Did you know that people with dementia are at a higher risk of injury-related hospitalization than people without dementia? If you are concerned that your elderly loved one is unable to care for themself due to memory loss or other forms of dementia, there is a solution.

At Audubon Care Homes, we specialize in all forms of memory care, from dementia to Alzheimer’s to aphasia. Our memory care program is unlike any other – we have a unique program that combines medical professionals, engaging activities, pet therapy, and technology that no other assisted living in the country offers.

We have activities planned for every day of the week that keep our residents engaged and promote memory retention. Several of our current residents have come from other care homes in the area who were not a good fit. They now reside at Audubon, and we are proud to report that they are more vibrant and engaged than ever before!

Our entire team of caregivers is required to go through a minimum of 8 hours of dementia care training through the only Alzheimer’s Association-approved training program. We are also the only assisted living in New Orleans with resident engagement technology by IN2L.

If you have been considering assisted living for your loved one or if your loved one is currently in an assisted living that is not a good fit, please contact the owners, Michelle or Scott Lovitt, PharmD., at 504-290-1717 to schedule a personal tour of our beautiful residential care home. You can also take a 360-degree virtual tour of Dreyfous House.

Personalized Memory Care Plans

At Audubon Care Homes, we understand that memory loss affects everyone differently. That is why we create a personalized memory care plan for each of our residents. Our memory care program has been carefully designed to prioritize comfort for our residents so they feel relaxed in a nurturing space.

Our Homes Are Designed With Memory Care In Mind

Large senior living communities play a vital and irreplaceable role in senior care. However, contrary to the institutionalized feeling of a large facility, residential care homes are designed with assisted living and memory care in mind. Memory care patients require familiarity, and by living in a home-like setting, they are more relaxed and less prone to memory care complications. Additionally, our homes only have one entrance, which is locked and monitored by our caregivers, so you don’t have to worry about your elderly loved one wandering. We are also continuously updating our homes with the latest fall prevention technology such as wheelchair ramps, bathroom safety equipment, etc. Here is an article detailing more about the benefits of residential care homes.

Activities To Strengthen The Brain

Specific activities have been proven to be beneficial in keeping the minds of memory care patients sharp and preventing further cognitive decline. At Audubon Care Homes, we plan activities for every day of the week – brain games, reminiscence therapy, puzzles, arts and crafts, chair exercises, games, dance therapy, music therapy, and group discussions led by a licensed professional family counselor. We believe preventing further memory degeneration is possible through physical activity, intellectual reinforcement, and socialization. Keeping our residents active and stimulated makes them happier and healthier, which is at the forefront of our mission and purpose.

 

Do We Offer Medical Care Services?

We have a licensed speech therapist, family counselor, and dance movement therapist on staff. We also work with several medical providers in the community who are happy to come to our homes to see residents. These include a nurse practitioner, med-pass nurse, podiatrist, dentist, home health aides, hospice, wound care, PT/OT/ST. We also invite any of our residents’ medical providers to come to the home to provide care. We can make accommodations for any medical provider to see your loved one on-site.
