Description of New Dawn Memory Care of Aurora
New Dawn Memory Care of Aurora's innovative community design, purposeful activities program and comprehensive medical team redefine how seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia are cared for. We boast a 1:4 staffing ratio, one of the highest in the area, which means your loved one will receive one-on-one care. Our location just off I-225 makes our community easy to reach when you want to stop in for a visit.
At New Dawn Memory Care, we specialize exclusively in caring for individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of memory loss, especially in their later stages. We see our communities as a preferred alternative to long-term institutional care for the elderly.
Our community features a layout that is designed to invoke a homelike setting. Residents have private suites, which includes a private walk-in bathroom, so they can have a place to call their own. Outside their suite are common areas that include an open-style kitchen, activity rooms, welcoming living and dining areas, and a sun porch.
What sets New Dawn Memory Care of Aurora's community apart from others is its design. Each cottage has circular open spaces so residents may feel free to roam without becoming frustrated. Off the sun porch is a secured backyard so they may walk outside without the risk of wandering. We have also included a “participatory” design into the kitchen and laundry room, which allows our residents to perform household activities if they desire.
Every day, we offer a full range of activities through our Cognitive Action Therapy Techniques program, which is designed to fight cognitive decline. These activities may include recreating a beach setting complete with warm sand and sounds of seagulls or cooking a favorite recipe in the kitchen. We also offer music therapy that has our residents singing or playing instruments.
So we may provide the highest quality of care needed to combat the unique health care challenges that Alzheimer's and dementia-related illnesses pose, we have a comprehensive on-site medical staff. A nurse is on site 24 hours a day, and a medical director is also on staff. All residents receive a thorough physical along with mental and physical assessments before joining our community to ensure we can develop a care plan that enhances their quality of life.
With our innovate community design and state-of-the-art activities program, New Dawn Memory Care of Aurora redefines how seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia should be care for.
