Assisted Living Reviews for Colonial Courtyard at Tyrone

June 01, 2012

By cmeyers011

I visited this facility

This home, like all others seems to have a large interest in keeping everyone active.The facility itself seemed a little old and the people seems to be friendly a lot of them were retired nurses from the Altoona Regional Hospital. they were very nice.The facility was clean and the upkeep seemed well. It was set up like a dorm with everyone having their own rooms and space.The nurses on duty did not seem to be over worked and by that I mean there was a good nurse to patient ratio. which I feel is very important.There is many levels of care and different options available here to suit everyone's needs.This place was exactly as I expected and certainly lived up to the commercials on TV.This facility is the highlight of the people in this area and it seemed like everyone there had people coming to visit them. Their spirits were uplifting to us all.I could tell that these nurses did not have this job for a paycheck they all seemed to really enjoy themsleves.

Our Behind The Door dementia care training is an extensive 9+ hour immersive training program that teaches our team about the root source of common dementia disease processes, as well as methods for how to engage on whatever level the resident is on. Most importantly, we teach our team to use the Residents' Life Story document to learn about their preferences and history so we can understand reasons that negative behaviors may occur and act within the resident's moment to calm the situation.
