If you would like to see our center, please call ahead so that we can be sure that someone is available to give you a tour and answer your questions.
My husband is only 50 years old and recently finished therapy following a severe stroke. Is this just for seniors, or do you have younger adults in your program too?
Our recent age range is 18 years old to 100+! And yes, we currently have many participants who are under 65 who have had strokes or other types of brain injuries. Our Post-Rehabilitation Program picks up where therapies leave off to help participants continue to maintain or improve upon their physical and mental abilities.
My mother has pretty severe memory loss and can’t do much of anything for herself. Is she too far advanced for your program?
Probably not, but we will need to do an assessment of her needs. Our Memory Care Program is designed to provide physical and mental stimulation for people with moderate to severe memory loss. We have staff who are very experienced and compassionate in providing care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
My wife uses a wheelchair and cannot walk or get herself on or off the toilet. Can she still come to your program?
Yes, we have a mechanical sit-to-stand lift and qualified staff who can transfer her to the toilet and to a recliner if she needs to rest during the day. We also have a device called a gait-harness ambulator that can sometimes help non-ambulatory participants to walk without danger of falling.
What are your hours of operation and where are you located?
We are open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and are closed only on major holidays. Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For an additional fee, services may be provided before and after operating hours by special arrangement. We are located at 980 N.W. Spruce Avenue, on the corner of division (near Osborne Aquatic Center). Spruce Avenue is one block south of Circle Boulevard, running parallel to Circle between NW 9th Street and Highland Avenue.
Do you have attendance or scheduling requirements?
You do not have to commit to a set schedule; however, in order to provide staffing, food, and materials needed for our high-quality care, we need for you to let us know by 9 a.m. each day if you are scheduling or canceling your loved one. If you do select a set schedule, you can choose how many days per week and which days you would like to come. You can change your schedule if something comes up and/or if you need different or additional days. Our only requirement is that a participant come at least once per month (excluding special circumstances).
