About The Verandah at Graywood
The Verandah at Graywood, which sits on 40 beautiful acres in the master-planned community of Graywood, will celebrate the grand opening of its new 27-suite Memory Care Neighborhood and 24 additional Assisted Living apartments on Friday, March 29. The expansion will grow the community to more than 212,000 square feet with a total of 80 independent living apartments, 20 independent living cottages and 40 assisted living apartments. Managed by family-owned Sunshine Retirement Living of Bend, Oregon, the award-winning community follows a Person-Centered Care philosophy, offering numerous amenities and services to support residents’ physical, social, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual needs at an affordable cost. Numerous amenities include: a wellness/fitness center, library, computer room, chapel, stocked fishing ponds, formal and casual dining rooms, large lounge and bar, arts studio, theater, beauty salon/barber shop, and a beautifully landscaped courtyard and garden. When construction is complete, the community will offer a seamless transition from one level of care to another depending on the individual needs of its residents.
The new Memory Care Neighborhood will feature an Active Living Program with specially trained care professionals offering gentle touches and calming interactions and providing reassurances throughout the day to enhance caregiver-resident bonds, increase a sense of security and decrease agitation. The caring staff also encourages self-sufficiency by engaging the residents in daily activities to help stimulate memories of past daily activities. The Memory Care Neighborhood will also offer many advanced services, which medical research has shown to benefit people with dementia, Alzheimer’s and other memory-related diseases. An innovative, 24/7 dining program will include meals recommended by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and the MIND Diet Program, which may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, and may help maintain cognitive function. Additional amenities include: indoor and outdoor Life Skills stations that replicate purposeful daily living activities, such as work, hobbies, cooking and gardening; music, aromatherapy and pet therapy programs that have been proven to help improve memory function and concentration, improve sleep and decrease agitation; state-of-the-art Circadian lighting, accent walls and individualized furnishings to assist with room recognition and comfort through familiarity; and secure and monitored outdoor courtyards to allow supervised, independent access and encourage exercise and time outside in fresh air and natural surroundings.
The expansion will also include 24 additional assisted living apartments offering a resident-centered approach and a world-class, professional and caring staff that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Individual service plans include: personal hygiene and grooming, dressing and clothes selection, showering and bathing assistance, meal assistance, incontinence management, mobility support, socialization and medication assistance. Assisted living residents enjoy the same services and amenities found as the independent living residents, such as a delicious, nutritious and extensive dining program, and access to the beautiful and natural surroundings.
