Focused Cognitive Care
Caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia requires patience, compassion, and special training. That’s why people choose Memory Care at Cedar Crest. Our dementia specialist provides adapted programming that engages our residents with where they are at; incorporating daily music, adapted activities, crafts, and games.
Each resident enjoys the comfort and privacy of their own room with individual temperature controls. Daily care includes 3 chef-prepared meals and snacks, medication management, assistance with activities of daily living, housekeeping, laundry, and round-the-clock staffing.
People with Alzheimer’s will choose communities like Cedar Crest, because we can provide support for them through all three stages of the disease. In the early stages, Cedar Crest can provide medication management in our Independent Apartments and Assisted Living. As the resident progresses into the moderate and severe stages, we can provide more hands-on care in Memory Care and Skilled Nursing as needed.
Cedar Crest also provides ongoing education and support for the loved ones of those affected by Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Cedar Crest has an ongoing partnership with the South Central Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and supports their annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In addition to that, Cedar Crest hosts periodic seminars to educate the community about the disease.
