We understand the special needs of Alzheimer's care. At the Abington of Glenview we look at residents who are cognitively impaired as individuals with individual needs and wants. The Abington has developed successful strategies for the care of these residents. These strategies require high levels of ability, creativity and insight from our specially trained team members.
Our Dementia Unit is a comfortable and supportive environment that we feel is just the right size to meet resident's individual needs. The small, structured activity programs provide an optimal atmosphere for residents to share and enjoy leisure activities without feeling overwhelmed by outside disruptions. Our caring, clinically trained nurses, social workers and activity assistants provide specially designed programs to promote health, dignity and self-respect.
Our goals when working with residents on the Special Care Unit include:
- Make every effort to continually provide improvements in care and to provide for the well being of the resident.
- Involve family as well as staff in the development, implementation and evaluation of the assessment and care plan process.
- Gear programs to maximize independence while recognizing resident's strengths and abilities.
- Provide flexibility on the part of the staff and support personnel to help fulfill the residents needs of self sufficiency.
- Provide respite options for caregivers.
