We know you’ll love everything Edgewood Spring Creek Memory Care has to offer, but you don’t just have to take our word for it:
“There will never be appropriate words to express the gratitude my family and I have for the accomplished and caring staff at Edgewood Spring Creek. My husband was fortunate to be able to move in, and the care has been loving and exceptional. I was told once that you can tell the quality of an assisted living/memory care facility the minute you open the door. That is abundantly felt at this facility, and it resonates immediately from all the professionals working there, and most importantly, the residents and their smiles. As my husband now says, ‘I love them and they really love me!’ That says it all! Thank you all for taking care of the love of my life!”
– Jerri Stanfield (President of Alzheimer’s Idaho)

Adult Day Services
Stay for the Day
Adult Day Services is a specialized program serving those affected by Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia, who benefit from regularly interacting and engaging with other similarly affected individuals. Family caregivers often express feelings of guilt or of “giving up” on a loved one when they no longer can or want to care for their loved one entirely on their own. At Edgewood we see it differently—you’re not giving up, you’re asking for a hand; it just so happens that helping hand belongs to specially trained, experienced and knowledgeable professionals. Together as a team we can provide the best outcomes for your loved one, with the needed interactions and feelings of belonging, while you take care of yourself and your other responsibilities – whether that’s a work trip, running errands or enjoying a personal day of relaxation.
Adult Day Services clients enjoy most of the same services and amenities as our residents:
Hourly, half and full day rates (hours and pricing vary per location)
24-hour staffing and on-call nurse coverage
Safe, secure environment
Care from staff members with specific training in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and memory care
Nutritious, home-cooked meal(s) & snacks
Individualized and group life enrichment activities
Medication assistance & assistance with other activities of daily living
Engaging Life Stations
Providing Familiarity and Creating Purpose
Life Stations are hands-on and dynamic; they are meant to spark our residents’ old memories and create activities that encourage interest, movement and interaction. These stations are helpful in the retention of memories from years past and create moments of joy. Activities such as gardening, working with tools, desk work or folding laundry help those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia revisit and retain memories in a comforting way, while providing a sense of purpose through familiar activities. Usually those who engage in Life Stations are less likely to wander, have reduced levels of stress and anxiety, and exhibit a calmer demeanor. Ask our staff for ideas on how to create your own Life Stations at home!
Comforts of Home
Edgewood’s Memory Care residents live as independently as possible within a smaller, more comfortable environment. Our communities are designed to feel like any cozy home; there are spaces to gather, socialize and relax with family and friends. Our communities are designed to simulate the comfort, sounds, smells and feeling of home that ignite our residents’ long-term memories to bring them joy and contentment.
No detail is too small, and while we offer soothing room colors and décor throughout, residents are encouraged to bring their own special pictures, furniture and treasures to make their apartment home.
Our open floor plan allows residents to see every area of their home without having to open doors or walk long hallways. The open concept provides clarity and prompts them to interact with their surroundings and new friends, keeping them engaged, which reduces wandering, behaviors and depression while promoting physical and social well-being.
Alzheimer’s and memory loss affect everyone differently. Our staff-to-resident ratio allows us to provide personal attention and help residents maintain daily living skills. That’s coupled with ongoing training for our staff to understand the conditions and challenges associated with this illness.
Edgewood staff members reaffirm what residents do remember, to help improve self-esteem and reinforce positive experiences. Residents may also assist staff in activities such as meal preparation, cleanup, folding laundry and other tasks to help them enjoy the community feeling.
Wondering about the random household items such as old gardening supplies, a laundry basket full of clothes, or a bassinet and baby dolls lying around our community? These are part of Edgewood’s Life Stations; they help our residents spark old memories and create activities that encourage interest, movement and interaction. They are also helpful in the retention of memories from years past and help create new moments of joy.
Using activities such as gardening, working with tools, desk work and folding laundry, Life Stations help our residents revisit and retain memories in a comforting way, and provide a sense of purpose through familiar activities. Residents who engage in Life Stations are less likely to wander, have reduced levels of stress and anxiety, and exhibit a calmer demeanor.
Our Life Stations are designed to be engaging for each community’s residents, by studying their biographies – where did they work, what were their hobbies, etc. These Life Stations are dynamic and will reflect the wants, needs and historical past of our residents, and will need to adapt as our population changes. It is important that the residents define the Life Stations and not vice versa. Ask our staff for ideas on how to create your own Life Stations at home.
