An Eldercare Community
Cedar Winds has been created for loved ones who need continuous, long-term care but also require special attention due to mild or moderate stages of Alzheimer's. This close-knit community provides a safe, loving environment.
Elders of Cedar Winds may need assistance with everyday tasks, much like those of Maple Spring. However, they also experience symptoms of Alzheimer's, the leading cause of dementia. This may include loss of memory, problems with reasoning or judgment, disorientation, difficulty learning or loss of language skills. An estimated 4.5 million Americans suffer from the disease.
We want your loved one to remain safe and as functional as possible, so at CedarWinds we take great steps to decrease the effects of the disease. This is accomplished by utilizing caregivers well trained in the disease. With a higher number of caregivers to Elder, CedarWinds creates an intimate setting that allows for more one-on-one interaction, increased supervision, and more peace of mind for family and loved ones.
Elders receive 24-hour skilled nursing services and participate in special programs designed to deal with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Our CedarWinds Program Manager treats Elders with additional illnesses or medical problems on-site, greatly reducing the risk of Elder confusion or anxiety associated with transportation to another facility.
Therapeutic activities are daily occurrences at CedarWinds. As our name implies, many of our activities and programs rely on stimulating the senses. Various forms of aroma and touch therapy trigger memory. "Life reminiscing" allows Elders to focus on reminders of the past and life events. Research has shown these types of activities may slow the progression of the disease and keep Elders functioning at their highest levels. Due to our intimate setting, family members are encouraged to actively participate in a loved one's care. Ongoing therapeutic programs and activities include:
Our combination of experienced caregivers, comprehensive innovative treatments and a safe, loving atmosphere create a care setting like no other.
