Special Care for Those Suffering Dementia/Alzheimer’s

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia takes patience and effort. As a qualified memory care facility, Laurel View Village is well-equipped to care for patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s-related diseases. Located near Johnstown, PA, our memory care center is committed to providing individualized care for all of our patients. We understand that memory disorders affect individuals differently. That’s why we always go above and beyond to ensure the care we provide is offered with each of our patient’s best interests in mind.

Reflections and The Arbor are two secure households at Laurel View Village dedicated to providing care 24/7 for  those suffering dementia or Alzheimer’s-related diseases. Reflections is a part of Personal Care, while The Arbor is an extension of our Skilled Nursing Care residence. Both are safe, cheerful environments with specially trained staff.

At Laurel View Village we recognize that every person is different, and that the symptoms of memory related diseases vary. We work with families and physicians to tailor individual programs of care to help each resident cope with their memory loss and the overwhelming feelings of confusion, fear, and frustration that usually accompany the disease.

Memory SupportIn Reflections and The Arbor, we provide help with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, eating, etc.) combined with restorative therapies scheduled throughout each day. These activities are based on each resident’s personal habits and preferences. We try to help each resident remain as mobile, alert, and active as possible.

Family visits are encouraged. We understand the demanding schedules of modern families, so we have no restrictions on visiting hours.

Reflections and The Arbor are staffed 24/7 with dedicated people who are carefully chosen and specifically trained to help individuals with memory loss. The techniques and therapies are designed to engage and reassure our residents to help them maintain as much independence as possible.

Both Reflections and The Arbor offer comfortable spaces for group activities as well as places for private relaxation. Both have beautiful outdoor patio/gardens for residents to enjoy summer sunshine. Seasonal parties, weekly religious services, concerts, choirs, short drives in the countryside, and many more activities are offered.

Reflections offers one-and-a-half-room suites with full bath or private rooms with full bath. Residents are encouraged to furnish their rooms with their own furniture, personal photos, and familiar decor.

The Arbor offers private and semi-private rooms, each with a bay window, full or half bath, and ample closet space. Housekeeping services and laundry as well as all food and medication are provided in both Reflections and The Arbor.
