The Breckinridge is a residential alternative for people in the early to moderate stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It is designed for otherwise healthy people who can no longer safely live at home and who do not require the care of a skilled nursing facility.
Because no two individuals are alike, care at The Breckinridge is designed to fit the needs and accommodate the wishes of each resident. Flexibility is possible because The Breckinridge is limited to 24 residents and maintains a high staffing level.
Staff members are selected primarily because they are friendly, encouraging, caring and supportive. The Breckinridge then makes each staff member an Alzheimer’s care “expert” with comprehensive, ongoing training. The physical design of The Breckinridge is the result of extensive research, thought and consideration of function and aesthetics. It is situated on a wooded, three-acre lot in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Way-finding cues and reminders to assist residents with carrying out basic activities of daily living are tastefully incorporated into gracious, attractive and secure surroundings.
Family and friends are always welcome at The Breckinridge and are encouraged to join residents for delicious home-cooked meals or participate in the many planned and unplanned activities.
