Since opening our doors in 1999, VIP has specialized solely in the care of Alzheimer's and dementia patients.
Residents in the minimum stage of Alzheimer’s or dementia are ambulatory but may need the help of one person, due to an unsteady gait. Patients need occasional cueing and prompting, but are continent and fully able to function in the bathroom by themselves.
At the Intermediate care level, residents have an unsteady gait, are exit seekers and need complete assistance going to the bathroom. They require help every day with eating, getting dressed, and using the toilet. VIP staff members are trained to use lots of cues, prompts and direction to assist with their daily needs.
Maximum care is provided to residents who have an unsteady gait and need the assistance of two people. Caregivers will cue, prompt, praise and support residents in daily routines such as sitting on a chair, going to bed, or using the bathroom. Maximum care residents are sometimes an elopement risk and can be aggressive.
Hospice / Aging in Place
Residents at VIP Memory Care will never have to move because of behavior problems and challenges associated with Alzheimer’s or dementia. We are extremely committed to allowing residents to age with dignity in one place, surrounded by staff members who truly care for them.
With Hospice Care, residents will receive extra services from a third party to ease their pain and provide the care and case management necessary for the most comfortable quality of life. Families have peace of mind knowing their loved ones will live their final days in familiar surroundings and with caregivers they know and trust.
