The Retreat at Encore
Secure Living in a Dementia Unit can provide a freedom and independence that a dementia-related diagnosis can take away. Gone are the worries and fears of your loved one struggling to make sense of a world that may no longer make sense to them; one that is dramatically changing beyond reason and control. Our secure unit at Encore – The Retreat – provides a respite for not only the resident, but for the family, as well. The secure environment is designed to control outside noises, distractions, and traffic that might otherwise cause confusion and exacerbate a resident’s symptoms. The staff assigned to The Retreat have consistent and regular schedules which help to familiarize them with the residents and allow the residents to settle into a familiar routine. Specially designed activities address changing perception, altered cognition, and current functional levels of those living with dementia-related conditions. While we cannot control the progression and prognosis of this disease, we understand the value in providing an environment closely fitted to your loved one’s need for safety and comfort. Dementia can rob a person of many things. Our staff is here to help lessen the impact of those losses and to build on the moments we have today.
