Since we offer two levels of care, Assisted Living and Memory care (Alzheimer’s and Dementia care), we are able to continue serving you if your needs change during your stay with us. Here’s a short description about how we approach Assisted Living and Memory Care:
Our staff plays a huge role in successfully delivering quality care to seniors. We are very selective about the individuals who join our staff, and we train them on the proper way to address the social, mental, physical, and cultural needs of our residents.
We are a small, cozy community with 50 units for assisted living and memory care or Alzheimer’s residents. There are different apartment styles that you can choose from. We have a small or large studio option, as well as one-bedroom apartments. All of our apartments can be private rooms or friendship suites. Some of the features included in our apartments are large closet space, a walk-in shower, individual heating and air conditioning units, and private bath.
Our community is on one level, which allows our residents with limited mobility to move around with ease. We have a very large living area with a fireplace and piano for socializing and relaxing with other residents and their families. We have a spa, beauty shop, well-equipped physical therapy room and an inner-courtyard with an enclosed patio. Our large library is well stocked with books, puzzles, and a computer with internet access. Our memory care neighborhood has secured doors and a large enclosed patio for seniors to enjoy.
Our activities and social programs are developed with our residents’ in mind. We gladly accept our seniors’ input so we provide activities that are specific to them. Our goal for the activities program is to provide stimulating and enriching options for our residents. Some activities might include daily exercises, games, crafts, art classes, current events, church services and bible studies, sing alongs and live musical entertainment There are also physical sport activities such as corn hole, ice cream socials, and a happy hour on Fridays with appetizers. We have special holiday meals for the residents and their families, and other entertainment programs monthly. We also enjoy taking our residents to planned outdoor excursions in the local community each month.
Our dining program resembles what you’d experience at a fine restaurant. Seniors are served three homemade meals each day in our beautiful dining room. Seniors also enjoy drinks and snacks throughout the day. We try to make every dinning experience special for our residents. But we do have extra special dinners for holidays, luaus, cookouts, Christmas and other parties.
At our community, we can offer you or your loved one skilled Assisted Living or Memory Care. With each level of care, our staff is dedicated to supporting and caring for the individual’s needs. Whatever those may be.
Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. But even with that little bit of support, you still want to maintain a level of independence. That’s where our staff can provide the right balance of care.
Our community provides care that combines independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. It’s all tailored to fit you and your needs. We work with each of our residents, understanding their needs first and then crafting together a plan that fits their situation. You only pay for the services that you need.
We also monitor your situation and needs during your stay, and can easily adjust plans at any time. But our goal is to provide you with an individualized experience, and make you feel like you have a partner with us. Our residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here for them, in whatever way they need.
For our Memory Care, we strive to help maintain residents’ abilities and encourage their current skills. We believe that each individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and you’ll see that our staff strives to do that every day.
We have a state-of-the-art approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia care, which has been perfected throughout the years. This approach is based on the Clare Bridge concept that utilizes the latest research and innovations to deliver quality Memory Care to seniors. We focus on caring for the individual — working to encourage feelings of belonging, a sense of self, purpose and fulfillment.
From the type of dining we offer to the activities available, we work to engage residents’ mental functions, encourage them to participate in purposeful activities, and involve them in many physical programs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our seniors to feel a sense of meaning every day.
After undergoing specific training, our staff gently assists residents with daily programs that are designed to maintain a resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Programs may include a “Morning Mental Workout” where residents might enjoy brain-stimulating games or discussions, and a Person-Centered Program, which may honor a resident’s past interests and involvements.
