Our Athens Memory Care Community

Surrounded by 11 acres of hardwoods and the natural beauty of Athens, GA, our community integrates design elements that are purposefully crafted to support the unique needs of those with dementia. Our secure community is architecturally designed by a specialized memory care architect to be easy to navigate and features calm, soothing colors and plenty of natural light. Each element contributes to creating a serene, comfortable environment that makes our residents feel at home.

Garden Area

Our garden is enclosed and available for the residents to enjoy at will. It features a porch with ceiling fans, garden lights, sun sails for shade, a water feature, and sensory garden. We have recently sodded the area with barefoot soft grass. It is also a haven for birds as residents may have bird feeders outside their windows. Currently, there are black-capped chickadees, tufted titmouse, cardinals, morning dove, and house wren just to mention a few, and don’t forget the hummingbirds when in season. We also pride ourselves on the view of the backyard where we host about 20 deer. Staff feed the deer corn and apples and have a salt lick for them so they’re fun to watch. There’s plenty of seating room and a paved walking path in the courtyard.

Dining Room

Our dining experience is best summed up as home cooking. Of course, our menu is created by a licensed geriatric dietician but what we are most proud of is our food is not processed box food. Everything is made from scratch and cooked, not heated, in our kitchen. Our residents love it and so does our staff. We also feed our resident’s family when visiting, just let us know so we can make a little extra.

What is a Care Plan?

A care plan is a personalized and comprehensive document that outlines the specific care and support needed for residents with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. It serves as a roadmap for our care partners and healthcare professionals, ensuring that the resident’s unique requirements are met on a daily basis.

Care plans are a collaborative process, involving the resident, their family members, and our healthcare team. It takes into account the resident’s medical history, cognitive abilities, physical limitations, behavioral challenges, and personal preferences. The goal of the care plan is to enhance the quality of life and maximize independence while addressing any potential safety concerns or medical needs.

Care Plan Details

At Haven Memory Care our care plans are based on person-centered care. Person-centered care, previously “patient-centered care,” focuses on the individual needs of patients while considering their environment, abilities, feelings, experiences, and wants.

Of course, this type of care is not just limited to patients in acute care but rather includes residents in our community as well. When we take this approach to care we are able to optimize the patient experience by providing patients and family members with ample opportunity to assist in making medical choices. Under person-centered care, all clinical decisions are made with empathy and deep respect for patient values, preferences, and rights.

Put simply, person-centered services are about taking the time to get to know your patients and residents. “It is only by knowing a person that you can figure out what matters to them,” said Dr. Mike Wasserman, former President of the California Association of Long Term Care Medicine. After 30 days we reevaluate the care plan because so much can happen in the first 30 days. Once the custom care plan is in place it is revisited every quarter to change as their needs change.

What Are ADLs?

ADL’s stands for Activities of Daily Living. All of our resident’s ADLs are taken care of in one way or another. If they are unable to complete these tasks we will either complete them or we will assist based on their level of need. We will always take care of laundry and housekeeping. But other ADLs such as hygiene, toileting, grooming and eating, we take more of an assistance approach based on the level of progression of their diagnosis.

From well-designed living spaces to our secure outdoor garden, we have created an environment that fosters independence and maximizes quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Memory care is necessary when an individual is experiencing significant cognitive decline and struggling with memory loss. We usually see patients admitted to our community starting at stage 3, but ideally when care becomes too much for a loved one to take on by themselves, then a memory care community can become a great option.

Memory care and assisted living are two distinct types of care for seniors that address different needs. While assisted living is designed for older adults who can still manage some aspects of daily life independently, memory care is specifically tailored for individuals with memory impairments such as Alzheimer’s or dementia who need around-the-clock monitoring and assistance.

Memory care improves the quality of life for individuals suffering from memory impairment. Our community offers secure entrances and exits and carefully monitored living spaces to prevent wandering and ensure each resident’s safety. Additionally, we offer structured routines and activities tailored to the needs and abilities of each resident. These programs aim to stimulate cognitive function, enhance memory recall, and promote social interaction. Engaging in meaningful activities help residents maintain their independence, boost self-esteem, and provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Our professional staff are extensively trained to understand the unique challenges associated with memory loss. They are skilled in communication techniques that effectively engage residents, even as their cognitive abilities decline and provide assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and medication management.

When it comes to visiting someone in memory care, the frequency of visits can vary depending on various factors. Generally speaking, it is important to maintain regular contact and visits to ensure the emotional well-being and connection with the person in memory care. However, it’s also crucial to consider their individual needs, preferences, and the guidance provided by the staff.rnrnOne key factor to consider is the stage of the person’s cognitive decline. In the early stages, they may still have the ability to recognize and appreciate regular visits from loved ones. In such cases, it may be beneficial to visit at least once or twice a week to help maintain a sense of familiarity and social interaction. Regular visits can contribute to their overall happiness and provide a much-needed sense of connection.rnrnAs the disease progresses, frequent visits become even more crucial. People in middle or later stages of memory loss may struggle to remember recent events or even recognize their loved ones. However, consistent visits can still provide comfort, reassurance, and a feeling of emotional support. In such cases, it is advisable to visit more frequently, perhaps two or three times a week if feasible.
