Redefining Memory Care
The Caledonian House
Specifically designed and purpose-built for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias or memory loss, our unique memory care assisted living community, the Caledonian House, is inspired by the warmth of family and the comfort of home.
The Caledonian House is architecturally, operationally and philosophically innovative, but it is also warm and welcoming. The Prairie Style architecture and interior, textural earth-toned furniture, elegant light fixtures and uplifting artwork are purposefully designed to enhance feelings of being in a comfortable family home.
Each of the two “houses” is home to just ten residents, all with large private suites and full bathrooms. Each suite has either a view of the surrounding forest preserve, our beautifully landscaped campus or our residential neighbors and opens to a great room where residents and staff gather by the fireside.
We are a small senior living community, so we get to know you, your loved one and your family personally–including your loved one’s routines, interests, preferences and passions.
Our staff-to-resident ratios are much higher than industry averages. So whatever is needed to make your loved one feel engaged and connected – we go above and beyond to deliver it.
An Experienced & Expert Team
Caledonian House caregivers are Care Partners, cross-trained in personal care, purposeful engagement, activities, housekeeping, dining and nutrition. Through our specialized training, Care Partners learn how to make our memory care residents feel comfortable and at ease by building familiarity and trust.
Our Care Partners receive an extra four weeks of specialized training to learn about our core values and culture, as well as the latest best-practice strategies in caring for, communicating with and supporting people living with memory loss.
Peace of Mind
At The Caledonian House, we believe that if one family member is living with memory loss, everyone in the family is impacted. The care we provide to our residents also reduces worry and eases stress felt by families. With us, you no longer have to be a direct caregiver. Instead, you can focus on being a family member and your relationship with your loved one.
