WOODBURY COUNTY – Lawton Senior Living, an established Independent and Assisted Living community located at 200 E. Char-Mac Drive in Lawton, Iowa is converting 10 apartments to provide a secure Memory Care program to current and future residents with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.
With heightened need and interest in secure Memory Care programming, Lawton Senior Living made the decision to expand their services to include memory care and will begin accepting residents September 1, 2019. Renovations are taking place now to meet this deadline.
Senior Housing Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Allison Law, explains, “People living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia can find comfort in our memory care program. This secure area of the building not only offers specialized activities and team members but is also thoughtfully designed from a structural standpoint. Our philosophy of ‘Embracing Every Moment’ allows us to tailor our program to where each person is in their journey. We utilize music therapy, life stations, memory boxes, and our senior exercise program to increase engagement and stimulate meaningful interactions, benefitting not only the resident but their loved ones as well.”
“Each staff member will undergo extensive training and ongoing education to provide the best possible care to those living with an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis,” said Denise Temple, Manager. “The addition of these ten apartments will allow us to serve even more seniors in Woodbury County and beyond, under our philosophy of ‘Embracing Every Moment’ of their journey.” In addition to an on-site Manager, Lawton Senior Living also employs a fulltime Health Care Coordinator (RN), Life Enrichment Coordinator, Maintenance Coordinator and Culinary Coordinator to serve their seniors.
