When an older family member begins to experience memory loss or other symptoms of dementia, you are faced with multiple questions: Can I take care of my loved one at home? Is it possible to get additional help for my loved one at home? Is it time to transition my loved one into a professional memory care setting? At CountryHouse, we effectively provide guidance and answers to these questions and more. We provide cutting-edge, innovative care while maintaining an intimate, home-like setting. The result is a residence where those facing memory loss can feel welcomed, cared for, and engaged every single day — their wellness attended to, their safety prioritized, their happiness amplified.
At CountryHouse, our philosophy of care focuses on creating moments of joy.
The first thing to note about CountryHouse is that it is, indeed, a house — and we go to great lengths to make it feel that way. All of the markings of nursing home or hospital life are consciously avoided here, which means you will not see signs posted, employees wearing scrubs, or lunch trays used in the dining hall. Additionally, our buildings are all designed to be simple and accessible even to those in the advanced states of dementia.
Instead, we design each CountryHouse location to feel like a home. These spaces are intimate, and dining rooms, communal sitting areas, sunrooms, and patios abound. Bedrooms are private, and generously sized. The décor is all made to feel home-like, and residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture from home if they wish to.
It is not the building itself that makes CountryHouse unique, however. What really sets CountryHouse apart is a unique approach to whole-person wellness, something we call the LifeCycles program. LifeCycles has been meticulously designed and tested, and recognized as innovative within the field of memory loss care. It emphasizes a four-fold approach to personal health — physical, spiritual, social, and intellectual — and is rooted in the idea that, for someone facing memory loss, there is still much life to be lived, and plenty of opportunities for joy and happiness.
The LifeCycles program is divided into weeks, with each week providing an immersive plunge into a particular theme or topic, often connected to the season. With 52 different weeks planned, LifeCycles provides a different set of interactions every single day, always tied back to that theme. The particular programming may include everything from cooking/baking to a social outing, as well as games, crafts, exercise, dance, and more. Everything is planned to provide personal stimulation and growth, and to facilitate happy memories among all assembled.
At CountryHouse, everything is ultimately considered to be an important activity — even something as simple as getting up and having breakfast in the morning. Everything our residents do is an opportunity for interaction and for enjoyment, and our staff members all know it and seek to facilitate meaningful connections, all while keeping health and safety as the ultimate concerns.
What we provide at CountryHouse hinges on the knowledge and professionalism of our staff. As such, each staff member is carefully selected and rigorously trained, ensuring that everyone who works at CountryHouse is committed, caring, and well-versed in how the LifeCycles program functions, as well as in the more basic concepts of memory loss care.
Staff members are also prepared to identify and implement changes in each resident’s care pattern, as needed. The reason for this is simple: We do not believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach. We know that all residents are unique, and their needs evolve as their conditions change. CountryHouse provides individualized care that is responsive to specific needs.
Because of the individualized nature of what we do, CountryHouse also offers different pricing structures, corresponding to different services and different levels of need. This is an important consideration to make, and we invite caregivers to review our pricing structures thoroughly, reaching out to us directly with any questions of inquiries.
As you consider memory care assisted living for your family member, it is important to think of all of their needs — not just medical care, but also quality of life, level of socialization, and whole-person wellness. We seek to emphasize all of these at CountryHouse, which means, in turn, that we provide peace of mind to caregivers and family members.
