Transcript of Blakey Cottage
Memory loss that is severe enough to interfere with every day skills.
All of the residents have a form of Alzheimer’s.
-professionals who care for our residents like their own family Mission Statement:
Our mission is to provide the best quality of life possible for our residents in a safe, caring, and homelike setting. We will use our abilities to make sure our residents's dignity is preserved and will seek excellence in promoting the physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being of each resident entrusted in our care. We recognize the value and potential of all human beings as built in to their basic individual needs. We will encourage choices, decision making, and promote independence for each resident. Blakey Hall's desire is to serve the community and our residents with interaction between generations. We do this extensively with Elon University student volunteers and by involving the children from our after school program in the lives of our residents.
Alzheimer's Is: North Carolina Statistics
North Carolina currently has over 170,000 older adults with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia. By 2030, the total number is projected to rise to over 288,000 (D.A. Evans et al.).
The results of the NC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Survey indicate that 28% of North Carolina residents are providing regular care or assistance to an older adult with a long-term illness or disability. Almost half of these caregivers report that the person they are caring for has memory loss, confusion or a disorder like Alzheimer’s disease.
Recent studies estimate that over 70% of persons with Alzheimer’s disease are cared for at home or in the community by family members and friends. In order to continue their care, families need a strong network of community support that includes dementia-specific information, counseling, problem-solving, capacity-building and appropriate respite care.
