The following statements represent the philosophies and goals that guide our thinking as we make decisions relative to the care of your loved one. We believe that these guiding principles can help us to achieve our commitment to provide the highest quality care for those with Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias. To insure proper placement, the resident must be fully assessed by their physician as to the diagnosis of dementia and to gain a full and accurate picture of the total needs and level of functioning of the resident.The staff will follow the fundamental therapeutic approach that behavioral problems are often due to underlying causes. It is important, therefore, to take into account the residents' psychological and social history, former lifestyle, and current physical condition in trying to ascertain the root cause of any difficulty.- All staff, including administration and non-direct care staff, will be selected based on their ability to adapt to the special needs of the dementia resident and will be provided initial and ongoing training on Alzheimer's Disease and dementia.- Staffing patterns and assignments should be kept as consistent as possible in order to enable the staff to acquire knowledge of resident behavior and reduce confusion for the resident. Blending of roles and cross-training of all staff members promotes prompt response to resident needs.- Our dementia care facilities will provide ongoing programming and cueing that is appropriate and reaffirming. This active programming is essential to the success of the facilities. We will focus on activities that encourage individuality and which closely approximate home-like activities that residents can take pride in doing and which reinforce past roles.- Our staff will be sensitive to the needs of the resident and their families by providing them the opportunity to input the planning of the residents' care. - We are committed to the healthfulness of the sunshine and free access to the outdoors of the secured courtyards. We believe that getting outside of the building is also important on a frequent basis.- Verbal and non-verbal communications must be carried out in a manner that establishes and maintains a supportive, emotional climate and fosters overall well being for the resident.- Weight gain in the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease or other dementia should not be considered an area of major concern as food is a source of comfort for residents and can greatly reduce anxiety in the dementia resident. As weight loss is often unavoidable in the later stages of the disease, weight reserves are desirable.- Medications used for behavior modification will be kept to a minimum. Medications will be used only to enhance optimal resident functioning, and their continued use will be re-evaluated on a regular basis.- Regular diets of great food will be encouraged for all residents in our facilities. Special therapeutic diets will be used only when clearly clinically necessary and in the least restrictive form. Finger foods that inspire independent eating will be encouraged.- The physical structure should maximize functional abilities, be supportive, promote safety and provide a secure, home-like environment.It is our greatest concern that our residents experience the most joy-filled, enriching and supportive atmosphere possible. To this extent our outstanding staff is skilled, trained and valued.
