Our Dementia Care Difference
There IS a Difference in Dementia Care
The Vicarage By The Sea has been providing long-term, specialized dementia care since 1998.
Johanna and Cheryl, together with support staff, provide compassionate care and support to eight residents and their families. Johanna provides professional counseling to families in transition.
We have a superior staff to resident ratio of one to four, providing the best personalized dementia care for your loved one and ensuring individuals’ needs are understood and met.
There are no more transitions ... From early onset dementia throughout the end of life, residents can stay at The Vicarage. Residents are not required to move to another location as the disease progresses. The Vicarage creates stability in residence, relationships and routine by eliminating the stress of transitions for the person living with dementia, thereby enhancing their overall well being.
At the Vicarage, we understand how hard it is to make a transition from home to assisted or residential living. Residents are welcome to decorate and furnish their rooms with their own belongings. Residents may also bring their pets with them, making transitions a little easier.
Home cooked meals are prepared daily with locally purchased foods. Menus incorporate residents' preferences and favorite recipes.
We are a secure environment. Safety and security of residents are ensured with technology (motion detectors) and an exceptional staff to resident ratio of one to four. Residents, joined by staff, are encouraged to engage with the outdoors and walk along the beautiful lane and Oceanside.
Every person has his or her own personalities and interest. Activities are created to meet the needs of each resident and their interests. Group activities from movies and games, to music performances and outings are offered.
The Vicarage offers exceptional care at rates, determined by the level of care, that are typically lower than larger facilities, with no hidden or administrative fees.
