Austin House Assisted Living facility provides a continuum of care for individuals that require a traditional assisted living, low to moderate support for their mental health needs as well as a dementia memory care unit. With 3 separate units, Austin House is equipped to handle residents who need a secured setting for added safety and security to prevent wandering or elopement type behaviors. Psychiatric and Medical providers come to the facility on a weekly basis to manage and evaluate residents on a consistent basis. The staff is also supported by a Behavioral Health Clinical Director to provide individualized care plans and interventions and trainings specific to each resident.
The Sycamore Unit is designed for residents with a combination of dementia and a psychiatric diagnosis. Caregivers are trained in handling the behaviors and symptoms that accompany such diagnosis such as: wandering, pacing, refusing or combativeness with care, verbally abusive, or difficulty with redirection. The Gardens Unit is intended for residents with a psychiatric diagnosis that require a secured setting and added behavioral health care. These residents may present as elopement or AWOL risk, verbal abuse, make repetitive statements or behaviors, non-compliance with care and other moderate behaviors. The third unit is named Terrace which is the traditional assisted living unit for residents with no behaviors.
