Lydia's House Alzheimer's & Dementia Care

Loving and caring for a person with memory loss means adapting to ongoing change and losses. For those with Alzheimer's and related dementia, each day is filled with unfamiliar routines and people.

Lydia's House at Mennonite Village was created to give residents a safe, nurturing home where they feel accepted and their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs are met.

Neighborhood A serves residents in the early to middle stages of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia. Neighborhood B serves residents in the middle to later stages of memory loss. Each neighborhood has ten private bedrooms, two semi-private bedrooms, a large living room, a kitchen, dining area, and laundry facilities.

Residents may choose to participate in normal kitchen and laundry activities, which add to the feeling of still being at home. Neighborhoods A and B have identical floor plans and interiors, which make the transition from one to the other less traumatic.

The outdoor courtyard that connects both neighborhoods gives residents added space for walking, gardening, and other outdoor activities.

Professional staff at Lydia's House receive special training to provide the unique type of care they deliver. A full-time nurse ensures each resident's medical needs are addressed. The caregivers assist residents with personal care needs and cook, serve meals, and perform housekeeping and laundry duties. They also provide recreational programs while promoting residents' dignity.

A structured yet flexible calendar meets residents' spiritual, social, and recreational interests. Activities are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our philosophy is to give residents the freedom to be who they are no matter the stage of the disease process. We offer families the assurance of knowing we are meeting their loved one's ever-changing needs.
