Memory Care Reviews for Light Heart Memory Care - Clear Lake

July 23, 2011

By caresurfer

I visited this facility

This is a residential assisted living facility. The staff has worked there for quite some time, and they're all very caring and knowledgeable. This facility is more like home. There is a common area and a breakfast area, and it all feels cozy. It's a medium-sized facility, and they do have activities. The location is good. It's in a quiet, safe neighborhood where there's some walking, though there aren't stores to walk to nearby. There is public transportation nearby. They do have some dementia patients, but they're not primarily focused on dementia. The grounds are nice "“ there's a yard for the residents to utilize, and there are a lot of people who come to visit the facility. There's only one big great room for the residents to congregate. The food is good, though it tends towards beans and rice. The owner has more than one facility, but I haven't visited the other facility. She's very in tune with the industry, and she's had this facility for years. People in the area speak highly of this facility.

  • About Light Heart Memory Care - Clear Lake

    The Light Heart Model of Care is a significant change in traditional Alzheimer’s care. Light Heart was founded on the premise that a person with dementia relates best to their usual, familiar life-style… living in a home with just a few people. Thus, the Light Heart Model of Care was born … just 8 residents per “home” with 2 caregivers in the daytime and 1 awake staff at night.

    The Light Heart Model of Care assesses each resident frequently for his or her level of cognitive awareness, emotional balance, ambulation and dexterity. We also attempt to get a detailed psychosocial history if available. We look for issues the resident had as a young adult as well as who the resident became in middle age. When we combine all this information we can build a picture of the whole person today. We consider this now picture of the resident as their “normal.” This allows us to have a personal relationship with each resident as an individual, not a disease or a child-like adult. We use this information to help us BE in each resident’s reality no matter what they are experiencing. Our staff is trained to accept whatever our resident is saying and/or experiencing as true for them. We remember always that there is still a person inside who feels and senses everything even though they often cannot understand what is going on around them. Our reaction to this dichotomy often determines the resident’s ability to cooperate, socialize, and experience improved quality of life.
