Country Home Memory Care
Morris Plains, NJ - Assisted Living, Memory Care
Community size: Large (26-100)
Country Home Memory Care is a vibrant assisted living community in Morris Plains, New Jersey. It is within likable Morris County which is part of the Garden State.
The Country Home has offered a safe, supportive, stimulating residential environment for seniors who can no longer live safely at home or need care that family can’t easily provide. In the beginning, we served a fairly healthy, independent group of seniors. More recently, we serve those with advancing symptoms of dementia and other memory care needs. Our small, home-like, family environment represents a welcome alternative to large “institutional” centers for those with increasing memory impairment. We aim to provide more “good days” and enhance the quality of life for all our residents, in their final years. Because of our lack of massive facilities, huge mortgage, and excessive management, we can offer this individualized memory care that is second to none, for 30-50% less than the large corporate centers. We offer high quality dementia care that more families can afford.
After months or years of debating the best care solution for your loved one, you have decided it is time for a residential home—one that provides the quality 24/7 care, safety, support and positive stimulation that your loved one needs and deserves—at a price you can afford. Visit other facilities, then enjoy a tour of The Country Home and spend some time with our management team. If you join us, The Country Home will assure the highest level of independent functioning and quality of life for your relative. You will have worry-free peace-of-mind, knowing you made the best possible decision. You may stay as closely involved with your loved one as you like, visiting anytime. Bring any questions, concerns, suggestions to our administrator or other staff so we can address them immediately.
Most caregivers for a loved one with advancing memory care needs, face “36 Hour Days,” stress, anxiety, exhaustion, frustration. Their physical and emotional health usually suffers; their relationships with other family members and friends often get neglected. If this sounds like your situation, we understand. You need relief. You need a break. The Country Home offers you both short and long-term solutions!
With a capacity for only 38 residents, The Country Home is small enough to ensure individualized memory care, 24/7, but large enough to offer your loved one a variety of senior companions. We truly offer a family home environment--the management team has over 54 years collective experience at The Country Home!
AS WE STRIVE TO OFFER THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE EVERY DAY, OUR CORE VALUES GUIDE US:
- Respect: We respect the uniqueness, the changing needs and the personal wishes of every individual resident and their family members. This impacts all areas: personal care, health care, diet, therapeutic recreation, religious activities, etc.
- Privacy: We afford each resident as much privacy as they require, whether in their own rooms, in common areas, on the telephone or while visiting with friends, family or health care providers. All medical and other personal records are kept confidential, in full compliance with HIPAA guidelines. Visitors who inquire about residents must realize we can’t release information to those not authorized to have it.
- Safety: Many of our residents face high risk for falls, have visual impairment, limited mobility, and deteriorating short-term memory. Many have wandered dangerously in the community before arriving at The Country Home. With those physical and mental challenges in mind, our physical environment, staff training and staffing patterns reflect great concern for resident safety, 24/7. Two senior staff members actually reside in The Country Home. In any potential emergency, we have ample back-up instantly available to supplement on-duty staff.
- Independence: To the greatest extent possible, we encourage the independence and self-reliance of our residents. It might be faster, for example, for an aide to brush a resident’s hair or put on their sweater but if the resident can do that, at his or her own pace, we encourage them to do so for as long as possible. Staff always has to balance independence with safety, however.
