At Pipestone Place Assisted Living, we fully understand that caring for a loved one with dementia and short-term memory loss can be difficult. Making the decision to find an assisted living community for your loved one is always difficult and finding the right place to suit their personal and memory care needs can feel like a huge responsibility.
The transition to an assisted living facility can without a doubt take its toll on both residents and families alike. At Pipestone Place, we will do everything we can to make sure your family feels at ease and empowered in your decision.
24/7 Support for Your Loved one
Navigating a change in surroundings while dealing with dementia or memory loss can be confusing, but you can rest assured that we are here to make the process as smooth as possible for your loved one.
Our residents receive support in all areas, from personal care and activities of daily living to their individual memory care needs. Every aspect of your loved one’s care plan will be highly personalized to suit their routines and unique preferences.
And of course, each of our residents’ care plans are diligently reviewed at regular intervals to account for their ever-evolving needs. We can guarantee that your loved one’s daily routine will remain optimized, allowing them to live happily and well-supported at all times.
Dignity and Respect
Opting for residential assisted living offers you and your loved one a best-of-both-worlds solution, with around the clock assistance combined with greater autonomy than other senior living options.
We understand that each of our residents are wonderfully unique, with their own personal needs and wishes, which is why we believe in centering families in the creation of care plans – after all, you know them best!
By offering regular personal care planning meetings, you can get that all-important peace of mind that your loved one’s individual needs are being met, and that they are being well cared for with the dignity and respect they deserve. During our meetings, you are always welcome to offer suggestions, ask questions and involve yourself in your family member’s care.
At Pipestone Place we see ourselves as a family, and the last thing we want is for our residents to feel lonely or unsupported. Aside from that basic health and personal care support, we recognize the need for an enriching social circle. By offering a range of social events as well as cognitive and recreational activities, we will ensure your loved one feels part of a supportive and uplifting community.
Autonomy and Independence
By choosing residential assisted living at Pipestone Place, your loved one will be able to retain as much independence as possible. The loss of autonomy when dealing with dementia can be really difficult, which is why we always strive to ensure our residents are supported in remaining as independent as is safely possible.
We can support your loved one in daily errands like laundry, housekeeping and medication management, while providing transport services that will allow them to get out and about in our wonderful local community, just as they would if they were living independently.
By keeping a close eye on their care plan and adapting to their needs as they develop, we can effectively ensure your loved one receives all the help they need to stay happy, healthy and safe, while retaining as much autonomy as possible.
As a family-owned and operated residential assisted living community, we look forward to welcoming your family into ours and supporting you every step of the way. We pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach, prioritizing both the needs of both our residents and their family members to make for an all-round positive and empowering experience.
We believe in the importance of involving our residents’ families in their day-to-day care, and our managing owner is on site daily to offer education, reassurance and compassionate support. Family will always be at the heart of the Pipestone Place ethos.
Emotional Support for Caregivers
We understand the struggles and emotions you may face when caring for a loved one with dementia, and are here to support and guide you throughout. Our family-centred approach means we recognize your needs, too.
Just as we welcome your input in your loved one’s care, we are always here to answer your questions and put your mind at ease.
Handing over care of your family member to professional caregivers who are strangers is naturally daunting, but we won’t be strangers for long. Our mission is to ensure our residents’ families feel happy, welcomed and secure in their decision.
We are always here to listen to your worries and concerns, or even just to have a chat! Perhaps you’re apprehensive about how your relationship with your loved one will change, or how you will cope with their developing symptoms. As memory care experts, we understand all of your worries and are here to offer a listening ear alongside all the expert support and advice you need.
What’s more, through our friendly and sociable community, you can meet with other families dealing with dementia, forming the vital support network we all need in life, whatever our personal struggles.
Welcome to our Family
Above all else, we truly want you to know that by choosing Pipestone Place, your whole family will become an extension of our own. As a smaller residential assisted living community, we have the privilege of being able to truly get to know the families we serve, and we pride ourselves on our sense of community and genuine care, support and compassion.
We will be here to offer your loved one support night and day, while allowing you to stay in the loop and always get involved in their personalized care plan. Our aim is to provide an enriching and attentive home-from-home for your loved one, while simultaneously providing you with the peace of mind you need and deserve as a family caregiver.
