Specialized Dementia Care
 

The caring staff at “The Terrace”—our specialized memory care unit—are dedicated and trained to address the special needs of our residents with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other memory impairments.

Here, the environment has been designed to reduce stress and confusion. This modified environment makes fewer demands on lost skills and often results in reduced anxiety and greater ability to function on a day-to-day basis—ultimately enhancing the quality of life for the person with impairments.

Our staff receives specialized training to understand the challenges facing an individual with memory impairment.

Support services of The Terrace are created to honor the individual resident and focus on their strengths. These services include:

Maintaining the individual’s daily routine
Encouraging physical activity through walking, sitting exercises or dancing
Guided social interaction with peers, staff and visitors
Assistance to maintain mental functioning through the use of visual and physical prompts and cues
Support to perform as many of the daily tasks as possible, as independently as possible
“Person-centered care” and care-planning which aims to serve the person as an individual rather than focusing on their disease or lost skills
Activities that lead to increased self-worth and create moments of joy
Assistance with personal care including dressing, grooming and bathing
Meal time assistance
Assistance with toileting, including bladder and bowel incontinence management
Support for you, the family care-giver
