The Verandah at Graywood Opens Memory Care in Lake Charles

New Wing Design Promotes Comfort And Security For Memory Care Residents


LAKE CHARLES, LA (November 8th, 2018) – Lake Charles residents in need of memory care programs for dementia or Alzheimer’s can now look tothe award-winning independent and assisted living community, The Verandah at Graywood, which just announced preleasing at their new Memory Care neighborhood opening in February 2019.

As more and more modern seniors are choosing resort-like retirement living options with luxurious amenities, convenient services, and bright and spacious living areas, many are also looking for a community that can provide continuity through the changes they experience, including the option to transition from independent living to assisted living or memory care. The Verandah at Graywood’s specialized memory care neighborhood ensures that residents who need broader services and a safer environment have everything they need without having to endure the stress of a move and acclimation to a new community.

The state-of-the-art memory care neighborhood is designed to enrich the lives of residents by addressing their physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and cognitive needs. Residents are encouraged to express themselves, provide feedback, learn and grow, and develop new relations in a safe and nurturing environment. Aromatherapy, music therapy, opportunities for socialization, life skills stations, and low-impact exercise classes are just a few of the amenities and activities residents in the memory care wing at The Verandah at Graywood can access at their leisure. Understanding the importance of reminiscence, the community is often filled with comforting smells – like the smell of fresh baked pie – and music from residents’ favorite decades.

The Verandah at Graywood designed their personal care services with the resident in mind: the routine he or she has established at home is the routine they can expect in their home on our memory care wing. Whether they prefer to shower or bathe, what time they like to eat, and how much assistance they need are just a few of the questions staff will ask to ensure all of their preferences and familiar routines are honored in the community. Services include assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing, and oral care, medication management, and health monitoring.

The memory care neighborhood at The Verandah at Graywood is very much integrated with the rest of the community, which means residents have full access to the salon, 24/7 gourmet dining options, fitness center, movie theater, tavern, art studio, library, chapel, fishing ponds, barbeque area, and computer center. Despite the convenience of all of these on-site amenities, residents often need to travel off-campus for shopping, appointments, and other commitments, so The Verandah at Graywood provides free transportation to and from any local destination.

The Verandah at Graywood offers it all: a modern community, deluxe amenities, beautiful grounds, and the option to age in place without leaving the community if new needs develop.
