Family members and authorized representatives play a vital and cooperative role with staff in the creation of this plan. We believe that a stable, friendly, relatively simple environment, placing few demands on the resident will tend to minimize the likelihood of associated challenging behaviors often caused by rigid approaches to meet the demands of a dictating clock or by the environment itself. We must support residents where they are cognitively instead of forcing them into our reality, placing unrealistic expectations upon them. Consistency and flexibility are both critical to balanced activities of daily living.

Grace Hall is a fully alarmed, secured and safe environment with an enclosed outside patio Psychosocial well-being, peer support and communication are essential for loved ones and caregivers. The family is an integral part of the care giving team and works closely with the staff as well as receives educational, emotional support and assistance during visits. Grace Hall fosters a spirit where friendships and loving relationships are freely formed by all whom are connected. These relationships create a special environment which gives Grace Hall the family feel. Humor is a necessary ingredient to managing the associated stressors for residents, families and staff. Promoting lively, fun and meaningful moments while honoring choice are what really matter.[/ultimate_heading][ultimate_spacer height=”35″]

In 1991 Stella Hammond, RN, gave a tremendous gift of one million dollars to the Gilbert Residence. Her kind heart and devotion to serving those who could not care for themselves was at the foundation for her being. Through her dedication and service to the local community, Stella left a mark on everyone she served. 2006 saw the creation of Grace Hall to serve residents suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. In September of 2010, the Gilbert Residence honored Stella’s devotion and commitment by dedicating Grace Hall in her memory.
