Whether you’re experiencing it yourself or watching a loved one go through it, memory loss and impairment is difficult. The conditions and situations that arise directly from it pose a long list of challenges that most people simply aren’t equipped to deal with. We understand. And that’s why we’ve directed significant resources to memory care services and facilities. Our Bradford Houses are designed to keep you or your loved one safe, cared for, and engaged with activities and others.
Bradford Houses are memory care cottages specifically designed to provide assistance and supervision to seniors with memory impairment who can no longer live safely in their own homes but do not need all of the medical services offered by our skilled nursing facility. Each Bradford House accommodates five residents with their own bedroom and bathroom. Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities that are tailored to their specific abilities.
Safety is a primary concern, but we also promote resident interaction. All doors leading outside from the Bradford Houses lead into an enclosed courtyard. The courtyard gates are secured, but with accommodations to exit in case of an emergency.
At the same time, we encourage each resident to remain involved in activities of daily living, which promotes personal relationships and communicates the importance of each individual’s dignity.
One of the ways Brethren Care Village provides the highest level of care for our residents is our staff-to-resident ratio and our emphasis on programming. While some memory care facilities employ staff members whose duties are more generalized, our focus on specialization ensures that our residents are continually attended to by highly-skilled staff throughout their entire experience on campus. This unique approach means that at any given time, we have more staff on hand doing what they’ve been trained to do, creating a safer, healthier, and more enjoyable experience for all of our residents.
Our memory care staff is trained to care specifically for the unique needs and challenges of those in our care. Approaching each interaction with care and compassion, our memory care staff considers your loved one a treasured member of the family.
Twenty-four hour monitoring of our memory care residents also allows friends and families of our residents to rest easy knowing that their loved ones are in great hands at all times.
