30 Supportive Living Suites
10-Bed Dementia Care Cottage
30 Long Term Care Suites
Pembina Village offers seniors multiple levels of support and the opportunity to age in place. This facility has three distinct levels of care; Long Term Care, Dementia Care and Supportive Housing and shares unique layout space with Alberta Health Services Public Health, Dynalife Lab and a doctor’s office.
There are 30 private long term care suites, each with a private bathroom and wheelchair accessible shower. Residents are provided with a hospital style bed, night table, dresser and side chair. They are encouraged to bring some of their own belongings such as a chair, pictures, lamp, bedspread, etc. to personalize their room.
There is also one 10-bed dementia care cottage at Pembina Village, a unique attached duplex designed to create a home-like setting. Each side of the duplex has 5 bedrooms, a living room with fireplace, kitchen, and secure access to the fenced yard. Clients furnish their own rooms, making them feel more at home by surrounding themselves with items that are familiar to them. Clients are included in the events of daily living to the extent that they are accustomed and able.
The care component of the dementia care program is based more on a social rather than a medical model of care. Personal autonomy and competencies are emphasized. Residents can participate in daily activities associated with a home-like environment. These kinds of opportunities are difficult, if not impossible, to offer in large care centres.
Key elements of this model of care are:
- Creation of a familiar, home-like environment
- Combining privacy of accommodation with the security of around-the-clock staffing
- Use of familiar household routines for resident activities
- Staff serve as role models to engage residents in activities
Admissions are coordinated through Alberta Health Services (780) 496-1300.
Pembina Village also offers 30 supportive living suites that are partially subsidized by the Evergreens Foundation. Each suite has its own kitchen, a spacious three-piece bathroom, ample storage, and large bright windows. Tenants are encouraged to bring some of their own belongings to personalize their room. Optional services include meals, housekeeping, laundry and parking. Apartments are available to all seniors in the Evansburg area.
