Caring. Community. Quality.
Many of our adult clients have dementia or Alzeimer’s Disease, have suffered a stroke, or are simply isolated during the day. Each has a special place in our house, and is treated with love and respect. Our staff ratio of 1:6 enables us to give each individual the emotional, cognitive, physical and social stimulation needed to encourage independence and prevent premature placement in long-term care facilities. We also give their caregivers a much-needed respite. This gives them time to themselves, allows them to continue working, and reduces the stress that comes from taking care of an aging or disabled loved one.
Quality Programs for Our Clients
Neighborhood House is a social rehabilitative program, which utilizes recreational and therapeutic activities to maintain physical, mental and social skills as well as the highest possible level of independence. Some of our structured activities include:
Therapeutic consultant-based art, music and movement activities
Community outings to local attractions
Supervised and guided outdoor walks on and off our beautiful property
Cognition and reminiscence activities
Social encouragement with large and small groups
Intergenerational activities with our preschool children
Other benefits we provide:
Safe, homelike setting with individual, attentive and compassionate care
Nutritious meals and snacks that meet Recommended Dietary Allowance requirements
Referrals to resources within the community
Time spent with nursing and social work students
Door-to-door transportation available (fees based on a client’s ability to pay)
