Michiana’s first assisted living memory care community, North Woods Village at Edison Lakes, has been recognized as the Best Assisted Living Community by the Goshen News. Locally owned and operated, North Woods Village Memory Care was the first community in the area purposefully designed and built to serve persons suffering from memory impairment and their families.
Aside from the unique physical attributes of the North Woods Village building, each staff member receives extensive initial and ongoing specialized training in Dementia and Alzheimer’s care. North Woods Village management staff has experience in memory, mental health, and long-term care. Among this experienced staff, there are three Certified Virtual Dementia Tour Facilitators, a Certified Senior Living Advisor, a Certified Memory Care Professional , and a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality.
Those with memory impairment have very unique and specialized needs. They require and deserve an exceptional level of care. According to Martin Lebbin, Executive Director of North Woods Village at Edison Lakes, “North Woods Village uses it’s specially developed program, “New Directions”® to meet those unique needs by delivering individualized and resident-centered care. We focus on an engaging lifestyle that emphasizes our residents’ ability, promotes success, and dignified support to help individuals live as independently as possible. Our ability to deliver on these commitments to our residents is because of the dedicated and caring staff who are the real winners of these awards.”
