Our Assisted Living Residents

Who Are Our Residents?

Our residents are all unique and in their own special way.  No two residents are the same but some general characteristics are seen.  Most of our honored residents are Moderate to Advanced Stages of Short-Term Memory Loss.  They are more confused and are not as ambulatory as a locked Alzheimer’s Unit. About a third of our residents require eating assistance.  Most of our residents require incontinence care.  All of our residents require some level of Dressing, Showering and toileting care.  Since we focus on the Moderate to Advanced Stages of Short-Term Memory Care, residents and families don’t feel bad or guilty when their loved one says or does something silly or does something childish.  We are in it together.
