Focus has a dedicated Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program that provides a safe and secure environment for those individuals suffering mental decline. This program is housed on a separate floor to maximize safety, while providing a warm, nurturing living environment for these special residents. Residents on this floor have their own separate dining room to facilitate familiarity as well as keep them safe on their own secured floor.
Our program is designed to provide these residents with a purposeful, stimulating day in a monitored and secure environment. Residents are frequently brought to one of Focus's enclosed courtyards to enjoy fresh air while also remaining safe in an enclosed environment. To foster socialization and mental stimulation, residents are treated to barbecues and other social activities and games in this courtyard.
Separate activities are designed for these residents that are specifically geared to stimulate the mind and the memory. Planned outings outside of the facility are structured in smaller groups to allow staff to keep a closer watch on these residents. Our staff is familiar with the additional challenges facing an Alzheimer or dementia resident and consult often with physicians in regard to medication and/or behavioral problems. If needed, staff members are available to assist a resident with feeding and/or personal care.
