Within Ingleside, is a special-care unit called Inglenook. This unit is designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and other related dementias. It serves up to 26 residents. The care staff is made up of trained professionals from many disciplines, who can provide for the needs of persons with cognitive impairment.
Inglenook provides a safe, secure setting for residents who need special care, supervision, and provisions for their health needs. Specially trained staff assist the resident in maintaining a life of dignity and meaning for as long as possible by supporting their abilities and helping them to function at their highest practicable level within their environment. Inglenook strives to provide a comprehensive program for residents with degenerative dementia in a caring environment that offers the opportunity to develop rapport not only with other dementia residents, but also with their families and/or significant others.
Consistent daily routines and supportive staff provide each resident with opportunities to succeed through a program of well balanced activities based on the needs of this special population. Activities can include:
- Individual attention,
- Small and large group settings,
- Learning opportunities,
- Field trips,
- Sensory groups, and
- Physical exercise.
The objective is to assist each resident to enhance or maintain self care abilities within their cognitive limitations, to reduce isolation by providing environmental and sensory stimulation in an attempt to raise or maintain levels of awareness and to actively involve residents in physical exercise to maintain strength and mobility.
Inglenook also attempts to meet the emotional and psychological needs of each resident’s family by providing a team approach to the care of their loved one, by involving the family in the care planning process, and by offering support meetings and involvement in social events both on the unit and within the facility.
