Reassuring Memory Care
The dedicated staff members at Okalee Memory Care encourage skills for residents’ independence, provide meaningful opportunities for creativity and rejoice in successes.
Okalee Memory Care
Memory Care at Okalee is a warm, welcoming living environment for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss. Residents can freely move about this single-level, barrier-free area with simple, home-like furnishings that creates a calming atmosphere.
Each person enjoys a private suite and private bathroom. Residents are encouraged to bring their favorite mementos to create a sense of personal identity.
Residents gather together for meals in the dining room. The community kitchen allows residents to participate in cookie baking and regular kitchen activities. The fireside living room is a natural space to relax. Outdoors is our Memory Garden, a secure courtyard with walking paths and seating areas.
Each person receives an assessment by our RN to determine their abilities and learn how they view and understand their world. This assessment allows our staff to create a plan of care that enhances communication, brings out emotions and personality, celebrates abilities and rejoices in connections.
Staff members receive comprehensive memory care training and ongoing education each year. Staff members learn each person’s life story and interact with residents to better understand their story each day.
