Memory Care Lifestyle Option
Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can bring enormous challenges to daily life, both for people living with memory loss and for their families. The Arbour staff is specially trained in the many facets of caring for those with dementia. We strive to provide a comforting and secure environment that encourages social engagement and celebrates connections at every level.
Feels Like Home
The Arbour at Brightwater Senior Living of Tuxedo provides the finest lifestyle options for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It offers outstanding healthcare services, an enhanced activities program, and an exceptional dining experience all within a safe and secured environment. The studio suites promote privacy and independence while the common areas encourage socialization among residents, family, and friends. Additionally, located throughout the common areas are life skills stations, which encourage involvement in familiar activities.
Personal Healthcare Services
The Arbour practices a person-centered care approach that honours and respects the voices of its residents as well as those closest to them. The emphasis is always on the resident as an individual. A comprehensive life history is completed, which focuses on the experiences, preferences, and interests that characterize the unique person he or she is today. An individualized service plan is then created and revised on a routine basis. Our care, however, is a continuing process of listening, observing, and trying new or different approaches to assure the resident’s optimum wellbeing.
