With Ruth’s House, Cedarhurst Living will introduce a new level of Memory Care to the Metro East area. It will focus on extended care and will be able to accommodate up to 17 residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias.
Inside and out, Ruth’s House will be a Memory Care community that is anything but ordinary. Residents will be empowered for independence with customized, resident-centered care and support, first-class architecture and amenities, and an extensively trained and mission-driven staff. Inside the community, residents will enjoy the peaceful décor, an on-site chapel, a large great room perfect for gathering with friends and family as well as private bathrooms in every apartment. Residents’ lives will be filled with fun and challenging activities, healthy and freshly prepared food, and individualized person-centered care.
All Ruth’s House’s Memory Care residents will have a customized individual care plan to suit his or her unique needs, including assistance with medications, bathing and personal care. Outdoor amenities include beautiful courtyards, a lovely pond, a cozy gazebo, a walking path around the entire community and even has a separate private home on-site that may be rented out by families visiting from out of town. Memory Care apartments will be available to rent monthly, with no need for an expensive “buy-in” or endowment. The goal is to work together to ensure our residents are happy, comfortable and getting the most out of every day at Ruth’s House.
An exclusive and customized experience for those who may be suffering from memory loss. From daily individual therapy and support to group activities and exercises, we have specifically designated memory care apartment spaces to meet our residents’ unique needs.
We know the challenges that come with those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias. We believe that to live a fulfilling, purposeful, and rewarding life, care should be centered on the whole person and not a diagnosis. To create a care plan as individual as each resident, we employ an approach called “Person-Centered Care”.
Professionally trained by the Alzheimer’s Association, our staff begins with a deep understanding of each resident before they were diagnosed. We get to know their likes, dislikes and their daily routine before coming to our community.
With this intimate, person-to-person knowledge, we develop a lifestyle that supports individual choices, offers flexibility to meet specific preferences, and focuses on his or her strengths. As a result, our residents live each day more completely with respect and dignity.
