promote family participation by offering Sunday brunches for the residents' families.  This is an opportunity for the families to mingle, interact, and spend time with their loved ones.  Ms. Tucker explained that these family events are vital to the progress of the residents because they begin to feel lonely and unwanted. "They (the families) are a part of our team," says Ms. Tucker.

Nevertheless, it is safe to say that "The Magic Touch" residential care facility is an exemplary role model for other elderly care facilities to follow. The devoted staff members place high importance on the satisfaction of their residents.  They spend quality time with their residents, provide great food, incorporate one on one care, and strive to maintain a family oriented environment. 

"We give them (the elderly) our very best because they really deserve it...I put my heart and soul into it," says Ms. Tucker.
