The Cottages at University Place – Services
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Our Senior Care activity program is a key component of our gentle care philosophy of emphasizing each resident’s strengths and abilities. We create a personalized activity program designed to provide each resident with a sense of purpose and achievement.
The health and well being of our residents is of special concern to us. Our nursing staff is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week to provide the following services:
- Assistance with activities of daily living, such as grooming, bathing and ambulation
- Assistance with daily meals
- Medication monitoring and assistance
- Diabetic Monitoring
- Incontinence Management
When additional medical services are needed, we work closely with other healthcare providers to meet the needs of our residents within the comfort and familiarity of his or her own bedroom.
If you personally take care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s at home, you know the stress and demands it places on you and your family. If you are ready for a break to renew yourself, call and ask about our short-term Respite Care program.
We encourage families to become involved in the care we provide by visiting often and meeting with staff to discuss their loved one’s personal history, preferences, and special needs.
Family members also often need information and support to understand and cope with the progressive nature of memory disorders. Our trained staff will be there with you on this journey providing advice, consultation and most importantly emotional support. We will also be available to recommend additional educational resources and external support groups if requested.
