Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio Live With

New Award-Winning Residence for Those with Alzheimer ’s Disease
CH_cover_pic_on_web
 
State-of-the-art assisted living residence on Scottish Home campus will offer compassionate, effective memory care following ribbon-cutting on July 13.
 
The Caledonian House, a new assisted living home specially designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease, will offer the best in memory care.  They had their official ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 13 at 11:00 a.m. on the Scottish Home campus, 2800 Des Plaines Avenue, North Riverside. The Illinois Saint Andrew Society, the oldest charity in Illinois, will continue its culture of caring with the Caledonian House. The state-of-the-art residence accommodates 20 residents in a personalized and home-like, yet very high tech design. Even prior to its opening, the facility was honored with the British Consul General’s prestigious 2016 Award for Innovation.
 
“You may be surprised to learn that an organization founded in the 19th Century received an innovation award in the 21st Century,” said Gus Noble, President of the Illinois Saint Andrew Society. “How did we do it? We used our 100 years’ experience of providing quality, person-centered care to build the Caledonian House, a bold innovation where infrastructure and operations are designed to improve the quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other kinds of dementia.”
 
As well as being architecturally innovative, the Caledonian House is operationally innovative. While standard, institutional models of care employ three different workers for personal care-giving, food service and housekeeping, caregivers in the Caledonian House are cross-trained to provide all 3 services. This holistic approach features consistent resident-caregiver interaction that increases meaningful interaction between resident and caregiver and, in turn, this increases the bonds of familiarity and trust that encourage residents to remain active, engaged and fulfilled.
 
“We have also formed a partnership with Concordia University Chicago’s Kott Center for Gerontology to document the Caledonian House’s architectural, operational and philosophical innovations in order to develop a new model of memory care – one that can be replicated throughout the caregiving community,” Noble added.
 
Taking cues from Scottish and Midwestern architectural design, the new two-story building will look, feel and function as a home rather than an institution. There are no long, disorienting corridors. Each of the Caledonian House’s two floors is home to ten residents, all with private bedrooms and full bathrooms, all opening onto a great room where activities take place by the fire side. At the heart of the home is an open kitchen that fills the air with the wonderful aromas of cooking and baking. The Caledonian House is focused on the future and leading in a vital new model of care.
 
The Caledonian House is located on the Scottish Home campus. This is a unique senior living community nestled in five park-like acres just a few miles west of downtown Chicago. It is part of the first and oldest charity in Illinois, which was established in 1845. The Scottish Home has always emphasized warm community, close bonds between residents and staff, and strong links to family and friends. Both assisted living and healthcare options are available in a warm, loving environment.
 
Our philosophy of one-on-one care is inspired by the comfort of home and the warmth of family.  Research shows that just such an environment fosters the best outcomes for people in memory care.
 
The Alzheimer’s Association projects that, by 2030, 16 million Americans will live with the disease – a four-fold increase that could cost a trillion dollars each year. The Caledonian House is a practical response to this challenge, providing a haven of expert care deeply informed by a century of experience.

Recent Comments From Attendees

Thank you so for your visit to Dubuque.  I want to tell you first thing this morning that you continue to inspire all of us to bring our “A” game with seniors.  One thing was clear after your presentation.  There is no short supply of how we can serve!  I will never forget you story of the chicken who kept losing her feathers only to find a secret society at the bottom of the cliff.  You had all of them from Dubuque in front of you yesterday and you inspired each and every one of them.

Thank YOU for the work that you do nationwide.   It became clear to me yesterday that when our well runs low for the work that we do, who is there to fill us up?  You are!  Thank you so very much.  I am good to go for a long, long time after the inspiration, encouragement and “just get it done” approach that you model for all of us.

Many blessings and continued success.

Lori has a true gift for connecting with her audience on an emotional level.  All participants were truly engaged and evaluations of her presentations were very high.  She is a gifted speaker as well as a wonderful person.

Lori is an incredibly dynamic and compassionate speaker. By sharing her own story, with all of its highs and lows, she made it okay to both laugh and cry – and our audience did both! Lori recognizes that life with dementia still has with meaning, and we admired her work to restore dignity and humanity to people with dementia and their families. It’s an encouraging change in how we talk about caregiving!

First of all, Tracy, myself and our Nurse Manager, Jacque, wanted to express our appreciation for your visit to Dubuque for our Dementia Summit! We found your talks truly inspiring and benefited immensely from your passion and knowledge on Dementia. Your personal stories were so touching, thank you for sharing…one of our family members also attended the conference and was so moved by the day’s events that she was still in tears as we were heading home!

As we continue with our dementia friendly initiative, we wanted to add to our training materials with some of the additional resources that you shared. Do we have your permission to add your resources to the resource section of the manual that we leave with businesses? We would not change a thing…we would leave everything in its entirety…your name/website/contact info all on there and just copy the handout with your “Alzheimer’s Speaks” header on the top. Please let us know how you feel about this!  (The Answer – Absolutely YES!)
