Chateau Poet’s Corner In Pleasant Hill, California
For the owners of the Chateaus’ Tom MacDonald and Don Engle, Alzheimer’s treatment and care is all about enhancing the daily lives of their residents. While medication has been proven to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, an equally effective treatment is the quality of environment. And for the past 15 years, experts at ‘Our House’ at The Chateaus have specialized in developing an Alzheimer care facility with a remedial environment proven to qualitatively improve residents’ lives when measured in terms of fewer injuries, less medication required, less sleep disturbances, and less wandering.
We are proud to offer the most current treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. For this reason, our dedicated caregivers receive ongoing education and training in addition to working with local Alzheimer’s associations in order to provide up to date, informative care for our residents. Trust is a vital aspect of any dementia care plan and at ‘Our House’ every effort is made to create a constant companion in one staff member. This allows residents to create and build a relationship that will advance physical, emotional and social well being. At Carlton Senior Living, the Alzheimer’s care is personal as well as individual and consistent.
Each ‘Our House’ Communities specializes in individual resident care and personal attention. Through experience, we know that memory triggers are critical for patients with memory loss, which is why we utilize as many links as possible in the daily life of our residents; each resident’s room, for example, is clearly identified by various family photos and mementos.
