Community size: Large (26-100)
The ARC of Jacksonville, Hope Mills, and Dunn are special care facilities specifically designed for Alzheimer's residents. What is especially unique about the ARC communities is they are stand-alone buildings dedicated to the care of Alzheimer's and related dementia residents. The buildings are secure, giving the residents freedom to roam throughout the building, while still remaining in a safe and secure environment.
The first free-standing Alzheimer's and dementia facilities in the state of North Carolina with its' primary goal and mission being exclusively caring for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
The facilities are designed and renovated to fit the needs of this population. Its staff is specifically trained to deal with this disease. Recently The ARC has exclusively developed the Restorative Alzheimer’s Program, which is unique in its approach to Alzheimer's and dementia care.
Alzheimer’s Related Care has hallmarked itself as the leader in providing care for those individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
In order for us to fulfill this obligation to the residents and their families we have implemented the following programs.
The ARC has on-site employees, who are certified by the state of North Carolina, to provide accredited continuing education training to further enhance care for our residents as individual needs are identified. These employees are also an integral part of the Restorative Alzheimer’s Programming. This program is implemented in all three of our Alzheimer’s Related Care facilities.
Recently, Alzheimer’s Related Care has implemented the Internal Quality Assurance Survey program.
The Internal Quality Assurance Survey program consists of a Registered Nurse, with over 30 years as a Licensed Assisted Living Administrator, and other licensed professionals will arrive unannounced at an ARC facility to survey all areas of the facility’s operation. This includes nursing, housekeeping, dietary, activities, administration, medical records, and any other aspect of the day-to-day operation of our facilities. Based upon their findings, they will submit a written report to the owner of Alzheimer’s Related Care Corporation and work with facility staff on any areas they find requires attention. This survey will be conducted on a monthly basis. This will ensure we maintain our highest standard of quality of care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The ARC employs an licensed and trained Activity Director trained in providing programs for Alzheimer's residents.
We offer diverse and individualized activities programs geared to those with Alzheimer's disease. Individual activity care plans are created for each resident based on individual needs and abilities.
Activity programs range from one-on-one sensory stimulation to outings. All of our residents are involved in an activity program that has been developed for each of them related to their individualized activity assessment. Based upon each assessment, individual activities are needed to enhance and maintain mental awareness.
The ARC strives to provide a home-like atmosphere for all residents.
We offer cozy living rooms, pleasurable dining rooms, private and semi-private bedrooms. You are welcome to bring in your own familiar furnishings.
We have a large, open sitting area, TV room, offer barber and beauty shop services, activity room and an enclosed, secure courtyard where residents can enjoy being outside and still remain safe.
These accommodations allow the residents to maintain their independence while remaining in a safe environment.
