For residents with Alzheimer’s and other related forms of dementia, our Connections program offers a custom-designed, intimate, family-oriented unit with 16 private suites. In this secure setting, we provide individualized care, focusing on the unique needs of seniors progressing through various stages of dementia.
Connections is a very special unit and one of the best choices for memory-impaired seniors. From the superior quality of care and its exceptional design, to the warmth of the environment and experience of our staff, Connections recognizes the importance of each individual and focuses on helping them achieve new successes. We provide ongoing support for residents and their families, and encourage family and friends to visit any time.
Our Connections unit features an outdoor enclosed area with a spacious patio and a vegetable garden, which provides residents with relaxing and fulfilling experiences. Our tranquil surroundings also include a large koi pond, many species of birds, white tail deer and wild turkeys, all helping residents to stay connected to nature.
Higher nursing ratios per resident plus a specially trained activities staff ensure that every individual is getting the highest level of care. Residents enjoy a variety of custom-designed activities within the unit, as well as events, trips and entertainment integrated within the larger community.
The professionally designed living space in Connections consists of an elegant dining room, state-of-the-art kitchen, spacious and bright activity area, plus a cozy living room. Colors and fabrics are picked specifically to enhance the positive atmosphere of the unit. All doors are secured and alarmed, and each suite is equipped with an emergency call bell system.
The nursing staff closely monitors the health and safety of each resident. Complete monthly Wellness Assessments are performed to guide the development of individualized care plans. A Physician and a Nurse Practitioner are available for consultations, and the services of a Registered Dietitian and a Registered Pharmacist are utilized routinely to ensure that all clinical goals are met most efficiently and expeditiously. On-site Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists are also available to assist with safety and mobility.
