Here at Wellsprings of Westmoreland we are very proud that we can offer more focused care to individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory loss and dementia. It became evident years ago that a special place was needed for those individuals. The 12-bed secure unit was established on the end of the north hall. It provides a large sitting area that gives the feeling you are right at home and a crafting and activities area as well. Adjacent to the lobby area is quaint dining area to provide a quieter place to dine. A beautiful secure outside courtyard has a keypad entrance from our memory care unit which opens into an area complete with benches, shade, and raised garden beds. This memory care unit has become known as the Dechairo Wing.
The Dechairo Wing of our facility offers a small home environment where our residents receive 1 on 1 care from our hand-picked specialty trained staff. Support is given to residents who require more specialized needs in all areas of care. Using evidence-based practice, staff are able to promote resident’s independence and social well-being in a calm and nurturing environment. Daily activities offered on the memory care wing provide structure and appropriate stimulation. This allows residents to continue with social interactions in a safe environment while holding dignity at the upmost of importance.
