Philosophy of Care
The care provided to those with dementia must be individualized and reflect the individual’s concerns, life history, meaning, relationships, emotions, thoughts, current needs, strengths, and preferences.
Grand Brook and its employees adhere to the following core values:
Our Executive Directors are specifically trained in dementia care and 100% focused on your loved one. Our care model allows this position to act as more than a manager, they are also a caregiver. They keep careful watch over your loved one and communicate openly and honestly to you, the family member.
Our Executive Directors pride themselves in knowing each resident as an individual and understanding their needs and preferences. They are there to make sure your loved one’s requests are heard and honored.
Our nursing staff is more than trained RNs and LVNs. They are dementia care specialists. Each one has completed more than 40 hours of specific dementia care training. They have one priority: the well-being of your loved one. These highly trained nurses attend to the care of our residents 7 days a week. They are always just a call away and trained to handle most any problem.
From the first contact at the resident’s home for their initial assessment to the transition to our community, the nurse is there to manage the entire process. Our nursing staff is here to make this difficult transition easier on both your family and your loved one.
For families, our Executive Director and our nurses are only a phone call away. We understand that moving your loved one to one of our assisted living communities is a big decision. We are here to assist in any way we can. Feel free to call us whenever you have a question.
