Linden View offers a total of 64 supportive living suites; 56 private studio suites for single persons, 8 one-bedroom suites for couples and 36 private dementia care rooms. Caring compassionate staff assist residents on a 24-hour, seven days a week basis with the professional support of LPNs.
There are also three dementia care cottages designed to provide assistance and residence for persons with Alzheimer's or other types of dementia. They are structurally designed with safety features specific to the needs of persons with dementia. Each side of the duplex has 6 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace and secure access to a fenced yard. Residents furnish their own rooms, making them feel more at home by surrounding themselves with items that are familiar to them. Residents 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 the Alberta Health Services Regional Access Centre, phone (403) 388-6380 (Lethbridge).
There are also five Community Support Beds available for short stays for a period up to two months for clients requiring respite, palliative or convalescence care.
