Six specially created apartments fill the gap between independent living and assisted living for people in early stages of dementia. The Hillside option allows the resident to continue to live with a loved one within a secured area. Residents can enjoy her/his own living area, bathroom and kitchenette – as well as community space and dining room. The Hillside Unit has its own nursing station, staffed at all times and overseen by a licensed nurse so loved ones can come and go freely without the worry of finding caregivers while they are out.
Hillside is a welcome choice – a middle option – for people whose onset of memory impairment need not require their loss of privacy. It is a perfect setting for individuals who want to maintain their independence yet enjoy the company of their peers.
