The Winchester Terrace Pathways Memory Care Facility is a unique and personalized program dedicated to serving persons with Alzheimer’s disease, dementias and related memory impairments.
Residents our memory care facility need help with medications, bathing, grooming eating dressing and other daily tasks. In addition, Memory care provides intensive, long-term medical care to seniors with serious health and dementia conditions in a fully-staffed and monitored transitional facility separate from the Alzheimer’s unit.
Alzheimer’s disease is a specific form of dementia. As Alzheimer’s disease or dementia progresses, the level of care and assistance a person requires increases. While many families prefer to keep their loved ones home for as long as possible, a person who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer’s will eventually require 24-hour supervised care in catered settings. So, an Alzheimer’s patient’s living environment must have secured areas to prevent wandering, a common symptom of the disease.
Pathways Memory Care staff understand how memory impairments may impact everyday life and disrupt even the simplest of routines. We are passionate about making a difference in the lives of individuals impacted by a dementia diagnosis such as Alzheimer’s or a memory disorder. So, our physical environment is designed to engage individuals, offering activities to enhance one’s motor skills and memory.
Staff nurture residents by creating comfortable and familiar surroundings and eliminating unsettling stimuli. Specialized programs assist each resident to have success in their days as it is important for individuals to thrive and feel worthy.
Our expertise, combined with active family support and open communication, can make a difference. We are dedicated to promoting dignity within an atmosphere of warmth, meaningful activities, and a sense of community. We serve the families of our residents as well – giving them peace of mind that comes from knowing their loved one is well cared for. Whether you’re a son or daughter, husband or wife, you can rest assured that when you can’t be there, we are.
