With the increasing population of adults age 65 and older, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are becoming more and more prevalent, which is why having a Memory Care facility is so important.
Francois Bend’s Around the Bend is a secure, specialized environment for residents with memory loss. The dedicated area has a separate front entrance staffed by a team which includes a community manager, an activity coordinator, housekeeper, and nurses. Around the Bend includes 24 apartments with private bathrooms and kitchenettes, an activity room, dining room and private courtyard. Each resident has an individual care plan that is updated quarterly.
Programs and activities are created to encourage current strengths and abilities, promote cognitive function, provide meaning and joy, and stimulate reminiscence.
Here at Francois Bend, our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those with memory loss, as well as their families and caregivers.
