If you’re looking for senior living communities in Indianapolis that offer dementia care, consider Harrison Terrace, where caring people make the difference. Harrison Terrace specializes in the care and treatment of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related dementia. Our memory care program, Auguste’s Cottage, is named after Auguste D. of Frankfort, Germany, who is the first person recognized as displaying the symptoms of what we now know as Alzheimer’s disease. Her diagnosis began the world’s recognition, understanding and treatment of memory loss.
We are conveniently located on the east side of Indianapolis, just minutes from downtown and offer easy access to I-70 and I-465. We are also close to Community Hospital East, a full service hospital offering emergency healthcare. Family and friends are encouraged to visit often and enjoy all that downtown Indianapolis has to offer!
As a resident of Harrison Terrace, you will benefit from the dementia care and services offered, along with the freedom, comfort and security of living in a senior community. You will find a warm and comfortable atmosphere with caring and friendly staff.
At American Senior Communities, we are experts at caring for individuals challenged with memory loss issues. While a cure for Alzheimer’s disease does not yet exist, many options are available that enable those living with the disease or other forms of memory loss to enjoy a higher quality of life. The progression of Alzheimer’s and the symptoms that accompany it often make it difficult for family members to continue care at home.
Auguste’s Cottage is a structured, research-based program utilizing a person centered, wellness based model of care. Our carefully selected staff are compassionate, friendly, and professionally trained in memory impairment and have made the pledge to provide each resident with the highest quality of care. Stimulating daily activities are offered and encouraged to sustain independence and promote a healthy spirit, along with excellent healthcare services focused on improving quality of life.
• Meaningful Day activity program features 8 domains of wellness
• Holistic and innovative care philosophies are emphasized
• Reminiscent and dementia supportive living environment
A self-contained center within our community, the concept of Auguste’s Cottage is to focus on maintaining a secure, home-like environment where residents have a sense of belonging. We surround residents with artwork and special personal items from their past to help foster a sense of belonging and cultivate feelings of security. Plants adorn the halls and pets visit frequently. This protected environment fosters dignity and supports autonomy by reducing challenges.
The dignity and individual expression of each resident is ensured through providing excellent healthcare, a secure and comforting environment, a clear understanding of memory issues, and a strong compassion for those we serve.
