Experience CountryHouse – Assisted Living for Your Loved One

Choosing an assisted living community for your loved one is a big decision; you want to make sure you choose a place where their medical needs can be met, where safety is a priority, and where they feel loved, supported, and at home. At CountryHouse, we provide all of these things but also go a step further in our LifeCycles program, a holistic understanding of whole-person well-being, seeking to engage each resident and promote physical, social, spiritual and intellectual well-being through each daily interaction.

Agemark Experience CountryHouseAt CountryHouse you will experience a place that truly feels like home — not like a hospital or a medical facility. You will also see a lively community, filled with activity, social interaction and laughter; a place where safety procedures and security features are available 24/7; a place where healthcare services are largely invisible, yet available as needed.

We stress relationship-building in each step of the process, and stay connected with families throughout the transition — from first contact and assessment through caregiver education, getting to know the resident-to-be, and ultimately assisting with the move itself.

Well-designed Architecture & Comforting Amenities

One of the first things you will notice about CountryHouse is how the layout of the building feels a lot like a large family home, which provides a natural, nurturing and supportive environment for memory care. Memory loss experts designed the CountryHouse concept and incorporated the Greenhouse approach to long-term care. The innovative design enables residents to walk freely without barriers, and to exercise daily both indoors and in our beautifully landscaped courtyards. In no way does the community feel cold, clinical or sterile. Instead, you will find shared fireplaces, communal dining rooms and spacious rooms in which to gather and socialize. Everything at CountryHouse is designed to create the feeling of warmth, comfort, and joy, while institutional cues — med carts, scrubs, signage and the like — are all absent.

Personalized Care Approach for a Home-like Feeling

The building is not the only thing that is warm and welcoming – the staff members are too! We want everyone at CountryHouse to feel like he or she is a part of our family. As such, we get to know each resident personally — what he or she likes, what makes him or her happy, everything about their life story. With this information, care can be personalized to make connections that create genuine moments of joy. We fill their days with good things — interaction, rest, socialization, nutrition and more. Everything we offer is individualized, and everything we do is meant to enrich the lives of our residents. Moreover, we do not view “activities” as a separate part of the day; every part of each resident’s day is seen as a chance for meaningful engagement.

Before & After Moving In

At CountryHouse, helping each resident feel at home starts with relationship-building before he or she even moves in.

Before Moving In

Our mission is to befriend each resident and make him or her feel comfortable with our community and staff, even before the transition to assisted living begins.

We provide support to family members too, through educational opportunities, caregiver support meetings, Day Club and overnight services and more. In the process, we listen to families and our residents-to-be and get to know them individually. The more we know, the better we can meet each person where they are in the process of change, and the better we can facilitate a move-in transition when the time comes. Ongoing family support and education is an essential part of the caring service we provide to each resident and his or her family, and we strongly encourage family members to take advantage of our Virtual Dementia Tour and other educational resources.

After Moving In

Relationships continue to grow long after your loved one moves into CountryHouse. We stay connected to our residents and to their families. Families look forward to the seasonal Family Traditions events and meeting for Coffee Club every month. They develop lasting bonds with staff and each other as a result of these activities, and feel supported throughout the transition and beyond. For those who feel burned out from their time spent as caregivers, these support services are particularly meaningful. We also strongly encourage families to visit anytime.

Memory Care and Assisted Living at CountryHouse

CHKearney IMG_6524[1]Although expert healthcare is provided to our residents as needed, we take care to do so in a way that makes them feel like they are at home rather than in a healthcare facility. We want our residents to feel like we are their family — in a place they can find belonging, acceptance, and joy. As such, non-institutional language is stressed, and healthcare is offered as discreetly as possible.

In short, everything we do here reflects our commitment to personalized care. We invite you to experience this for yourself. Contact us today with any questions you may have about CountryHouse, or come by for a tour!

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…
