Reviews of Barton House | Scottsdale, AZ

I visited this facility
This facility has two buildings each built in a square. There are 20 private rooms with private baths. The living room, activity room and dining room along with a nurse station are in the center. It is built so all rooms come out directly to a living area with no hallways as they specialize in dementia residents.
The Barton House one has been there 12 years and the two for two years. It is actually on Scottsdale border.
All are fully handicapped equipped.
The large yards have walking paths, sitting areas, patio, and lots of greenery. All is secured and enclosed.
It is set-up and made simple due to the type of residents.
They have an RN and lpn one each house. There is always a nurse on call. If they have a caregiver unavailable managers take over. There is a med tech on weekends for the more independent.
They have a doctor who comes in. They attempt not to take residents out because of the level of functioning confuses them. So there is no transport. They adhere to a strict schedule for activities and meals.
They serve three meals a day and have a 10:30 am brunch and food on demand. They have a full time cook and attempt variety without confusion. The food is good.
They have a beauty salon and an activity director.
They have breakfast in am. They then adhere to a schedule of exercises, current events, and games. They have brunch and then downtime for rest or watching movies. in the afternoon they have more activities and eat supper at five.
It is very clean with a caring certified staff. I think they have a great place for loved ones who have dementia.
From Barton House
When a loved one is diagnosed with one of the many forms of “dementia”, including Alzheimer's, families face many complex and difficult choices. At some point, their loved one simply can no longer live at home, even with in-home care. The family must choose from among an increasingly broad spectrum of options for memory care that vary widely in cost, quality of care, physical aesthetic, and the manner in which staff engage with and care for their residents
Most cognitively impaired individuals don't require the highly regimented care provided in many memory care settings. What they need is a place designed specifically for them, with an environment that feels warm like a home, not cold or commercial like a “facility.” At Barton House, we offer that home-like environment and a program of care that stresses individuality, engagement, and personal contact throughout the day.
Our philosophy of care is really quite simple: Focus on strengths, rather than weaknesses. Never stop trying to communicate. Recognize the individual, not the disease. Be kind, always.
We Provide Memory Care Tailored to Meet Individual Needs
We never forget that residents with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia are individuals first, with unique backgrounds, personalities and interests. Moreover, the progress of memory loss and related symptoms varies from person to person. A level of care which is exactly right for one person may well be totally inappropriate for another.
That's why we tailor the care of each resident to meet his or her specific needs. This highly personalized approach is made possible by our small size and unusually low resident-to-caregiver ratio.
Daily Life at Barton House
At Barton House, we provide a variety of activities for our residents that are specifically tailored to engage seniors who suffer from dementia. We believe engagement helps residents retain their identity and independence as long as possible. Our programming starts after breakfast each morning and ends when our residents retire for the night. A Barton House day is filled with familiar daily activities, such as senior exercise, art, board games, music, music therapy, massage therapy, bingo, and many other activities.
We also provide live entertainment several times each month, and our entertainers encourage resident participation. We know that a structured daily activity program, coupled with a high level of engagement with staff and fellow residents throughout the day, is one of the most powerful and effective interventions in memory care.
What Makes Us Special
Barton House is an excellent choice for the family that feels their loved one will thrive best and be more comfortable in a home-like setting rather than one that is more institutional. With an exceptionally low ratio of residents to caregivers, delicious
