Akina Mama Memory Care is a friendly and comfortable residential home, supporting up to 11 Residents with moderate to severe stages of Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Care is personally tailored to each individual and is delivered with dignity, trust and patience by a dedicated team. The home cares for individuals with a range of care needs, from those who require minimal support to those who require 24-hr personal assistance.
We currently attend to 40 patients in their own home environment and with that experience, have identified the need for a facility for when homecare becomes too strenuous on the family.
Rooms are spacious and decorated however, patients are welcome to incorporate their favorite bedding, pictures etc. into their own space.
Akina Mama Memory Care focuses on affording patients the opportunity to spend time outdoors together with an indoor area to spend quality time with family & friends.
Residents have access to a lawn area at the front and back of the home, while indoors the home has a communal lounge area and dining room for socializing and relaxing.
The social atmosphere is enhanced by a flexible program of activities which focuses on physical and emotional health, while looking to make the most of community links and personal interests.
Every effort has been made to create an ambience of friendship and care that allows the residents security and comfort.
