The Willows

Family Health West's secure assisted living residence has 24 studio apartments for individuals experiencing Alzheimer’s, dementia, confusion and related disorders. It provides an elegant, yet personal and familiar setting for individuals who don’t require the full services of a nursing home.

Our mission at The Willows is to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment that will enrich the quality of life of our residents, while providing peace of mind for their families. At The Willows, we understand the special needs of our residents and their families. Dealing with the issues surrounding Alzheimer’s and dementia is difficult and demanding for everyone involved.

We incorporate a family lifestyle into a dignified and comfortable residential setting. Each private apartment has a living area / bedroom with bay window, and a private bath. Common areas include dining room, living room, hobby room, activity area, patio and sun room. Residents also enjoy bird watching in our unique aviary.

The Willows uses a social model approach offering a family environment with meaningful activities and pleasant surroundings where stimulation, wellness and fun are the focal points.

We utilize a functional maintenance concept of care, which means that we are committed to keeping each of our residents functioning independently as long as possible in the areas of daily self-care, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, etc. Care is provided to assist the resident to reverse declines if possible, and to improve or maintain their very highest level of functioning with dignity.
