Memory Support Care is offered at a separate wing known as the Carriage House. The Carriage House offers residents living with memory challenges a safe and comfortable environment. At The Villa, we understand these residents need greater attention and will benefit from a warm and versatile lifestyle, within a protected atmosphere.
Each resident will reside within a private bedroom. A separate secure garden with planting beds gives residents in the neighborhood ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. Décor includes specially designed niches with familiar objects and pictures.
Activities & Engagement
Knowing that senior adults who live with impaired memories can still experience real connections, the Carriage House was designed with life-skills rooms where residents can engage in meaningful activities that connect with their past. It may be something as simple as playing a card game, partaking in monitored activities such as sewing, or gardening in our raised garden beds.
Our caregivers understand the special care requirements of these individuals and encourage them to engage in activities and tasks that contribute to mental stimulation and feelings of acceptance and individual capability.
The Villa offers dedicated memory care plans for residents living with disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia. All staff receive cognitive impairment training as well as additional education about Alzheimer’s and how to help someone with cognitive impairments.
Residents with memory impairment are assessed upon move in and any time there is a change in condition. The assessment is used to develop an Individualized Service Plan. Families can expect to received timely updates and discussions regarding any current or changing conditions for their loved one.
On the fourth Wednesday of every month, the Villa at Suffield Meadows offers a support group for those suffering from Alzheimer’s & Dementia-Related Illnesses. Family members, loved ones, and friends who know someone living with these related illnesses are invited to attend.
