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!

divider2.pngGood Nutrition Month 

Nov.1.jpg

This is the month to really challenge yourself to eat right. Here are 15 tips that will help you along the way!

1. Eat more Fruits and Vegetables

2. Limit Liquid Calories Soda is essentially sugar water, which packs a calorie punch. The healthiest choice is water. Eight glasses are recommended to drink per day.

3.Eat more Fiber.

4. Go Natural Its a simple switch to pick the organic apple over the conventional apple. Or the whole wheat loaf over the Wonder bread.But it's a simple swap that could mean a big nutritional difference.

5. Be a Smart Shopper

6.Super Food Superfoods- think blueberries, broccoli, salmon, walnuts, and even dark chocolate they all pack a nutritional punch!

7. Snack Smart

8. Indulge Socially We're not the ones to tell you not to eat dessert. But how frequently you eat it can drastically affect your diet. Consider instilling a rule where you only indulge outside of your home. Lets say a slice of birthday cake at a party, or splitting a dessert at a resturant with a friend.

9. Fat is Back

10. Curb your Sweet Tooth try to limit how much refined sugar you eat not only is it high in calories but also has very few nutrients. Consumption causes peaks and valleys in your blood sugar levels that leaves you craving more.

11. Eat by the Clock

12. Take your Vitamins When you can't fit an array of healthy foods into your diet a mulitvitamin is a good idea. Vitimans C helps boots your immune system while vitamin D helps with bones and fights osteoprosis. Vitamin E helps wih skin elaisticty and is used in many skin care products to boost the anti aging features.  

13. Size Matters

14. Plan Ahead Say your afternoon meeting runs late, or you have to pick up your kids from day care, here is a great time that planning ahead helps. Preparing food in bulk then freezing it or having prepackaged snacks ready to grab on the go are great ways to keep up with eating healthy. Stashing a Ziplock of baby carrots or an apple in your bag can be your saving grace. 

15. Pace your Eating
