Description of Inn At Deerfield
We provide "emotional support"
for seniors with dementia, in a home like setting.
A Licensed Supported Residential Care Home for Elders with Memory Disorders Located in the beautiful Country Setting of rural Deerfield, New Hampshire. The Inn at Deerfield was established to provide quality care to elders with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
A great deal of research went into the interior design of the building. Colors were chosen that cause the least disturbance to failing sight. The lighting choice was made to decrease shadows. The carpeting is non-impervious to urine and is of a subdues pattern. The residents benefit from the wide halls and doorways.
The building features 14 double and 4 single rooms decorated in soft, calming colors. Residents may bring their own furniture, if it will fit safely in the rooms or the Inn has furnishings that can be utilized. Each room has an armoire-style closet with locking doors for day to day clothing. The families are asked to exchange clothing with the seasons as space is limited. Outer clothing is stored in a designated closet so that it is immediately available in an emergency evacuation situation.
There is a multifunction dining room for meals and activities, as well as a small dining room where families and friends can enjoy special occasions with their loved ones. Two large living rooms provide space for socializing and spontaneous interaction among the residents.
The facility has 6 full handicap accessible bathrooms, one is equipped with a tub and the others have showers. There are 2 outside enclosed yards.. One of them features barbeque grill for seasonal grilling, and a gazebo that has been provided with electricity for the residents' warm weather pleasure.
In addition, there is the availability of podiatry, neuropsychiatry, pharmacy, home health services and hospice on an as needed basis.
