Fountain Park Assisted Living & Memory Care’s philosophy about aging is simple: getting older means getting better. Every day brings more experiences and insights. Every day adds value and worth to the lives of our residents.
ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA CARE
Our Memory Care Neighborhood provides our residents who have special needs with a safe, secure, stimulating and soothing environment. All of our employees in the Memory Care Neighborhood are specially trained to provide exceptional care for our residents with memory impairments and we have nurses available 24-hours a day. Upon admission and updated periodically, we will develop and implement an individualized care plan that addresses each resident’s unique needs. Our staff will engage our residents in every day activities and dedicated programming that they can feel pleasure and success in and which will help promote their self-esteem.
RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES & SOCIAL PROGRAMS
There are always enjoyable things to do and places to visit when you are a resident at Fountain Park. Exercise classes, Wii games, entertainment, computer classes, contests and movies are just a few of the many activities our residents enjoy without leaving home. Families and friends are also invited to our Holiday celebrations. Field trips, shopping excursions and restaurant outings keep our Coach on the road each week.
Sometimes just remembering to take medication is tricky, much less refilling prescriptions. Our staff takes the worry out of medication management. A pharmacy makes daily deliveries to Fountain Park and our staff assist residents with their medication needs.
HOUSEKEEPING & LAUNDRY
Fountain Park residents have places to be and things to do. Household chores are not among them. We provide fresh bedding and towels as well as laundry and housekeeping services.
SAFE & SECURE
From optimum design and materials to detection and alarms systems that prevent trouble, Fountain Park is worry-free. Round-the-clock professional staffing and emergency call systems give Fountain Park residents the peace of mind they deserve.
Among our many qualified staff is an individual who is responsible solely for assisting residents and their families with matters relating to their Fountain Park residency. Our Community Relations Director is a resource person and confidante who assists individuals in getting settled at Fountain Park, as well as with issues of transition or accessing community resources.
Our staff is never far away when you need a helping hand. Whether it is help with bathing or getting dressed, we’re ready to assist our residents with matters of a personal nature twenty-four hours a day.
Worship services are celebrated on-site by various denominations through the efforts of congregations in the surrounding community. Staying connected and faithful is part of our plan.
Three delicious meals are served waitress-style along with table-side serving in our spacious dining room. Each meal features a selective menu with multiple entrees. We also offer therapeutic diets for individuals with special nutritional needs. Evening snacks are also served daily.
Also available for our residents’ convenience and personal pleasure at a nominal fee are…
