Memory Care Reviews for Meadow Gardens of Menlo Park

January 07, 2016

By Caring112807950

I visited this facility

This care community is completely a dementia facility. It was very nice, cheerful, open, and very clean. It was meticulously watered, kept up, and beautifully landscaped. The rooms weren’t mansion-type, but they were a little bit bigger than my bedroom at home. It was a very secure facility; everything had a punch code in it. The people who were active were active, and the people who were sedentary were kind of pushed off to the side. There were a lot more people sitting around in wheelchairs just sitting there doing nothing. There is not a lot of parking there either.

Questions about Meadow Gardens of Menlo Park

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

Vista Terrace of Belmont has several tiers of training starting with 20 hours of senior care and caregiver training that is mandatory for EVERY employee, ongoing memory care training and workshops. Everyone on our team embraces and has continuous training in the Montessori Method of whole-person care. The Montessori Method places an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a person's natural psychological, physical, and social development.

How many staffers are on duty in the daytime and overnight?

Our staff constantly evolves to correlate to the needs of the community as well as each individual resident. Ample 24/7 coverage and oversight are always something your family can count on.

What programs or activities does Meadow Gardens of Menlo Park offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Using the Montessori Method - Moments in Time, we create an individualized care plan for each resident that takes into consideration their history, interests and capabilities. For example: if Mr. Smith was an auto mechanic all of his life, we might have a couple of our car laminates, a new car magazine and maybe soft clothes for wiping down a car or dash. In addition we might have a photo album with family members enjoying the hot rod he spent years working on to create a masterpiece. For Mrs. Jones, who was a school teacher, we might offer a chalk board and chalk, books from the era she taught in, photos of her children when they were school-age and a yearbook from her teaching days. Along with education on MMIT and our goal to guide and engage the memory impaired with what connects with them!

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

Our Wellness Director will assess the resident when they move in to assess their "baseline" and care needs. Assessments are given at any time that there is a behavioral change as necessary. For example: when someone begins to show signs of sundowners, or starts to exhibit wandering behaviors.

What techniques does Meadow Gardens of Menlo Park use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

While we cater to each individual's needs (John may have no issue swallowing, but Marie might) we follow the established Alz Association guidelines: Serve one course at a time and remove other distracting items from the table, such as extra cutlery, glasses or table decorations. Make sure the crockery is plain and that its colour contrasts with a plain tablecloth and with the food being served. If the use of cutlery is too difficult, serve finger food. Allow plenty of time to eat. Keep noise or activity in the environment to a minimum. Make sure there is adequate lighting. Eat with the person with dementia so that they can follow your lead. Serve familiar food.

How does Meadow Gardens of Menlo Park keep residents' families informed about their loved ones' health?

Menlo Gardens of Menlo Park encourages family participation and communicates often with all family members. However the family prefers, we will reach out and be available for any topics large and small. We give status updates at regular intervals but welcome family participation in their loved-one's care.
