Get plenty of sleep, wholesome foods and drinks. Stay away from people who are ill and wash your hands well
before eating to avoid getting sick before surgery. A cold or cold sores around the mouth are reasons to cancel jaw surgery.
You can expect emotions and moods may be affected by
some of the post-operative medications and recovery circumstances. We are here to help you through possible stressful interactions
between family members. We prefer that you rely on us to orchestrate the protocol of calming down irritated patients rather
than letting it potentially escalate on your own. We’ve had much experience with circumstances such as these and great
success with implementing our calming protocol. Families may want to employ our combination rate in certain situations. This
is described in the Admission Form.
The Peppers Estate is operated in an open family manner. The property owner and administrator, David
Sullins, lives on the property as does his full time staff, Ray ( driver extraordinaire ) and Nida (care provider extraordinaire).
Some patients/families prefer more privacy. Please inquire about our private apartment availability.
This furnished 2 bedroom suite has a private kitchen, bath and living room, yet opens to the main house so we can still ‘back
you up’ with services and care giving. Patients/companions are encouraged to freely visit throughout the house. Meeting
in the kitchen in robes is not uncommon. If this environment may not be comfortable for either you or your companion, and
the private apartment is not available, you might consider a Motel stay instead, which has even more privacy and control
that some seek.
The mansion is furnished for adults. There are no provisions for children to entertain them or ensure
their safety. Please do not bring children to the Peppers Estate as day guests either, as there are other recovering
patients and our seniors in this family style atmosphere, who require a calm and quiet atmosphere. Thank you for understanding.
We look forward to helping you through your recovery in your “Home away from home”.
