Levels of Care
At Brookdale Austintown, you aren’t just another senior to us. You are a person who deserves to be treated as an individual with specific needs and desires. As a Memory Care resident, this is what you can expect from our type of care.
Personalized Memory Care
Our staff takes a person-centered approach to our Memory Care residents. We view all residents as individuals, and we take time to get to know each one of our seniors — their likes, dislikes, interests, family history, and much more. We believe this personalization allows us to care for our seniors with a gentle hand and kind heart. Something we strive to do everyday.
Our goal is to help residents maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. And we do all of this while respecting our residents and treating them with the upmost dignity. To help our residents be successful, we offer a gentle daily structure where residents enjoy at least six programs daily. The programs can vary but all are designed to provide daily moments of success for our seniors.
A few examples of programs are:
- Dementia-Friendly Menus that provide diverse offerings designed to help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and appealing to the senses.
- Individualized Dining Assistance includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of prompting assistance needed to preserve their use of utensils as long as possible.
- The Supportive Dining Environment, which incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia, this encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, warm, scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience.
