At Provision Living, more than ten years of experience has taught us that memory care requires a strong willingness to embrace and respond positively to change. Change can be tough, particularly for caregivers and families. So we decided to create a care model that supports the family as much as it supports the elder. The measure of success at Provision Living at West County is not just thriving elders, but thriving families. One without the other is not good enough.
In October 2016, Provision Living at West County will open our doors with the focus of creating an environment of collaborative teamwork that will produce healthy outcomes for elders in the greater St. Louis community.
Though we are not open just yet, we’re working hard to establish strong connections and relationships in the local community.
To further our efforts, Provision Living has set up an informational resource kiosk inside the West County Center, located at 80 West County Center, Des Peres, MO. This allows us to provide a casual, easy-to-access resource for families struggling with difficult questions involving memory loss, Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias.
Our free resource kiosk is a great place to learn more about our social model of Alzheimer’s and dementia care, which not only cares for elders but also supports you and your family. In the coming months and years, assisted living communities will increasingly focus on helping individuals with memory loss by empowering personal choice and providing family support. Our purpose is to lead the change in assisted living and memory care by embracing change and nourishing elders and their families.
At Provision Living at West County a social model has been designed to create an environment where each elder can experience their unique personhood and maintain their life force.
In our home, elders direct their daily lives. The focus of the social model way of care is to create activity that is life engaging and meaningful in the moment. Everything that is done is geared toward relationship building between elders, families and team members, and all attention is placed on each individual’s quality of life.
Our team members are educated to the needs of people living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Each neighborhood has its own team of dedicated support companions whose goal is to become intimately familiar with the elders. These dedicated support companions will ensure that the elders’ choices, needs and desires are met to the best of their ability. Regular learning circles among our team care partners provide opportunities to communicate new and creative ideas.
Our kiosk is located on the first floor of the West County Center, near Brooks Brothers. Hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. There is no commitment necessary; we are simply offering a much needed, free resource for the St. Louis community.
