Memory Care

Homestead Village Assisted Living offers Memory Care in settings that are tailored to the individual’s cognitive abilities. One of our goals is to place individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia in buildings where they feel at home and comfortable with others residing in that building. Therefore, we have separate buildings for early stage dementia, middle stage dementia, and late stage dementia. Our purpose-designed dementia buildings are staffed and equipped to provide and encourage individuals to remain as independent as possible while continuing to provide choices, preserve dignity, and respect their decision making. Each building has a small resident population consisting of 15-20 private rooms with private baths. Our flexible approach to daily activities contributes to a low stress soothing atmosphere. 

Floor plans available here.

Before moving into Homestead Village, each prospective resident meets our Administrator or Assistant Administrator for a comprehensive assessment in order to determine the correct level of care. This allows Homestead to determine the best level of assistance for their individual needs right from the start. Ongoing evaluations are done by the nursing staff as resident’s needs may change over time.

Transitioning from home to an assisted living facility can exacerbate anxiety, depression, and agitation in individuals with dementia. When the individual is placed in the correct level of care they often require less medication, have fewer safety concerns, and often become very sociable with the other residents in the building.  Residents also have the option of being followed by 1 of 2 geriatric nurse practitioners which allows for convenient in-house maintenance of the disease process and the ability to obtain rapid responses to any acute illness that may occur.
