Noord Holland Memory Care
Like every other neighborhood within The Cottages, the Noord Holland memory care household is physically designed to enhance life, independence and peace of mind in a setting that feels like home.
Memory care is a distinct form of long-term skilled nursing that is specifically tailored for residents with mid- to late-stage Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other types of memory problems.
Noord Holland's secure environment means residents have freedom to move about with confidence. They visit neighbors and join together at mealtimes. In the evenings, a group of residents enjoys gathering in the living room and singing hymns they’ve loved for many years.
Each resident has a private suite, fitted with cabinetry and equipped with a full bath and walk-in shower. No two suites are alike because each has been decorated with the keepsakes of a lifetime reflecting the personalities of the people who live there.
It’s a special place, made even more special by the people who work there. Every team member focuses on learning each resident's personal history, interests, and talents. An individual lifestyle plan is then created for each resident, centering on his or her abilities – not their limitations -- along with special attention to their spirit and well-being.
Residents have decisions to make each day, including choices of when and what they want to eat, and how they prefer to spend their day. Family members are always welcome to join in the fun.
A memory care household provides:
- A secure household environment and an enclosed outdoor space.
- Staff trained to assist with cognitive, behavioral, communication, and environmental challenges.
- A calm, relaxed environment designed to reduce stress and anxiety.
- Special activities to assist in maintaining awareness and encourage independence.
- Access to Dakim brain fitness technology targeting all areas of the brain.
- An Alzheimer's support group for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
Specially trained staff
Beyond the professional training required to perform their job, persons working in a memory care household receive specialized training and annual continuing education related to working with individuals in later stages of Alzheimer's disease and Dementia.
Resident-centered care plans
Our team works closely with the resident's physician to develop a customized care plan that meets all of the resident's needs – physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. Our friendly staff, nurses, therapists and aides ensure a safe, homelike environment.
