"Marshfield is in high demand for a memory care unit because Marshfield does not currently have a facility that is built specifically for someone with memory challenges," said Tiffany Hainz, administrator for Stoney River Assisted Living and Memory Care.
Mashfield, Wisconsin (PRWEB) October 10, 2013
After months of careful planning and design, Stoney River will host a groundbreaking ceremony at 3p.m. on Friday, October 11 for their new Memory Care Community.
Work will begin at the corner of McMillan and St. Joseph’s Avenue on a 23,000 square-foot community which will create 35 full and part-time jobs.
Expected to open in Spring of 2014, the community will offer the city of Marshfield a whole new concept of Memory Care. Personalized care in addition to an environment specifically designed for memory care will give residents facing memory and dementia challenges the best chance to maintain their abilities.
Members of the care team will be trained to pay special attention to each resident and provide personalized care. Staff will take time to learn about each resident’s likes and dislikes, past life experiences and favorite activities, all in an effort to maintain their current abilities.
The building itself is also designed to support memory care. Built-in features will empower the environment itself to participate in the care of each resident. Some of the features include, a resident kitchen, a courtyard garden, an indoor walking path, recollection rooms, a specially designed dining room, built-in showers and safety features.The courtyard garden will offer the residents a chance to safely explore the outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.
"Marshfield is in high demand for a memory care unit because Marshfield does not currently have a facility that is built specifically for someone with memory challenges," said Tiffany Hainz, administrator for Stoney River Assisted Living and Memory Care. "I am excited to have the very first actual memory care facility (in Marshfield) as it will give our residents a safe, comfortable living environment."
Stoney River will host their Ground Breaking Ceremony at 3 p.m. on Friday, October 11 at 1606 North St. Joseph Ave, Marshfield, Wis. The public is invited to attend the ceremony and ask questions about the new memory care community. For more information on this project, call Communication Director Sarah Krenn at 715-207-6423.
