Keizer, Oregon (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
The Arbor at Avamere Court, an addition to the Avamere Court at Keizer continuum of dedicated senior health care and retirement living services, is a newly built Memory Care center that specializes in providing a comfortable and caring environment for older adults with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other mental illness. Located at 450 Clagget Court North, the building is divided into four individually themed environments, totaling 48 private rooms designed to promote a home-like setting.
Approximately 25 individuals comprise the Care Team at The Arbor. They coordinate with home health, hospice, and other practitioners to help meet the residents’ needs. Within the home-like environment the director, nurse, medication aides and caregivers oversee and provide a range of personalized services all designed to provide comfort and compassion.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease today; and that number is estimated to increase by 40% by 2025. Through the addition of The Arbor to Avamere Court at Keizer’s already robust offering of senior services, the Avamere Family of Companies is committed to staying ahead of that upward trend through unique programs and amenities specific to that population.
“It is incredible to see the changes in our residents since The Arbor opened in October,” says Courtney Maksimowicz, Administrator. “By creating an environment that promotes physical, cognitive, and creative skills we have been able to offer an enriching experience for our residents. This coupled with the services provided by our care team allows families to focus on creating new memories with their loved ones. It has been magical seeing the impact of The Arbor on the Keizer and Salem communities, and I can't wait to see where the next year takes us.”
