There is a world of potential within every individual at Cedarhurst. Each day is an opportunity for our residents to have an amazing experience with the community around them. The key for our Memory Care is uncovering each of our resident’s unique capabilities, and working with them daily to support their best life.
Our highly-trained staff employs a technique called Person-Centered Care. It takes a personalized, scientific, and comprehensive approach to understanding our residents. We start by developing a full profile of each resident that includes his or her history, family background, dining preferences, sleeping, and activity periods throughout the day. By building relationships with each resident we are able to use our training to assess his or her abilities. Together, our residents and our staff come to recognize the way to enhance the value in an individual’s daily-life. We’re able to provide true person-centered care, where a resident is encouraged to use every ounce of his or her independence as long as possible.
We also integrate on-site therapy into our residents’ lives. If our profile and personalized knowledge of a resident leads us to identify a need for speech, occupational, or physical therapy, we’ll find a way to integrate those support systems into someone’s day. Therapy can be delivered as a part of other community activities or customized for one-on-one engagement and interaction. We also offer other forms of therapies including: Music & Memory, Ageless Grace and Pet Therapy.
The fact of the matter is that this approach to care takes more time, energy, patience and focus than what one might find in a more traditional assisted living or nursing home setting. We wholeheartedly believe that this method is the best way to enhance our residents’ lives, as Person-Centered care honors the dignity of the individuals we serve.
Cedarhurst Specialized Services
Cedarhurst embraces a resident’s perspective. This makes it an uplifting, protective place that bends to the individual needs of every life it shelters. Personal history and preferences are respected, facilities are thoughtfully furnished, meals and activities are daily highlights, and care services are intelligently integrated.
The care and support provided to each resident is as unique as his/her own preferences and needs. Every new day at Cedarhurst is shaped by both resident and family feedback.
Our team of staff members are trained through a specialized program with the Alzheimer’s Association as well as trained for our Music and Memory Therapy program and our Ageless Grace exercise program.
We believe in providing healthy, seasonal and freshly prepared meals, served by people who love our residents, and shared with dear friends. Creating a great dining experience is extremely important to us and we work hard to exceed our residents’ expectations.
Housekeeping & Maintenance
For many of our residents, the greatest relief of living at Cedarhurst is no longer having to worry about cleaning or maintaining their homes. We employ a trustworthy staff of professionals to handle all of the “chores” that took time from life – before Cedarhurst.
Activities & Travel
Outings are important, and we believe in helping our residents stay connected to their community. Our activity schedule will always include shopping trips, recreational outings and scheduled trips to medical appointments.
You will never feel alone because assistance is always just a call away. Our team of caregivers provides medication reminders, as well as aide with bathing, dressing, walking, and personal care. You’ll form new friendships at Cedarhurst, some of which will be with our outstanding and always-available team.
