Welcome to the "Woodlands", our licensed Alzheimer's / Dementia unit. Our mission is to be an integral part of our community, viewed by people of all ages as a comfortable, welcoming, and homelike place to live, work and play. To serve as a valuable resource in Iosco County by maintaining a leadership role and providing and facilitating services to our elders through our multi-skilled, caring and compassionate staff. A resident with Alzheimer's or other dementia often need an environment geared toward allowing them to function at their full potential, a large facility can be overwhelming to this person. For this reason, the "Woodlands" was opened in 2002 with 28 beds available, providing security and continuity to Dementia residents. Here, at the "Woodlands", the best interest of the resident and the unit is always evaluated carefully.Our brand new state-of-the-art facility was architecturally designed realizing, with bricks and mortar, the latest research based concepts in Alzheimer's Care. You and your family member will admire the woodland views and the country club like setting, along with the activities, services, professional staff, and clean surroundings provided.
Our facility offers an alternative living environment called a small house. It is a home that focuses on living life to the fullest and is a radical departure from a traditional institutional style facility; a new approach to long-term care. This home, consisting of ten private rooms and private bathrooms, supports elder centered care and advocates for decision making taking place as close to our elders as possible. This home incorporates a philosophy of individualized care and focuses on elders choosing how they want to spend their day. The primary purpose of Small House is to serve as a place where elders can receive assistance and support with activities of daily living, skilled nursing care and therapy, without their healthcare becoming the focus of their existence. The hearth is the center of the home and meal preparation, household duties and personal cares are provided by universal caregivers. Our small house is a special place that our elders can call "home".
