New Transitional Care Program at Stein Assisted Living

Stein Assisted Living at The Wilf Campus for Senior Living is excited to announce the expansion of its Memory Care program. The expansion includes the addition of a new Transitional Care Neighborhood for individuals who are exhibiting mild or early signs of memory loss or dementia but are not yet ready to move into a full Memory Care program. Stein Assisted Living already operates a secure Memory Care unit, which offers 24-hour supervision by specially trained staff.

Our Approach to Memory Care

At Stein Assisted Living we have a special understanding of the challenges that face seniors with memory impairment and the stress and anxiety their families often feel. We strive to relieve those worries and provide seniors and their families with peace of mind and quality senior health care with respect, compassion and the dignity they deserve.

We believe that each resident of Stein Assisted Living is unique and therefore, their journey is also unique. Whether they are experiencing mild memory loss or are no longer able to properly take care of themselves, each resident at Stein Assisted Living has their own individualized plan of care and is supported by our specially trained staff. Services are regularly evaluated to ensure that we are meeting the changing needs of our residents. They include oversight and assistance with activities of daily living, such as meal assistance, physical assistance, medication management, dressing, grooming, hygiene, and other support as needed. We are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of each resident and helping them take part in our community. At Stein Assisted Living, we embrace the Eden Alternative philosophy of care, which is focused on the care of the human mind and spirit in addition to the care of the human body.

Transitional Care Progarm

In addition to our secure Memory Care community, we now offer a separate transitional care program for individuals who are showing mild or early signs of memory loss or dementia but are not yet ready to move into our secure care unit.  Residents in this program have their own specialized area within our Assisted Living building. There are dedicated specially trained staff, including Dementia Trained and Certified Home Health Aide/Certified Nursing Assistant and a resident engagement coordinator.

Recognizing that dementia and memory loss have many causes, our Transitional care program focuses on meeting each resident’s unique needs early in the progression of their symptoms and providing them with care and engagement as they move smoothly and gradually into memory care if/when needed.

Our dedicated and compassionate team in both the Transitional Care Program and our secure Memory Care unit are specially trained, certified, and well-versed in the challenges associated with all forms of dementia and memory loss. They are dedicated to creating an environment that is focused on caring for each resident’s mind, spirit, and body.

Mind: Our staff utilizes innovative and specialized programs that help stimulate and promote progress and cognitive development, while supporting our residents’ changing needs, memory loss and sensory impairment. Each program is individualized and is tailored to each resident’s cognitive ability. It includes music therapy and the latest technologies.

Spirit: We believe that loneliness and boredom are destructive to an individual’s well-being. We therefore strive to create an atmosphere where our residents feel part of a caring and inclusive community, where no matter their cognitive ability, they are provided with companionship, understanding, and holistic healing therapies. We also provide spiritual care in accordance with our residents’ beliefs. Our staff truly gets to know each resident and their life story and help provide meaning and purpose to each day.

Body: Whether a resident is showing early signs of memory loss or is suffering from advanced Alzheimer’s Disease, our geriatric team of doctors, and specially trained nurses, aides and clinicians regularly conduct medical and cognitive evaluations to ensure that the resident is receiving the care he or she needs at their home at Stein Assisted Living. Our staff are here to respond to our residents’ changing needs and provide the best possible care, which includes a fitness program based on each resident’s ability levels.

Most importantly, no matter their cognitive ability, our program allows our residents to age in place in their home at Stein Assisted Living with dignity, respect, and compassionate care.
