Safe Harbor Memory Care
Our Safe Harbor program is a unique, secure environment for those individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other dementia related disorders. Our philosophy is to provide compassionate memory care in Delaware.
This program offers support and direction in many forms to keep residents as independent as possible for as long as possible with dignity and reassurance. Our unique philosophy of care is focused on wellness and the enhancement of each individual resident’s ability to function optimally in a pleasant, supportive and caring environment. The specially-trained professionals that work in Safe Harbor use therapies that nurture our residents’ individuality while preserving their physical and cognitive abilities.
Safe Harbor features a homelike setting including a living room, kitchen, dining room, and inside “outside” porch. All of the resident suites, private or semi-private, have a private half bath. Our residents and families are encouraged to bring familiar furniture, photos and other accessories that will make their surroundings recognizable and comfortable.
For one monthly fee residents receive three nutrionally-balanced meals daily, activities, bathing and dressing services, medication administration, weekly housekeeping and linen service, all utilities and emergency response system with 24-hour nursing on-site.
In addition to verbal cueing and encouragement to motivate the resident to successfully perform daily activities, we simplify their choices by allowing the resident to use previous life skills to promote a feeling of self-worth.
The outside courtyard and patio are completely surrounded by an attractive privacy fence with locked gate. The circular path leads directly back into the building. These doors are also alarmed to alert staff when someone has entered the courtyard area so they can be closely monitored.
We have many wonderful activities throughout the campus which Safe Harbor residents may attend while being accompanied by staff or family. We believe that involvement in activities outside the Safe Harbor neighborhood allows for others to have a deeper understanding and acceptance of this affliction and see the delight and comfort that is afforded to enrich our resident’s lives.
