Finding the right memory care community for a loved one living with dementia can be a difficult task.
Will the staff be caring and professional? Are there activities designed to keep residents engaged and stimulated? What about amenities and the facility itself?
“Our memory care community is filled with joyful, compassionate and talented staff,” says Alena Gimlin, Executive Director at Fieldstone Communities Rolling Bay, on Bainbridge Island. “From our caregivers to activities assistants and dining servers, all are highly trained and knowledgeable, with the techniques needed to meet each of our residents exactly where they are in their journey living with dementia.”
Fieldstone Communities’ memory care services are designed for around-the-clock care and comfort for residents with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Residents enjoy beautiful surroundings, gourmet dining and a variety of engaging activities and amenities that they might not have access to if they continued living at home.
Their life enrichment program is customized to encourage connection, balance and stimulation, and create joyful moments for all of those that participate.
“A highlight to life in our vibrant community is the increase in life-enriching activities,” Gimlin says. “From scenic outings to yoga on the lawn, we have an activity that is tailored to each resident’s likings and abilities.”
A purposeful design
Fieldstone’s memory care community is designed with purpose and intention, giving residents all the comforts of home – and more.
“We’ve thought of everything to make our residents’ lives even better,” Gimlin says. “Our apartments are located on spacious and simple corridors that lead to our Town Square where residents can connect with peers and our team in the movie theatre, or perhaps in the Pepsi Cola Café.”
With beautifully appointed apartments, cozy and inviting common areas, art studio, spa and salon, and large outdoor courtyard providing an engaging environment, residents are free to choose activities within a secure setting.
“Off of each corridor is a sizeable courtyard that is designed for all seasons,” Gimlin says. “We have a large covered area for our residents to enjoy year round and beautiful gardens that are often home to hummingbirds , bunnies and the occasional deer! The entire community is secure, and we have staff on site around the clock monitoring and meeting the needs of our residents.
“Our memory care community on Rolling Bay is a serene and safe environment, with a diligent team here to support you and your loved one.”
