I Love This Company!

Arthur’s Residential Care has sponsored and supported the Memory Cafe Concept from the beginning I brought it to the United States.  The minute I suggested they become involved in launching one they jumped with both feet in the water and have never looked back. ACR not only graciously gave us space for meetings, but provided treats and additional facilitators as our one group expanded to three.  They have been so progressive in staff dementia training and creating moments of joy for both their residents and their families; which I must admit brings a smile to my face and a warmth to my heat every time.  I am so blessed to witness their work.  Kudos Arthur’s Residential Care!

An Important message from our friend Meryl Comer:

Only twice in my twenty plus years as an Alzheimer’s caregiver has a doctor ever asked whether I was doing okay. Yet my husband would have never made the clinic appointment on time if I had not gotten up extra early to bathe, dress, feed, manage his resistance and drive him there. Now here’s a chance to be heard!

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic want to learn what matters most to you when you go to the doctor with your loved one. They need volunteers for an online focus group who are current or former caregivers for a loved one with dementia.

Click here to learn more about this important Mayo Clinic caregiver study asking what matters to you when you go to the doctor with a loved one.

Study participants will be asked to join an online focus group and answer several questions over a week and a half posted by the moderator. Participants can choose to remain anonymous. Their goal is to help healthcare providers better support and communicate with caregivers by learning:

  • How health care providers can best help caregivers provide optimal care to loved ones while maintaining their own health.
  • How involved caregivers want to be their loved ones’ healthcare.
  • What the ideal “care team” looks like.

Your opinions are critical to improving the experience for all caregivers when they accompany loved ones to doctor’s appointments. Let’s not miss this opportunity to make doctors tune into what matters to us.

Chicago Welcomes State-Of-The-Art Alzheimer’s Care Community

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio Live With

Gus Noble with the Caledonian House

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.
