House of Hope Alzheimer's Care
Established in the fall of 2003, this community was designed specifically for people in the early to middle stages of Alzheimer’s AND their families.
The 50,000 square foot building is made up of six neighborhoods, with 10–11 private apartments each. To feel at home, each neighborhood has a kitchen, a family-style dining room, a living room, a washer/dryer, and a whirlpool bath. Those are the things you see. What you don’t see is truly what sets us apart.
It’s called the Vigil Dementia Monitoring System. Designed and manufactured in Canada, it calls for assistance when residents are unable to do so; helping caregivers provide care when and where it is needed. There’s nothing for the resident to wear. It’s all done through sensors.
And that’s just the neighborhoods. Outside those, you’ll find a community room/chapel, a 50’s diner with an authentic soda fountain, a library, a beauty/barber shop, and a beautiful dining area with a deck that overlooks the largest of our three courtyards!
We realize making the transition from your family’s care to someone else’s isn’t easy, so we included “Transitions Day Program.” This program is designed to ease the stress and worry of those caring for a loved one at home. Day services are available night or day. Activities here are similar to the ones offered in the neighborhoods.
Living with memory loss is not easy for anyone however, we are here to ease the anxiety, inspire joy and live one moment at a time, with you.
