Rocky Mountain House – Clearwater Centre

    

The Clearwater Centre offers seniors multiple levels of support and the opportunity to age in place through five distinct program areas.

Clearwater Centre includes 30 private long term care suites, each with a private bathroom and wheelchair accessible shower. Furnishings provided include a hospital style bed, night table, dresser and side chair. Residents are encouraged to bring some of their own belongings to personalize their room.

Admissions are coordinated through Alberta Health Services (403) 845-3009.

The dementia care cottage is a unique 10 room duplex designed to create a home-like setting for up to ten dementia clients in continuing care. Each side of the duplex has 5 bedrooms, living room with fireplace, kitchen, and secure access to the fenced yard. Residents are included in the events that they are accustomed and able.

The care component of the dementia care program is based more on a social rather than a medical model of care. Personal autonomy and competencies are emphasized. Residents can participate in daily activities associated with a home-like environment. These kinds of opportunities are difficult, if not impossible, to offer in large care centres.

Key elements of this model of care are:

  • Creation of a familiar, home-like environment
  • Combining privacy of accommodation with the security of around-the-clock staffing
  • Use of familiar household routines for resident activities
  • Staff serve as role models to engage residents in activities

Admissions are coordinated through Alberta Health Services.
