A wing of Woodbine is dedicated to meeting the unique needs and challenges associated with caring for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments. The primary exit from this area is passcode protected and hallway exits feature the Wander Guard protection system.
Our goals are to offer the comfortable familiarity and safety of a home-like environment and encourage interaction with staff and other residents through a variety of social and therapeutic activities to keep them engaged and entertained. Staff members assigned to the memory care area are trained to interact positively with residents whether their impairments are limited or profound.
Families are encouraged to place photographs and mementoes in the display boxes outside each resident’s room to make others aware of the person’s history, significant life events and favorite pastimes. The better we know memory care residents, the better we can care for them.
