We cover all prescription medications (not to exceed $100.00 after reembursement from medicare and prescription insurance, if applicable), over-the-counter medication and vitamins are included in the monthly cost.
In the later stages of Alzheimer’s/ Dementia we have found that LESS stimulation is needed NOT more. It is the #1 reason why we only have three to six residents per home. In a small setting, making it possible to devote time for reminiscing, music therapy, cooking, walks or just to hold hands through-out the whole day not just at artificially scheduled times.
All appointments for hair, nail, massage therapy are included in your monthly cost.
We have no set hours to be up and eating breakfast. Each breakfast is made individually. With our 100 percent Person Direct Care Approach, everyone is treated individually not as a group. We always schedule around their needs NOT around ours!
We know how difficult and emotionally painful it can be for someone to be uprooted from their environment and confronted with sharing a room with a stranger -- our rooms are private. To help ease the transition, we ask that the family provide familiar furniture and bedding along with pictures, lamps, etc.
