Arbor House of Temple
Arbor House Temple is an all-inclusive, secure community for residents with memory care needs. We have created an environment to support residents to maintain their dignity and independence while receiving assistance in areas they may need support, such as dressing, bathing, medications and decision making. Our Life in Motion engagement programming allows residents to find joy, purpose and connection in their everyday lives. Our caregivers, as we call “friends”, find a distinct connection with each resident that helps build relationships between the two, providing continuity and structure throughout the day. Whether it be enjoying snacks in the ice cream parlor, or helping bake a cake, enjoying the birds in the Aviary, or taking a walk in the secured courtyard, the residents of Arbor House are engaged with their “friends” and enjoy a more purpose-filled day!
Arbor House Temple holds a special Certification for Alzheimer’s Care. Residents enjoy a home-like living space that offers a kitchen area available to residents 24 hours a day, a neighborhood or individual house dining area, a living room where many engagements occur, a quieter family area that has a TV, private bedrooms and courtyards which are available for our residents enjoyment anytime they like. The community is comprised of 4 such houses, providing the smaller spaces as recommended in studies on proper environment for successful dementia living while giving ample community spaces for walks and larger engagement groups. Assistance with personal care needs and 24-hour care is provided in our uniquely caring environment. When space allows, Day Stay and Respite Care is also available.
