The heart of Memory Care consists of providing truly person-directed care: to know and work with each resident as an individual, and to provide them with care that’s as unique as they are. Our caring, compassionate staff, first-rate amenities, beautiful environment and welcoming, supportive atmosphere help assure you Cedarhurst is a safe, secure and enriching place to live.
As a Memory Care community, we not only take care of each resident’s needs, we provide important resources to treat memory loss. Only Cedarhurst cares for the memory of each resident with inclusive, custom-tailored programming versus traditional Memory Care. A physician and nurse practitioner see our residents every week and get to know them personally. Our staff is specially trained by a Certified Dementia Practitioner and takes continuing education modules focused on dementia.
Cedarhurst also thoughtfully designs our apartments into neighborhoods with the multiple stages of Memory Care in mind. Our floor plans include common dining areas, outdoor space, clear sightlines, wide pathways and secure entrances to ensure every resident has a safe and enjoyable space to live.
With exceptional staff, amenities, comfort and care, you can rest assured that Cedarhurst provides for all the necessities of Memory Care, and more.
It’s important that together we find the appropriate level of care to best fit your daily life. That fit begins with conducting a series of assessments to ensure you receive the precise level of care you need.
With supportive care, our staff focuses on delivering in-person reminders to complete daily tasks, such as brushing teeth. These brief, friendly interactions don’t include supervision or hands-on assistance. This minimal level of care is designed to ensure regular, healthy habits are maintained, not overlooked.
This moderate level of care is more attentive and supervisory. It includes in-person reminders such as those included in our supportive care, plus observation from a staff member to ensure daily tasks are completed. Some respectful, one-on-one assistance is also offered when requested or when an activity is seen to be challenging.
This maximum level of care puts the responsibility of daily tasks in the hands of a trained, encouraging staff member. They will offer any help that is needed to maintain healthy habits from head to toe. Delivery of this care is highly responsive and sensitive to the importance of independence, with support when a resident has the desire to perform tasks on their own.
When you live at Cedarhurst, we’ll make a medication management recommendation as part of your levels of care assessment.
