Medical Conditions


The medical component is for clients who require medical monitoring, therapy services at a maintenance level, and moderate to maximum assistance with activities of daily living.

Cognitive impairments

The dementia component of the program is designed to meet the needs of participants suffering from some degree of memory loss, confusion, and disorientation or impaired judgment, who need a supervised, structured, and caring environment that compensates for cognitive, physical, and social deficits. The goal of this component is to promote maximum cognitive physical and psychological functioning in an effort to assists participants to maintain dignity, self-respect, and independence.

Psychiatric disorders

The psychiatric component is designed to meet the needs of older adults with major mental illness who need a transition program or a period of consolidation and support as they return to the community. The program offers multidisciplinary support and collaboration with community care providers. Our experience has shown that older adults can make significant gains in this structured program in the maintenance of emotional stability and prevention of further hospitalizations.
