Treating people like family is the heart of what we do. Schedule a Visit
We believe services are just part of everyday living at CountryHouse. Because CountryHouse was designed by memory care experts to look and feel like a family home, service delivery is discreetly built into the natural function of the household.
At CountryHouse, our philosophy of care focuses on creating moments of joy.
Each house has gracious dining rooms, comfortable living rooms, and bedrooms clustered in quiet wings. There’s a hands-on kitchen for residents to participate in simple food preparation activities. The residential layout enables friends to enjoy socializing together… or find peaceful seclusion. In addition, circular pathways encourage barrier-free walking, both indoors and out.
Amenities also include suite choices, a family dining room, salon/spa, secured entries, Wellness Office, spacious gathering rooms with fireplaces, and an enclosed courtyard with patio, gardens and water feature. Families enjoy visiting in the beautiful and comfortable common areas.
Services include 24-hour care, daily home-cooked meals with mealtime assistance if needed, medication supervision, help with bathing, dressing and hair care, housekeeping, laundry and transportation. A nurse is on-site Monday through Friday, and on call 24/7. Doctors, podiatrists, beauticians and other affiliated professionals make regular visits.
A full time program coordinator oversees a 52-week curriculum of activities that are integrated with LifeCycles, our signature, whole-person wellness program. The program curriculum is designed to maximize all four elements of wellness: Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Spiritual.
Because everything we do is considered an activity, all staff participate in activities at CountryHouse seven days a week. There is a balance of daily, routine activities such as Morning Exercise and the Afternoon Bus Ride, and weekly activities such as Tuesday Pet Visits. Special activities add variety, depending on the season, such as bus trips, dances, classroom visits, concerts, parties, and more. There’s also a balance of group and personalized, one-on-one activities. Interaction with pets, children and nature are strong elements of our program curriculum.
Families are invited to weekly social events as well as annual “Family Traditions” events such as a Mothers Day Tea or Breakfast with Santa.
For those who are not quite ready for full-time residency, daytime and/or overnight stays are available. It’s a great way to give CountryHouse a try, or a solution for when an in-home caregiver needs a break. We also offer caregiver support meetings and educational events to the community.
Memory loss is different for each person, so care is customized for each resident at CountryHouse. Individual service plans are based on an assessment of needs as well as interests, daily routines, personal history and preferences. Knowing as much as possible about each person helps staff relate to individuals on personal level, provide care more effectively, and make quick adjustments when needs change.
This approach requires a higher staff-to-resident ratio than is normally staffed in assisted living.
In addition, every effort is made to maintain an environment that is both reassuring and safe. That’s why CountryHouse staff do not wear scrubs, which people associate with hospitals and illness. Providing assistance with the activities of daily living as discreetly as possible helps minimize anxiety.
Most importantly, our services are provided by very special people, hand-picked for their patience, kindness and empathy. They receive initial and ongoing training on the latest best practices for dementia care.
