When you’re researching memory care communities for a loved one, you’ll be faced with many decisions. You may find information online, by searching through your local neighborhood or following up on trusted leads. What should you look for in a memory care community? How do you know it will meet your family’s needs? We cover this and other questions about evaluating memory care centers in our website blog. Once you begin streamlining your decision-making, Mission Chateau most likely will be at the top of your list to learn more about.

Our community has one of the most innovative approaches to senior memory care in the area. Alzheimer’s and dementia care focuses on family engagement and person-centered care to provide a higher quality of life for residents.

Our coveted Johnson County, Kansas location, beautifully appointed interior surroundings and spacious rooms are second to none. But these are not the only reasons families prefer our memory care community for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

1.) Person-Centered Approach to Memory Care includes THRIVE life enrichment programming.

Skilled 24-hour nursing care is provided by our highly trained professional health care team, along with medication assistance and diabetes management. Much more than care, our team takes a person-centered approach and zeroes in on each individual’s needs. We know if they like their coffee with milk or cream, if they prefer their nail polish to be pink or clear and what hobby they like best.

We developed THRIVE programs to help individuals feel independent, maintain their existing skills, learn new ones and have fun. Using an extensive life history tool, we create programs that are meaningful and inspired by residents. THRIVE is mindful of the five spheres of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual.

Keeping a careful eye on how your loved one feels day-to-day is mandatory, and of course, we keep you informed every step of the way.

 

2.) Relaxing Amenities Designed for Indulgence.

Completed in 2019, our $55 million community spans 18.4 acres in the heart of Prairie Village, Kansas and is one of the newest senior living communities to offer independent living, assisted living and memory care residential options on one campus.

With features like a soothing therapy pool to relax in, a movie theater for entertainment and a fitness studio with customized exercises to accommodate memory care needs, residents never need to leave Mission Chateau to fulfill their lifestyle needs. We even have an on-site beauty and barber salon to polish personal styles and pamper residents. There are multiple opportunities for socializing, recreation and activities tailored to preferences and abilities.

 

3.) Delicious Cuisine Combines With Upbeat Companionship.

Flavorful, nutritious meals are served restaurant-style in our elegant dining room. Using local, fresh ingredients, our talented chef and cooks pay meticulous attention to each senior’s dietary needs and restrictions to create extraordinary dishes. Entrees range from seafood, chicken and beef to salads and sandwiches.

Mealtimes are important times for memory care residents, often even the highlight of their day, thanks to the socializing opportunities they provide. Friendly fellowship and lively conversations can make every day a good day.
