A point of particular pride for Benton House is the separate, exclusive neighborhood dedicated to serving residents experiencing Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementia.
A Unique Neighborhood for Unique Needs
A point of particular pride for our communities is our separate, exclusive area dedicated to residents facing memory loss. We call it the Beacon neighborhood. Bright and beautiful, it offers assisted living plus an innovative open design with homelike comforts—but it is also key-pad protected.
A Unique Neighborhood-Innovative Design
Bright and beautiful, our Beacon Neighborhood is still assisted living but features an innovative design developed with passion and purpose. The large open plan offers residents the reassurance of knowing others are around if needed but also the space to be themselves. This includes free access to an enclosed courtyard where they can enjoy gardening, walking or simply relaxing in a favorite rocking chair. So while families rest easy knowing the neighborhood is key-pad protected residents can truly feel free to move around their home.
Next, building on studies showing a non-institutional environment is better suited for those experiencing Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementia; our memory care neighborhood is designed to be a residential as possible. Great care is taken in the selection of furnishings, lighting and color palettes. The result is living spaces that are comfortable, functional and beautiful.
We take great pride in the “wow” factor we often get when people visit our Beacon neighborhood for the first time. We take even greater pride in watching residents enjoy the benefits of our innovative design.
A Unique Lifestyle-Daily Life
As many caregivers can attest, familiar routines can be reassuring to those experiencing Alzheimer’s Disease or other memory loss. But as the saying goes “variety is the spice of life.” Benton House seeks to blend both of these needs through our Daily Life.
In practice this means while certain aspects of daily living, such as dining, fitness or relaxation, occur at roughly at the same time each day, we seek to vary the activities and events within those time periods so each day feels both familiar and fresh.
Ensuring that daily life remains fun and eventful is the responsibility of the Beacon Coordinator, a person dedicated exclusively to the service of the Beacon neighborhood residents.
