Description of Colonial Gardens - Austin
From the moment you and your loved one arrive at our community, you can relax knowing you have finally found a partner in care. At Colonial Gardens, we have intentionally designed our homes to be smaller than non-personal dementia facilities. This smaller and more structured environment means Colonial Gardens of Austin provides a level of personalized care not seen in other communities. We are not designed to be a "cookie cutter" corporate business; we are driven by a mission to provide total care -- to the resident and the family.
Each home is situated on more than an acre of property, affording the residents a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy. Our landscaped yards continue around each community, allowing residents the freedom to wander or enjoy the flower, herb and vegetable gardens, relax on a bench and watch the birds and squirrels play.
Inside our homes you will notice a decor designed to match the history of our residents. Antique sideboards, calming colors and comfortable furniture are features of our homes, every item selected to compliment the residents' tastes. Our layout is structured to allow safe wandering -- residents are in sight of the staff and there are no long hallways to "get lost in." We want our homes to feel like home, for our residents and their visitors and we think you'll agree.
Our Austin staff prides itself on providing personalized care for your loved one. Our professional caregivers are trained to understand and respond to the behaviors associated with various types of dementia, including Alzheimer's, Vascular, Parkinson's, Frontal-Temporal, Lewy Body, Pick's, Huntington's and other more rare forms of dementia. Each caregiver receives an unprecedented 20 hours of classroom and virtual reality education. (The state requires two hours of training for certification.)
Our training, our education, our staff and our mission are only part of what makes Colonial Gardens of Austin different than the rest. Come by and see us; we think you'll agree -- Texas owned and Texas friendly. It makes all the difference.
