Dementia Care

We offer specialized care for those Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other forms of memory loss in The Foose Center. Our team is specially trained to meet the individual needs of those with moderate to severe memory loss.

We are the only state certified Special Care Unit in the area. Some of the qualifications for this designation are extra staff training and ratio of residents to staff. Our specially designed living space provides a supportive environment for those living with cognitive challenges.

Our experienced staff understands the complexity of each stage of dementia and works to maintain dignity and individuality. Families have the peace of mind of knowing our caregivers are always close by to help, and the unit is secure for those at risk of wandering. Our activities department works closely with residents, to try to maintain a sense of self through daily programs specifically designed for those with dementia. We also offer memory care on all of our nursing neighborhoods for those who still need a little extra help, but may not be suffering from the same severity.

Let our staff help you decide if our special care neighborhood is the right fit for you or your loved one. Call our Admissions Office at 217-223-8717 for more information! Click here to learn about the other levels of care we can provide>
