Ranch House - Memory Care

"The Ranch House" is an assisted living level of care specifically designed for older adults with dementia.  

Design: The Ranch House is designed to replicate a typical home with a Great Room, library, kitchen and secured outdoor area which allows the resident to be independent and safe.  The Ranch House has seven private bedrooms and baths, in addition to, three smaller, private bedrooms with semi-private baths and a shared sitting area.  The outdoor garden area is fully accessible and safe without staff assistance.  

Staffing: Staffing on the day and evening shift is 1:5 providing assistance with various activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and medication management.  The next door skilled nursing facility (Health Center) is available to lend licensed nursing support as needed.

Programs: The Ranch House staff are trained to focus on what an individual can still do rather than what they are no longer able to do.  Many individuals with dementia retain "cognittive muscle memory" about simple daily tasks like laundry, assisting with meals, gardening, etc.  Because this is designed like a home, individuals have the opportunity to contribute through normal, everyday activities.  In addition, the staff provide enrichment activities designed specifically for this population.
