I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

When new dawn opened in July under the original executive director it was Awesome. friendly, smiling, happy, helpful, organized .Was so glad I moved my loved one in. Well this has all changed of course. the first executive director left. along with lots of great caretakers and nurses. Now your lucky if they answer a phone call. some of the caretakers now are loud and obnoxious, and are on personal cell phones frequently. Don't think the rooms have been properly cleaned since it opened. Already have had a rate increase even though we were guaranteed rate for one year. ( some pay up to $80,000 per year ) and loved ones have to come often to take care of personal needs

Description of New Dawn Memory Care of Colorado Springs

______________________________________________

New Dawn Memory Care of Colorado Springs' innovative community design, purposeful activities program and comprehensive medical team redefine how seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia are cared for.

Our location just off Powers Boulevard and Briargate Parkway 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.

Featured Amenities

Our community features 16 bedroom cottages whose layout is designed to invoke a homelike setting. All our residents have private suites which feature a private, walk-in bathroom. Outside the suites 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 Colorado Springs apart from other senior communities is our unique design. Each cottage has circular open space so residents may feel free to roam without becoming frustrated. Off our sun porch is a secured backyard so seniors may walk outside without the risk of wandering. We have also included a “participatory” design into the kitchen and laundry room so our residents may perform household activities if they desire.

Available Services

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 address 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 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 Colorado Springs redefines how seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia should be cared for.
