Bristol House Memory Care is designed to be accommodating to residents and offer a comfortable, home-like feel in each neighborhood, dining and family rooms. The community's design and layout allow staff to easily monitor and assist residents when they are needed.
Bristol House Memory Care community features:
Private suites with closets, bathrooms, and cozy common areas for group activities.
Forty-eight spacious private rooms with private bathrooms. Each room has a window, and the entire building is replete with natural light. Natural light is important for the overall temperament of residents and to combat issues like sundowning — the confusing of day and night.
The community is divided into two 24-room neighborhoods (wings of the building), each complete with a family room and quaint dining area and kitchen. All 24 suites in each neighborhood are private and offer private bathrooms. Each neighborhood is reminiscent of a home. The two small wings allow for enhanced individual care for each resident's activities of daily living including dressing, bathing, toileting, and assistance in their rooms. Neighborhoods also promote quality care in small group activities like dining, crafts, and other leisurely activities. Studies show that having smaller groups and low staff-to-resident ratios promotes resident engagement and decreases the likelihood of a resident becoming agitated.
Outside is a secure courtyard with a sitting area, private gardens, and walking paths.
