Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Rae-Ann provides skilled, compassionate care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia at each of our nursing facilities in Westlake and Geneva and at our assisted living facility, the Belvedere of Westlake.

Most Rae-Ann staff members who work with Alzheimer’s and dementia residents have earned certification as a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP). Staff are well-trained on short-term and long-term memory to be able to recognize and address Alzheimer’s and dementia issues, approach these patients, and communicate with them effectively.

Resident care plans promote safety and socialization to improve and maximize residents’ quality of life.

Our new Waterside Memory Care unit at Rae-Ann Westlake offers private and semi-private accommodations in a completely secure setting for residents needing memory care support, including those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

The Belvedere features Belle Rive, a secure, special care “neighborhood” for individuals with memory loss. Higher staff ratios in an intimate setting provide a calm, comfortable environment.
