The Dementia Care Cottage is a unique duplex designed to create a home-like environment for 30residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Each side of the cottage consists of 15 beds and residents have their own private bedroom, including bathroom, and a large closet that includes locking storage. Residents are responsible for bringing in their own furniture. If a resident does not have any personal furnishings, the Client Services Manager will arrange to have some furniture available for resident use.

The care component of the dementia care program is based more on a social rather than a medical model of care. Personal autonomy and competencies are emphasized. Residents can participate in daily activities associated with a home-like environment. These kinds of opportunities are difficult, if not impossible, to offer in large care centres.

Key elements of this model of care are:

  • Creation of a familiar, home-like environment
  • Combining privacy of accommodation with the security of around-the-clock staffing
  • Use of familiar household routines for resident activities
  • Staff serve as role models to engage residents in activities

A Community Care Nurse will assess persons seeking admission to the Cottage Living Program at Good Samaritan Stony Plain Care Centre. All assessments are reviewed and prioritized by Alberta Health Services.

For more information on how to qualify for admission, contact Alberta Health Services at 780-496-1300.
