Oasis is a specialized facility just for individuals with dementia.  We begin with the firm belief that individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia deserve, and in fact, require more than what is provided in a general nursing care facility to achieve the fullest quality of life.

We have a 6:1 resident-to-staff ratio which allows us to provide resident-centered care in many ways:

  • Engage residents physically, mentally, and socially based on different interests
  • 31,000 square ft building allows space for flexibility in activities
  • Numerous activities within small or large groups as well as individual
  • Monitored and secured 24/7
  • Private studio apartments per residents
  • Two secured courtyards for gardening and outdoor activity

With our carefully designed facility we are able to provide a higher level of care and help your loved one stay engaged and enjoy a better quality of life!

June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month!

                          END ALZ

June is the newly established Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness month (ABAM).  During the month of June, motivate the people around including family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to get involved in the movement to honor those struggling with the disease.

The Alzheimer's Association website gives ways to promote, declare, educate, and resource during the entire month.  You can promote ABAM by suggesting ideas such as "going Casual for the Cause" at work, wearing purple throughtout the month, and registering a team for The Longest Day on June 21st.


divider2.pngMusic has Power! 

MusicHow do simple rhythms, words, and musical tunes play an important role for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia?  According to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), rhythmic and other well-rehearsed responses require little to no cognitive or mental processing.  These responses are triggering the motor center, compared to the cognitive center, of the brain which is why a person’s ability to engage in music can remain intact as the disease progresses. 

Many people relate important events in life with music.  Music can trigger memories of these events along with a wide array of emotions.  Although music may trigger happy/important memories it may also just as easily trigger a sad time in someone’s life.  It is important as a caregiver to observe their loved one’s reactions to different types of music.

Have you taken the time to take a step back to review your physical, emotional, and mental health?  Caregivers give so much of their time and efforts to care for others that they often lose sight to take care of their own needs. It is impairative that you take care of yourself so that you may be the best of help to someone else.  

With the help of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), we have found twelve helpful tips to be a successful caregiver.  Share these tips among relatives and close friends so that your stress load can be dispersed, therefore avoiding “caregiver burnout,” as stated by tip number four.


divider2.pngThe Importance of a Hug

A hug is a great way to stimulate sensory in a person with dementia, so simple yet so important.  As Jennifer Wegerer states in her blog, sensory stimulation is the use of everyday objects to arouse one or more of our five senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch) and with the goal is to evoke positive feelings. 

By using everyday objects for sensory stimulation, it gives seniors the chance to express themselves, especially when they no longer can through words.  Being able to express themselves allows the individual to relax and feel safe which in turn can improve mood, self-esteem, and over all well-being. 

Some stimulation activities include:

  • Talking and reading aloud
  • Giving a hand massage
  • Providing a change of scenery by going outdoors
  • Taking a short walk
  • Present objects that are usually not around such as seashells
