Some decisions in life are harder to make than others, especially when it comes to caring for an aging loved one and choosing the best place for them to call home. At Westhaven Villa and her sister residences in beautiful Aberdeen, the focus is on providing the best possible care in home-like environments through their Caring Places.
Home is where the heart is
The changing needs of an aging family member can put a strain on the whole family, and finding the right place for your loved one to be happy, cared for and cherished, allows you to focus on your precious relationship and spend time doing the important things.
“We want to help your family member feel like part of our family!” says Westhaven Villa’s Hanna Hales, noting that their facilities’ homey settings at Westhaven Villa, Riverside Place, and Beehive Retirement Community, let families relax knowing their loved ones are safe, secure and looked after.
Specific, tailored care
Everyone’s needs as they age are different, and Westhaven Villa is equipped to deal with every stage of life, from simple, basic needs to complete dependance, even providing hospice when necessary. Westhaven works hand in hand with a sister community, Riverside Place, to provide the specialized care for those who may need to transition to Memory Care catering to the specific and changing needs of those with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Providing individualized care plans takes into account everyone’s specific concerns and needs. Because of the unique nature of the services offered, and the kind and knowledgeable staff, each resident in these small home-like communities receives consistent and appropriate care, with reassessments done on a regular basis to ensure high standards of personal care meet any changing needs.
In addition to exceptional care, many community-based activities are offered through the Life-enrichment Program, such as crafts, cooking, bingo and other games. Outings are a frequent occurrence, connecting residents with their community. A favourite among the many different group activities on offer are the scenic drives through the countryside!
Specialized Memory Care Program
For those dealing with the onset of dementia and other related conditions, the Memory Care Program at the sister communities, Riverside Place in Hoquiam, and Beehive Retirement Community in McCleary, provide a place for these residents to feel a sense of purpose while practicing life skills in a safe and welcoming environment. Music is a great memory stimulant, no matter what stage of life you are in so the unique Brain Music Program offered allows families to create a specialized playlist for their loved one. This same program is implemented in a more therapeutic way in the Memory Care program, using familiar music to aid mood and enhance feelings of familiarity.
No matter what the care needs of you or your family member, the kind and caring folks at Westhaven Villa, Riverside Place, and Beehive Retirement Community will help you make the best choice.
