* Our Approach to Assisted Living
Residents can make themselves completely at home in our assisted living community in Kansas City, Missouri, and enjoy their senior years with personalized attention and normal daily activities. We offer supportive around-the-clock care in a cozy atmosphere, allowing our residents to thrive physically, socially and emotionally.
* Enriching Social Connections
Physical care is a critical component of assisted living, but it’s our social lives that truly add meaning to our days and bring joy to our lives. At The Gardens at Barry Road, our residents enjoy each other’s company. They eat together and play games and connect in a way that strengthens their physical care, keeping their minds sharp and their spirits young.
* Nurturing Environment
We provide personal care services, myriad social activities and fitness programs to promote senior health and quality of life. We focus on an active lifestyle, and our team serves as caregivers and advocates who motivate seniors to truly thrive.
* Personal Care Plan
Upon admission, our Health Services Director meets with new residents and families to develop a personal care plan, which includes an assessment of the resident’s physical and psychological needs. This plan is reviewed and updated regularly to address needs over time.
* Safety Net of Support Services
We strive to meet the personal needs and preferences of each resident. Each member of our community has the support of a strong safety net and the right balance between secure supervision and as much independence as possible. Assistance ranges from personal care, such as help with dressing and bathing, to medication management or arrangement of medical appointments.
* Our Approach to Memory Care
The transition to memory care can be one of the most difficult decisions a family makes. Our compassionate team is committed to helping seniors not only get the physical care they need—but also enjoy the highest possible quality of life. Read more about our approach to memory care.
At The Gardens at Barry Road, our memory care services center on safety and quality of life. We provide intensive care, supervision and monitoring 24 hours a day in a secure environment. We recognize each individual will be affected differently with memory loss, so we offer an individualized program in a stimulating atmosphere to accommodate unique needs.
* Comfortable Living
Our private and companion apartments are located in our friendly neighborhood setting. Our community features a welcoming lounge, family-style dining and vibrant living spaces. The beautifully landscaped grounds provide a secure outdoor setting with continuous walking paths in a tranquil setting.
* Caring Companions
It’s proven that residents with memory loss better maintain cognitive function, language skills, and a healthy routine with consistent social interaction. Memory Care Companion Suites create meaningful social connection between residents, and create affordable access to high-quality care. Studies show that older adults who move from an isolated home environment to a community setting experience the greatest health benefits from the daily social interaction, even greater than the benefits of regular medication management and balanced daily nutrition.
* Personal Care Plan
Upon admission, our Health Services Director meets with new residents and families to develop a personalized care plan, which includes an assessment of the resident’s physical and psychological needs. We tailor care to meet each individual’s symptoms, recognizing every individual will be affected differently with memory loss. Our highly trained team—including around-the-clock licensed nurse supervision—tends to all our residents’ needs, from medication management to physical wellness. We update this plan regularly, or as a resident’s health changes.
* Stimulating Environment
Our compassionate staff works with each resident and family to create an environment where residents can succeed and thrive while maintaining as much familiarity as possible. Small accomplishments, such as working on a memory book, baking, or even making a bed, can be highly therapeutic and encouraging.
* Power of Pets, Music, & Scents
Walk into our Memory Care, and you may see a resident petting a dog or cat, enjoying the scent of flowers in our secure garden, or singing a familiar tune. Senses of touch, smell, and rhythm remain strong as memories fade. Our team members continually tap these senses to soothe and connect with residents.
* Our Approach to Respite Care
For shorter-term stays, The Gardens at Barry Road provides temporary or respite care stays in furnished assisted living apartments. We offer caregivers a safe place for their loved ones while they are away for business or vacation, so families can go away without any guilt or worry. Sometimes, even just a break from the rigorous demands and challenges of caregiving can help rejuvenate spirits and strengthen relationships.
* All the Benefits of Assisted Living
Respite care is ideal for individuals who want to try out our community without a long-term commitment—but who may want to transition to permanent assisted living. Our respite services are a great option for seniors recuperating from a recent hospital stay or illness who need temporary care from a qualified staff.
* Physical Care, Social Connections
Our goal is to provide as much independence as possible while still maintaining a strong safety net and supervision to meet the needs and preferences of each resident. Assistance ranges from personal care, such as help with dressing and bathing, to medication management or arrangement of medical appointments.
* In addition to physical care, our residents enjoy a great deal of social interaction. Whether it’s shared meals at our restaurant-style dining room, games to keep their minds sharp or one of our many extracurricular activities, The Gardens at Barry Road residents maintain an active social life that benefits the mind, body, and soul.
* Nourishing Environment
We offer personal care services, social activities and fitness programs to promote senior autonomy and quality of life. We focus on an active lifestyle, and our team serves as caregivers and advocates for seniors by providing an environment that allows our residents to thrive.
* Our Approach to Hospice Care
At The Gardens at Barry Road, we are here for our residents and their families as they face end-of-life care. As a faith-based organization, our mission aligns with that of hospice—to provide the absolute best in compassionate care.
* We understand end-of-life experiences place an immense burden on individuals and families, but we also believe it should be a time of great emotional and spiritual healing. The experienced teams at all of our communities strive to help your loved one embrace this final period with dignity and comfort. We also recognize the importance of caring for families, and provide information, support and healing.
