Welcome to CountryHouse – Memory Care Resident Living

Life is a journey—and everyone’s journey takes him or her through different twists and turns. As we get older, some of us may face struggles with memory loss or other symptoms of dementia. This does not mean the journey is over, or that joy and pleasure become unattainable. It just means a little extra help is needed. At CountryHouse, we provide that help, and we ensure that those who are journeying with dementia still have ample opportunity to lead rich, fulfilling lives filled with happiness.

CountryHouse is a memory care residence. We use that word residence purposefully, because we truly want everyone to feel at home here. Our philosophy hinges on a complete rejection of institutional trappings; as such, we do not use signage, lunch trays, scrubs or anything else that might make CountryHouse feel like a nursing home or a hospital. It is neither of these things; to those who stay here, it is home. All residents are invited to bring their own furniture, and we get to know their names, stories, likes and passions to engage them and truly integrate them into life at CountryHouse.

Of course, we do not only provide services to residents. In a very real way, CountryHouse provides meaningful service to caregivers and family members, providing them with relief and with peace of mind. When you bring your parent or relative to CountryHouse, you can rest assured that he or she will be cared for with the utmost compassion, knowledge, and professionalism.

Why Choose CountryHouse as Your Loved One's Trusted Memory Care Home

Our Services

The services we provide at CountryHouse meet all of our residents’ needs, including 24-hour care, home-cooked meals, medical supervision, and, when necessary, help with bathing and dressing. Medical care is always available, and is offered as discreetly as possible, without institutional language ever being used.


Our signature LifeCycles wellness program incorporates daily routines and activities to maximize the four dimensions of wellness: Social, Intellectual, Physical and Spiritual. Because it is a natural, whole-person approach to care, every staff member participates in engaging residents in the course of providing services throughout the day and night. We plan activities seven days a week, for both groups and individuals, as well as for various stages of dementia. These can include dance, nature walks, games, cooking/baking, art therapy, parties, entertainment, special trips, daily bus rides, pet visits, music and singing, partnerships with schools and more.

Cost

Caregivers and family members naturally want to do what is best, but the cost of memory care is not something to gloss over. It is a practical term that must be addressed. At CountryHouse, we provide various pricing structures, which we have laid out in detail. An important note is to avoid comparing apples to oranges, as far as memory care pricing goes: While there may be memory care centers with lower rates, low rates often mean cutting corners with regard to the quality of life, the level of medical care, and the robustness of programming.

Our Philosophy

It is important to make note of the CountryHouse philosophy, which separates us from our competitors. We believe that even those who are facing memory loss and dementia can remain balanced and centered in their lives. We believe that they can continue to move forward, learning and growing and experiencing new things. Though the symptoms of dementia may not be “cured,” the right activities can stimulate positive memories, and create moments of joy and pleasure each and every day. Our LifeCycles program, which includes weeklong immersions into different themes and topics throughout the year, provides this kind of positive stimulation, and is recognized as cutting-edge in the field of memory care.

Assisted Living Communities for Loved Ones Requiring Memory Care

For some families, providing in-home care may be the best option. That is something we fully support. For others, however, a time might come when caregivers feel stressed or burned-out; when they realize that their aging family member is not being engaged or invigorated; when they elect to transition to full-time, professional care. CountryHouse provides the professionalism without sacrificing the comfortable, at-home feel. We also provide innovative wellness cycles that turn the conventional old-age paradigm on its head, and provide opportunities for residents to thrive and to grow. In addition, families can come visit their loved one and are encouraged to come visit at any time.

We invite you to tour a nearby CountryHouse location to see if it might be right for your loved one. To learn more, contact us today.

We help those with memory loss find joy in everyday pleasures. Come visit us!

CountryHouse Stories

W e honor a person's life by telling his or her story. Alzheimer’s disease gradually robs people of the memories that remind them of who they are, where they’ve been, and what they’ve done. By gathering and preserving memories, we can bring important events and experiences from the past into the present. We can be the link to each one’s life history. Stories help affirm all the positive things a person has done in life and can still do. They remind us of who the individual was before Alzheimer’s disease.

Dear Becky, It has been almost two months since dad died (Erick Seifert), and I wanted to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to you and all of your outstanding staff at Astoria Gardens. As you recall, our family was quite involved with selecting a memory care unit for dad. We came armed with a long list of detailed questions when looking for the ideal placement. Having experience as an RN with hospice and home health care background, I knew what I wanted AND did not want when it c…

Dear Mr. Hug, Once again, your team at the Kensington has proven their devotion to your motto, “Treating People Like Family is the Heart of What We Do!” You were kind enough to visit my family in my mother’s room the day that we moved her in a year ago. This evening, with my brother, Mike, from Hastings out-of-town, I was faced with being “on call” with my mother Doris Kleppinger from where I live in Virginia. She has been facing some issues of not eating, difficulty swallowing, and breath…
