Florence, AL – Hilltop at Glenwood, an assisted living facility affiliated with Genesis HealthCare in Florence, AL, is pleased to announce the opening of its new secure 16-bed Memory Support facility, which caters to patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia-care needs.  This memory support facility is licensed as a special care assisted living facility and is housed in its own secure stand-alone building.   

 

Hilltop at Glenwood had to meet a strict list of policies and procedures in preparation for the creation of its Memory Support offering.  Several components of the program include:

  • Specialized nurse training in Alzheimer’s / Dementia care

  • Stringent staffing coverage model

  • Interdisciplinary approach to care

  • Environmental safety

  • Family involvement in care planning

  • Outcome based activities

 

"According to the Alzheimer's Association, every 65 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease. Although there have been recent advancements in possible treatments and understanding of how the disease progresses, the disease currently affects more than 5 million Americans and their families,” states, Janet Ledlow, Center Executive Director.  “I am very pleased to announce that Hilltop at Glenwood can now assist the residents and families in our community impacted by Alzheimer's and dementia."

 

In addition to Hilltop at Glenwood’s affordable Memory Support Assisted Living building, Hilltop at Glenwood also has another adjacent building focused solely on Assisted Living.  Each Center’s floor plans can accommodate single apartment living or couples in our spacious upgraded apartments.  Apartments feature private bathroom, hardwood floors, fresh paint and cabinetry.  A large dining area promotes dining with dignity that leads into a well-manicured fenced in backyard.
