Eisenberg Assisted Living offers specialized services specifically tailored to meet the needs of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. This special care unit is a separate secured unit located on our third floor. The Keepsake unit has added safety and monitoring (e.g., doors equipped with alarms, special lighting, resident whereabouts checks) and unique physical environments to foster greater independence, such as secure outdoor areas.
The Keepsake unit provides more supervision, structure and cues designed to maximize the abilities of people with living with cognitive impairments. It offers additional staff (e.g., Program Director), specialized staff training, family education programs, and social activities geared to each resident’s abilities and interests. It also offers activities and approaches that are designed to minimize behavior symptoms such as agitation, and maximize the achievements and well-being of residents with memory loss disorders. Keepsake differs in the level of care provided along the continuum of a person’s dementia. Eisenberg’s Keepsake unit is committed to providing care until the person with dementia needs skilled care (nursing home care), whereas others are only staffed and equipped.
