Our campus includes four self-contained “houses” with community and outdoor living spaces allowing residents to move about in an environment designed to keep them safe. Each house has its own living room, dining room, kitchen, full bath and laundry. Common areas shared by the houses include an activity and craft studio, barber and beauty salon, wellness center, secured backyard with a porch and expansive landscaped walking paths.
Each of the four houses has private bedrooms, each with a half-bath. A few bedrooms are shared. Feel free to furnish your room with personal belongings or use furnishings we provide: a bed, nightstand, dresser, lamp, chair window treatments and linens. All utilities are included with the exception of phone and cable television.
Visual Cues And Stimulation
At Arden Courts, visual cues be an effective way of communicating with people living with dementia. There are visual cues everywhere. Symbols and colors help our residents avoid confusion, stay oriented and remain as independent as possible. Descriptive photos can often take the place of language and signs. These cues are designed not only to help residents effortlessly navigate the halls and pathways, but also to stimulate memory and create triggers.
Freedom Of Movement
Arden Courts features an average of 12 exits leading to different paths of exploration—all within the friendly, secure environs of the community. There is approximately one-third of a mile of paved walkways and courtyards in the landscaped backyard with color-coded visual cues as wayfinders. With the exception of the day’s therapeutic activities or forecast, how residents spend their time—and where—is up to them.
Residents do not leave the closely monitored confines of Arden Courts, yet rarely feel restricted. They move freely about the community, both indoors and outdoors, without leaving our secure environment. The common areas encourage the enjoyment of interaction and socialization without sacrificing safety.
