The ARC employs an licensed and trained Activity Director trained in providing programs for Alzheimer's residents.
We offer diverse and individualized activities programs geared to those with Alzheimer's disease. Individual activity care plans are created for each resident based on individual needs and abilities.
Activity programs range from one-on-one sensory stimulation to outings. All of our residents are involved in an activity program that has been developed for each of them related to their individualized activity assessment. Based upon each assessment, individual activities are needed to enhance and maintain mental awareness.
The ARC strives to provide a home-like atmosphere for all residents.
We offer cozy living rooms, pleasurable dining rooms, private and semi-private bedrooms. You are welcome to bring in your own familiar furnishings.
We have a large, open sitting area, TV room, offer barber and beauty shop services, activity room and an enclosed, secure courtyard where residents can enjoy being outside and still remain safe.
These accommodations allow the residents to maintain their independence while remaining in a safe environment.
The ARC offers a pharmacy program that delivers all medications directly to the facility on a daily basis. This ensures immediate and accurate dispensing of resident medications. This service also provides a Pharmacist that comes to the facility to review medications, their interactions and physician orders.
This gerontological medication review helps us ensure that residents are not overmedicated and therefore not lethargic or drowsy throughout the day. Our residents are on appropriate medications, but are not overly sedated.
The ARC offers Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy to enhance the well-being of our residents. These services are offered in the facility so the resident does not have to go out of their secure environment.
The ARC also offers mental health services through ACT. Through this service, appropriate mental health providers come into the facility, seeing the resident in their home environment, and help meet any mental health needs a resident may have.
The ARC has a specialized feeding program for residents who require assistance or prompting with eating. We have a feeding room set up for this program that provides a quiet, yet pleasant environment for meals. Our staff has been trained in feeding techniques. Through this program we help our residents maintain and usually gain a little weight. This is very important in the care of Alzheimer's residents because weight loss can be a major factor.
Transportation to doctor's appointments and other health care appointments is provided by the facility.
Our staff stays with residents during their appointments to provide continued safety and to communicate with health care professionals, maintaining the ability for us to provide the best care possible.
The ARC provides laundry services for all residents which includes personal clothing and all linens.
We provide linens, but you are welcome to bring your own to more personalize your room. Laundry services come with no extra charge and is up to the family's discretion.
