Auberge Scottsdale Memory Care Community, Superior Memory Care in Scottsdale Auberge Scottsdale, Memory Care Assisted Living is nestled in a residential neighborhood close to the foothills of the picturesque McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale. It’s a true oasis for families and loved ones dealing with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy Body, and other types of dementia. From the appealing smell of baking cookies to the spirited sounds of residents and guests engaged in different activities, it's clear that Auberge Scottsdale takes memory care to new heights of excellence. The lively atmosphere is designed to provide a sense of familiarity and normalcy with recreation to promote engagement and continued enjoyment of lifelong interests. A Memory Care and Assisted Living Community Serves Residents and Their Loved Ones Auberge Scottsdale focuses on delivering individualized memory care and assisted living services that emphasize the mind and spirit as much as the body. We care for residents in the initial stages of memory impairment and those who need an enhanced level of dementia care. Their dignity, health, and comfort are our guiding principles to create the best possible quality of life for them. We also provide hospice and end-of-life care. Residents live in private or shared rooms with private or shared bathrooms. Many bring their own furniture and comforting knickknacks. Each resident is given a “shadowbox” display case where family members place photos, memorabilia, and other items to remind them of people and events they love. They’re great conversation pieces as well. We provide the full range of assisted living services and activities of daily living, as well as medication management and foot care. Because everyone feels good when they look good, we make sure men are shaved (or their beards/mustaches trimmed) and women are in makeup every day. Meals are served in comfortable dining rooms, prepared onsite by Chef George Hogan. Snacks and drinks are readily available throughout the day. Guests are always welcome to join us for meals. We know it’s a difficult decision to place a loved one in 24-hour memory care and we take several steps to encourage families to maintain close connections with their loved one. So, we also focus on our residents’ families: We don’t limit the number of guests who come to visit a resident so entire families can visit together. We host a Mother’s Day brunch and Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for family members to enjoy special holidays with their loved one. We host classic car shows a few times a year, which provides a wonderful venue for residents and families during the cooler weather. Enriching Activities and Onsite Entertainment Stimulate Mind and Body We probably don’t have to tell you that music has amazing, positive effects on people living with dementia. So we have live entertainment here—music and singing—every day. Other activities include Bingo, cards, movies, and arts and crafts. We have sweet and gentle house dogs, and a few residents have brought their own friendly cats as well to live here. We take residents to a local ranch for equine therapy, where they can groom, feed, and lead horses. Equine therapy has been shown to be particularly helpful for early stage dementia by improving their awareness and empathy. A horse will nuzzle a person after a gentle grooming to show its appreciation; this kind of interaction can actually help participants lower stress, depression, and anxiety. We bring small Shetland ponies onsite so less mobile residents can enjoy equine therapy as well. Community Designed for Safe Walking Indoors and Outdoors The first thing visitors notice once they step inside our community is its unique design. Auberge Scottsdale's interior corridor is a square that takes walkers past sleeping areas set off in corners and around common areas, including open dining and community areas where we hold many of our activities. There are two enclosed courtyards as well: one with a walking path around a garden, and one that is in the center of the building, large enough for parties, barbecues, receptions, and other outdoor events. Everywhere you look, it gleams! We constantly clean the premises. It’s a well-cared for and beloved place for living and working. Auberge Scottsdale is a popular site for receptions with others in the elder care community. Residents are, of course, welcome to join these receptions and a few will be happy to show you around with one of our caregiving or other staff! Read Less...
