About Barton House
When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, it's difficult to know what to do. Home care is simply not feasible for most families today. And the alternative, institutionalization in the locked wing of a nursing home, is far from ideal.
In fact, most cognitively impaired people don't need the regimented care provided in a nursing home. What they need is a place designed specifically for them. With an environment that feels like a home, not a hospital. And a program of care that stresses individuality and interpersonal contact.
All of the staff at Barton House receive special training in working with the cognitively impaired. And all are hired as much for their belief in the basic dignity of every person as for their professional skills.
What Makes Us Special
Barton House is a large, single-story home with 16 to 20 private resident rooms surrounding a formal living room, an activity area, a dining room and an "open" kitchen to provide a social environment.
