Our Alzheimer's/dementia care approach is to recognize each person's uniqueness and potential for growth. We support the Eden Alternative goal to provide individualized, person-directed care for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. St. John's neighborhoods include elders living with dementia and those who are not. These neighborhoods in our Rochester, NY, location and at our Green House homes in Penfield, NY, have shown that people with Alzheimer's disease or dementia can live well without being separated from others.
St. John's prides itself in being a leader in the newest, most innovative ideas in elder care. We are the only Eden registered skilled nursing facility in New York State and have opened the first community-integrated Green House homes in the nation. Our vision statement pledges to "lead and inspire a shift in society's views of elderhood," and we will continue to work to set the best standards of care for our current and future elders living with Alzheimer's/dementia.
St. John's Home has safeguarded entrances and exits; neighborhoods filled with art, music, visiting pets, and plants; and activities tailored to specific resident needs. We offer enclosed outdoor courtyards, providing a safe haven for exercise and outdoor activities like gardening.
Most importantly, St. John's Home offers a warm and comfortable environment, staffed with caring professionals. We work together to provide individualized care for each elder, even those facing the most severe challenges of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
