Description of The Sylvestery of Vinson Hall Retirement Community
Our secure building features an award-winning layout, where residents move about freely through a continuous walkway. The floor-to-ceiling windows draw in natural light. Numerous courtyards invite residents to enjoy safe outdoor experiences.
Common areas are also calming areas, complete with a fireplace, inviting sitting spaces and a tranquil aquarium. In the dining room, our chef serves fresh, delicious meals made daily from scratch with original recipes. And there's always an open seat at our Compass Rose Cafe for loved ones to share meals and special occasions.
From your first visit you'll notice the devotion of our caregivers and staff. Our work is our passion, and it shows in the bonds we form with each resident.
With your help, we'll put together an individual service plan for your loved one, which includes assistance with daily activities and a check-in every hour. We spend time finding what is active and alive in your loved one and use it to enrich their lives. And whether it's a hug or a friendly chat, we know the little things that make the big difference.
Our staff excels at keeping residents engaged and fulfilled. We create activities based on individual abilities and group interests in areas such as music, art appreciation, baking, and history. Our social calendar typically features:
- Visits from professional entertainers
- Parties and cookouts
- Stretching and armchair workouts
- Movies and trivia contests
- Off-campus outings to restaurants and local attractions.
Often we find that even those who spend years in isolation in their homes enjoy newfound opportunities to explore and socialize without restriction. New friendships blossom here all the time.
While we are an active community, residents are never pressured to do more than they wish. They are welcome to spend time alone, socialize one-on-one or participate in group activities.
The Sylvestery is committed to using new technologies to enhance everyday life.
- Paro, an interactive, therapeutic seal, reduces stress and increases socialization
- Skype enables family members to speak face-to-face via teleconferencing
- The Multi-Sensory Room features a soothing array of images, sounds, textures and scents to help residents relax
Your family is always welcome to visit, share a meal, participate in activities, and accompany us on outings. You are vital to everything we do. By telling us about your loved one's life pre-memory loss, you help us make each interaction more personal and meaningful.
We're also here to help you through your difficult period of adjustment. You can call us any time or schedule meetings to address questions or concerns. Plus, you'll find support and comfort from our staff as well as other families who share your emotions.
With your loved one at the Sylvestery, you too can live a fulfilling life knowing you've made the best decision. You will once again have time to focus on being a loved one, not a caregiver.
