At Eastland, our dedicated nurses understand the importance of creating a comfortable and supportive environment for each resident. We recognize that as cognitive abilities decline, simple routines and visual cues can play a vital role in promoting familiarity and ease.
Our nurses work closely with residents’ families to establish personalized routines that enhance their sense of security and well-being. By implementing these routines and incorporating visual cues, we aim to provide a positive substitute for diminishing mental processes. This approach helps residents feel more at ease, reducing anxiety and confusion.
To ensure the safety of our wandering residents, we have implemented a secured locked unit for dementia care. On the locked unit, you will find staff that is specialized to work closely with the individual while continuing to provide quality care to our residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. These highly trained professionals possess extensive knowledge and expertise in managing the unique challenges associated with dementia care. They work closely with residents and their families, developing individualized care plans that prioritize safety, comfort, and quality of life.
