Memory Care Wing

Absolut Care of Aurora Park is pleased to offer a specialized memory care unit for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. “The empathetic caregivers on our memory care unit have been hand-selected for their ability to deliver compassionate care while fostering self-esteem, dignity and security for each of our residents,” stated Director of Nursing Cyndee Foss.

Aurora Park’s secure memory care unit incorporates the latest research and design elements to meet the needs of the residents, while structured programming keeps them active and engaged. The dementia specialists focus on providing emotional and therapeutic care to maintain the existing strengths and abilities of each person. Special importance is placed on recognizing individuality and contributing to a resident’s sense of self-worth. This is achieved by incorporating tasks and activities that were part of their regular everyday routines.

The unit also features visual cues, secured entrances and exits, specialized lighting, calming colors and more. Above all, the employees on the unit are seasoned professionals who possess extensive experience in caring for those with memory impairments. “All of our caregivers receive intensive dementia-specific training, followed by educational updates throughout the year,” Foss remarked.

We also offer support to family members, who serve as vital partners in the care of their loved one.
