Providing Advances In Care
We strive to help those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease maintain a functional lifestyle and provide activities and group programs to keep residents active. We also support residents in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease by providing a quiet, specialty care unit that features advanced nursing and support. Our activity aides closely assist these residents with day-to-day activities so they can still participate in programs and maintain cognitive functionality.
Focused On The Individual
Our Alzheimer’s unit in the Bedford location provides advanced methods in Alzheimer’s care. We are on the cutting edge of Alzheimer’s treatment by creating an environment that focuses on individuals and their stage in the disease process.
Our cognitive development areas are used to help trigger memories and keep patients active and interested. The areas are each targeted to a different activity, so there is something of interest for everyone.
We understand that wandering can be one of the biggest challenges in the disease process, so along with the various development areas, a walking path has been created for our residents to have a secure environment in which they can leisurely walk with supervision.
We also know the demands of caring for an elderly family member at home can be challenging. We provide an adult day care program in Bloomington and an adult day and night program in Bedford as temporary relief for those families who care for their loved one at home. These programs are offered any time to allow family members a small break to recharge. During the day- and night- care stays, medications and supplies will be distributed by our staff at the family’s direction, and meals can be provided at an additional cost.
As part of our effort to educate our community, we host expert Alzheimer’s speakers at our facility in Bedford. They speak on the disease process and offer information to the community and families of those affected by Alzheimer’s. These presentations are free and open to the public.
