About The
Waterford at Wilderness Hills

We specialize in skilled, individualized personal care for residents with Dementia or Alzheimer’s conditions: memory impairment, disorientation and behavioral redirection.

OUR PRIORITY: A safe & secure home for your loved one.

Is this a place for my Mom, Dad, Husband, Wife, or other loved one?

We understand. As a matter of fact, we more than just ‘understand’- we feel and empathize with your pain and concerns. Watching someone you care so deeply about fade into another reality is excruciating. Unfortunately for some, it is a part of life’s journey, and it is difficult to process the outcome and reality. Too often those who cared for us all of our lives, now need us to care for them. While we can’t control the process of dementia, we will do whatever we can to ensure our residents are not only safe, but cared for and respected.

We want to assure you that our caring goes beyond simply being a safe place with a list of amenities- we welcome and embrace your loved one into our family. They are our residents, not patients. They are not our houseguests, but we are theirs. This is their home, and it our responsibility to ensure that irrespective of their condition.

You are not placing your loved one in a facility- you are allowing us to be your extended family. We put the utmost emphasis on carefully selecting and training our team members in our culture and beliefs- we operate under a system that focuses on customer service, commitment to dignity, and compassion towards our residents.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to caring, each resident is unique and needs a different kind of attention. We pay close attention to details, medical needs, personality type or other unique conditions to provide our skilled, individualized personal care. We are ultimately here to serve your loved one.

“The state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect.“

Our employees are hired and trained in the spirit of human dignity and caring. It is what we look for in our recruiting process and how we follow up with ongoing training of our staff. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to caring. Each resident is unique and while there are lots of amenities and services, we always pay attention to details, medical needs, personality type or any other unique condition that requires our attention. Our residents may not always be aware of how much we care or how special they are. Or, maybe they are? It makes no difference to us. We are here to serve your loved one.
