About Our Facility
Mount Carmel is a secured facility so that even the most agitated residents can be managed safely within a home-like environment. Much attention has been given to the interior design of our facility in order to reflect safety, security, and comfort without compromising the atmosphere. The home-like setting maintains spatial use of an older style of housing, to which residents are accustomed.
At our Hampton Alzheimer's care center we use traditional furniture to create a living space that is familiar and promises privacy, as well as encouraging socialization and family involvement. While maintaining a home-like atmosphere, our environment addresses the unique cognitive and physical needs of the Alzheimer's and dementia patient. Studies have shown various colors can evoke specific moods or emotional response. Therefore, wall colors and carpeting have been carefully selected in order to create a relaxing effect.
Due to the fact that Sundown Syndrome can be a problem for Alzheimer's and dementia patients, large windows and skylights have been installed to allow for the maximum amount of natural light to come in. Large windows provide visual stimulation and enhance the resident's perception of the environment. This serves to maintain biorhythms, increase visual acuity and reduce residents' confusion.
Residents Love Our Garden
Our outdoor gardens and courtyard are an integral part of the living space as well as our philosophy of care. Having an outdoor space helps the residents feel connected to the world around them. Walking outdoors helps reduce anxiety and agitation that is characteristic of individuals dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia. We offer two safe outdoor spaces for use by residents: a courtyard with a sitting area and a fenced in garden with paved walkways.
One of the most effective ways of relating to an individual with Alzheimer's or Dementia is through meaningful structured daily activities. An effective activities program is not just about scheduling activities or games to comply with state regulations. When there is a lack of appropriate stimulation, or too much stimulation, the resident may respond in a negative manner. For this reason, our planned activities are simple, fun, and limited to what we think is best for our patients.
