Peggy Kelly House was the third and final care center that we moved mom into as she progressed through the final years of her battle with Alzheimer's. The care and attention there was far and above anything we had delt with before. The nurses and caretakers got to know her way beyond anything we had previously experienced. There were only about ten residents and at least that many caretakers, she was well cared for. We were extremely pleased with the Peggy Kelly House.
At Peggy Kelly House we recognize the difficult journey of those with early to middle stage Alzheimer’s and other memory related diseases. We offer a secure environment with dementia specific care.
We encourage our residents to continue to make choices, but in a more secure environment. They are involved in everyday activities they can feel successful at. Our entire community is one level, without stairs or elevators for residents to manage.
Because of the nature of memory loss, our staff receives continuous training specializing in caring for residents with memory related issues, including understanding their disease process, proper communication, interaction, redirection, activities.
Memory boxes allow each resident to decorate and display pictures and memorabilia from their life. This triggers pleasant memories and gives a snap shot of their history.
