Bristol House Memory Care is designed to be accommodating for 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 neighbored 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 in their activities of daily living including dressing, bathing, toileting and assistance in their rooms. It also promotes 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 being agitated.
Outside is a secure courtyard with a sitting area, private gardens and walking paths.
