Description of Heritage of Overland Park
Here at Heritage of Overland Park, we offer the very best Alzheimer's and dementia care and services available. As a dedicated provider of memory care services, our community has been designed from the ground up to be a safe, secure and comforting environment for individuals facing the daily challenges presented by memory loss. All services provided by our professionally trained staff are overseen by our Medical Director.
From the assistance provided by our compassionate staff members to the delicious meals prepared fresh each day in our family-style kitchen, we overlook no details when caring for the seniors residing at our community.
Different from the larger senior living communities, our community is broken into three smaller homelike residences. Each "home" can accommodate up to 16 residents and comes with its own secured courtyard and memory garden. In addition, our homes have their own family-style kitchen, numerous lounge areas, a dining room and sun porch.
Accommodations within each home consist of a private studio apartment with private bathroom. Apartments are just large enough to allow family and friends ample space when visiting, but small enough to help prevent residents from feeling either confused or overwhelmed. Residents of Heritage of Overland Park can also take advantage of the activity rooms located within each home.
Throughout each day, residents have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and events. These events center around the Six Dimensions of Wellness Model and can include Yoga, Bible studies, live music, creative expression and animal therapy, to name a few.
Because we specialize in memory care, each resident within our community receives individually tailored services. We take into account each senior's personal history and preferences, and we encourage our caregivers to spend time with residents and develop friendships. Staff members are on-site around the clock to provide assistance as needed, which include help with dressing, personal hygiene, medication management and more.
For excellent memory care in a homelike environment, Heritage of Overland Park is the right choice.
