The S.A.F.E. Unit (Secure Area For Elderly) serves residents that have Alzheimer's, Dementia related illnesses, and residents that require a more calm and safe environment. Our unit is different from "Alzheimer Unit's " because we do not focus on just the Alzheimer's resident but on residents with different needs and different diagnoses.
Our S.A.F.E. Unit is an inpatient unit that serves our facility's mental, physiological needs, and emotional health needs. Our goal is to keep the residents safe, support dignity, and promote maximum functioning possible.
