Memory Care and Related Dementia Treatment

The Erie Cottage of the Home provides specialized services for those with Alzheimers Disease and related dementias. Erie houses the EAGLE (Enhancing and Accommodating Growth in a quality Living Environment) treatment program, a unique in-house program modeled after adult day services in the community. It runs seven days a week and into the evening hours.

The program module includes a balance of cognitive and physical activities of daily living, psycho-social and self-expression components. It follows a structured format while allowing enough flexibility to accommodate the attention span of the participants. Staff report improvement in resident functioning in several areas, including decreased agitation during program hours and increased participation in activities of daily living including social interactions with others.
