Educated Employees for Dementia Care
Annual dementia training is offered to every Quail Ridge employee—as well as every current employee—so they have the knowledge they need to care for all residents on campus. In assisted living, staff members are educated on dementia and specialized care on a monthly basis. The residents are assessed quarterly for trends in their cognitive function and patterns of familiarity.

Legacy a "Day in the Life"
Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for our residents while maintaining safety and security. Each of our residents with Alzheimer's Dementia or related Dementia's, have a person-centered care plan. Alzheimer's and related Dementia caused memory loss as well as other cognitive functions to decline in ways that vary greatly. The "Typical Day" for one person is different from another.
Much has been learned about managing the environment of care for persons with memory loss due to Dementia or other neurodegenerative disorders. It's these insights that guide our trained professionals to more effectively care for residents, as well as support their families and friends.
Each day will begin waking up to get ready with a person-centered approach. Then there's a delicious, nutritious breakfast to enjoy with neighbors.
There are a wide variety of activities to engage each interest in cognitive ability. Many are customized and targeted for each person. There could be a therapy session or a rehabilitation activity. Special events and entertainment are a part of our culture in Legacy and continue to provide comfort and community for us together. Our residents have free time to participate in activities, to rest and/or to take a nap.
To the extent possible, they are encouraged to be active. This includes walking and exercising. This promotes a healthy appetite and regular sleep cycles.
Family members, friends and other caregivers are important participants in the care process. To the extent possible, these family members are included to help support the well-being and overall health of the residents.
