• Where Home Is
     
A Caring Team of Professionals

Waterford_HandonFace-300x199

We have taken great care to assemble a team of professionals who are specifically trained to care for our unique residents. Our memory care residence is designed to help residents feel at home – unrestricted and free to move about the facility. One of the many steps we take to ensure safety is our 24‐hour monitoring of everyone entering or exiting the facility with secured exit doors and proper signage.

As you read through you undoubtedly sense that we are driven by the will to serve. We are passionate about caring for your loved one and our team is focused on making them feel comfortable and secure in their home. I feel strongly that although our list of services and amenities rivals any other facility, our highly trained team of caregivers is unmatched.

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.

About The Waterford at Wilderness Hills

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

OUR PRIORITY: Safe & Secure Environment Above All!

IT’S WHERE HOME IS for your loved one and … for us as well.

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

We understand. As a matter of fact, we more than just ‘understand’, we feel your pain and empathize with your concerns. Watching someone you care so deeply about fade into another reality is excruciatingly painful. It’s part of life’s journey, but sometimes we have great difficulty processing the outcome. Too often those who cared for us all of their lives are now in need of our care. Sadly, most families are not able to provide that level of care. While we can’t control the process of dementia, we will do whatever we can to ensure comfort and safety. It might be the least we can do and we take this responsibility very seriously.

We want to assure you that our caring goes beyond providing a safe place with a list of amenities. We welcome and embrace your loved one into our family. We call them ‘residents’ not patients. We don’t consider them houseguests because they are not. This is their home. It’s where they live now and it is our responsibility to make sure they feel that way irrespective of their condition.

We want you to know that you are not placing your loved one in a facility. You are allowing us to be your extended family. We work very hard to ensure that our residents are surrounded and cared for by a team of professionals. 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.
