Seniors facing Alzheimer’s and dementia need an atmosphere they can feel comfortable and at ease in, but one that also keeps them out of harm’s way. Because they are experiencing so much cognitive uncertainty, it’s important to have a living space that appears familiar to them. All of Villa’s Healthcare memory care buildings are designed with this in mind. Community features include easy-to-navigate floor plans, spacious accommodations, and wall colors and floor patterns that are the most comforting to seniors. Villa Healthcare believes that you heal best when you are comfortable, our food, décor, lighting and amenities all promote tranquility.
One of the best features about Villa Healthcare memory care program is the dedicated staff who passionately serve seniors daily and help make the environment a caring, loving and supportive place. Villa Healthcare invests in their staff by offering many employee-focused programs. Villa’s staff, in turn, treats residents with the same care. They couple clinical expertise with a willingness to exceed expectations, every time. As the company’s CEO, Mark Berger carefully selects all of his staff members and trains them on how to properly care for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The Villa Healthcare staff believes that no one should be defined by the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Maintaining identity and a strong sense of self-comes from living a life filled with meaning and purpose and contributions, and having dementia shouldn’t change that. Preservation of dignity and maintaining a person’s skills and interests is a critical element of living an optimum life.
