Collingswood provides a secure and nurturing setting for individuals in various stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
We’ve created a neighborhood that is truly home to both our residents and their family members who are always welcome to visit. Our combination of qualified caregivers, comprehensive innovative treatments and specialized attention creates a care setting like no other.
The safety of our residents is our foremost priority. Our high ratio of caregivers to residents allows for more one-on-one interaction, increased supervision, and greater peace of mind for family and loved ones. We provide 24-hour skilled nursing services and structured daily activities designed to meet the needs of those with memory impairment.
While many remembrances can be more difficult to recall we know that many important recollections can be ‘triggered’ with the right support such as cueing by staff that enables the resident to do things for him or herself and using familiar music, foods, and smells to recall happy moments. Reducing stress by keeping routines and caregivers consistent is also important.
