For our Residents who require a higher level of Memory Care in Wichita, KS, ComfortCare Homes offers the Founders Crest Home as an alternative to institutional memory care facilities. Founders Crest was custom-built to provide a residential memory care environment for Residents in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, dementia or Parkinson’s disease. With an average CareGiver/Resident ratio of 1:4 and 2-3 people to assist with each Resident at any given time, Founders Crest is the top choice for customized, long-term Memory Care in Wichita, KS.
Our staff is skilled in caring for Residents with advanced physical and cognitive needs. Founders Crest is licensed by the State of Kansas as a residential care facility. Our secure building is staffed 24 hours a day with licensed and/or certified staff. For families who understand their loved one requires a higher level of care, but wish to avoid nursing home placement, Founders Crest is the answer.
Founders Crest was built to look like an upscale home, not a senior care facility. We provide complete memory care for your loved one, with all the comforts of home. This includes home cooked meals, cleaning, laundry, medication administration, personal care, and incontinence care.
There are several gathering rooms that offer comfortable spaces for Residents to get together with family or other Residents, read, or just relax. We have 2 enclosed courtyards with a wandering path, so Residents have a secure place to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air and exercise. The kitchen has a space for Residents to sit and interact with the Dietary Manager during meal preparation times.
When designing Founders Crest, we wanted to find the best mix between the efficiencies of memory care facility models commonly seen today, and the qualities that make a family home feel comfortable and familiar.
Activities at Founders Crest are different from those offered in a nursing home setting, because group games like BINGO are usually not successful for residents with more advanced dementia, unless there is some sort of adaptation. We focus on providing ongoing mental and physical stimulation beyond television, at a level that meets each Resident’s reality and skills.
I will always be grateful for the founder’s presentation to Downtown Wichita Kiwanis 20 years ago. His (Charles Stark) comments stayed with me, making the choice of care providers easy for me. Smaller really is better. I am familiar with several “retirement” communities and “memory care” services. Very few match the quality of care provided my ComfortCare Homes. Thank you.
