Dementia Care South Hill

It is our mission to make this horrific experience as comfortable as possible for everyone outside the center as much as in. The Dementia Care South Hill that we offer is modified based off the individual’s needs.

There is no easy way to handle Dementia. The care of a resident that is suffering with this illness is number one priority here at Beechtree Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing to all the staff members that will now be an active part of their life.

Our trained and licensed professionals take the time to thoroughly assess each new resident to guarantee the most effective course of treatment and care.

Due to the severity of this illness we have round the clock staff monitoring each and every resident staying with us. In addition to the in-house care we provide Beechtree is also in a transfer agreement with Cayuga Medical Center (which is only 3.5 miles away from the Center) if immediate acute-level care is needed.

Long-Term Care in South Hill, NY

Dementia is a collective term used to describe various symptoms of cognitive decline, affecting memory, thinking and social abilities severely enough to interfere with your daily life. It is a symptom of several underlying diseases and brain disorders. Because of the sensitivity, the medical team offers various treatments that attune to the areas of the brain most affected.

Such therapy treatments include memory care, recreational therapy and pet therapy. Along with the more common therapies of speech, physical, and occupational.

One goal we have for each resident is to provide them with mental, physical, and emotional freedom in a safe environment, while promoting the feelings of remaining independent and dignified. Our team members throughout the Center never want anyone who is staying with us whether it is long term or short to feel anything less than important.

We pride ourselves in making this time frame as comfortable as possible to also assure the family members that their loved one is receiving the most recent and up to date adult care practices. With that being said, each of the team members are required to take comprehensive in-service education programs that are scheduled regularly to keep personnel up to date on new treatments, practices, safety procedures and preventative care.
