Compassion MattersSo We Truly Care for People with Alzheimer's or Dementia
When Alzheimer’s disease or dementia hits home, it can discourage and exhaust not only the victim, but also the entire family.
Memory Lane at Crandall Medical Center is a 24-bed, secured unit specially dedicated to care of people with memory impairment.
The nursing staff at Crandall’s Memory Lane are Certified Dementia Care Practitioners (CDPs). Goals of Memory Lane’s specially trained staff are to:
- Simplify and enhance activities of daily living
- Provide consistent daily care; a secure, comfortable routine
- Focus on abilities rather than disabilities
- Preserve personal dignity and a sense of well-being
- Encourage reminiscing and life review
The landscaped courtyard allows residents a sense of freedom in a safe, outdoor area. The therapeutic kitchen allows opportunities for familiar, pleasant tasks such as baking for special occasions. The Serenity Room is a place for relaxation in quiet moments. Family-style meals provide time for social interaction.
Each of the 24-beds in Memory Lane is certified for Medicare and Medicaid.
