Working with Experts

An important part of our unique approach  is our partnerships with key professionals in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia care.  Teaming up with these experts ultimately help us to take a different approach to providing care and service for our residents.  It also provides opportunities for our care staff to grow professionally through ongoing education and training.  Some of our primary alliances include:

  • Alzheimer’s Association – Working with the local Alzheimer’s Association chapter, we are teaming up with these professionals to provide ongoing training and education for our care staff about how to provide the best care and support for our residents.
  • Rehabilitation – It is common for seniors to experience physical problems that inhibit their quality of life.  The need for physical, occupational, or speech therapy is very common which is why we encourage on-site therapy services for our residents.  In addition, these professionals will offer guidance, training, and structured programs for our care staff that will ultimately benefit our residents.
  • Medical Director – We have formed an alliance with a local M.D. who is certified with the American Board of Geriatric Medicine. As a geriatric specialist, our Medical Director fully understands the complicated medical issues that are associated with seniors and dementia.  We ensure regular on-site physician services for our residents and provides ongoing support and direction for our nursing staff.

Access to Services

Every resident has the right to have access to whatever services are necessary to meet their changing needs.  Our commitment is to be an advocate and resource for our residents when they have a need or concern in any area of their life.  Our staff can provide recommendations or direction for available services and can assist in coordinating access to these services.
