Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) offers residential facilities to care for individuals who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, and respite for those who provide care in their homes for loved ones affected by these conditions.
- St. Matthew Center for Health, Park Ridge - Faith Place is a secure community that is specially designed for individuals who are in the early to middle stages of dementia. At Faith Place, staff responds to the physical, emotional, social and sensory needs of the residents with specialized programming provided by trained staff. Residents are encouraged to be active in their daily routines to maintain their independence and feelings of self-worth.
- P.A. Peterson Center for Health, Rockford – In its Bergmark Villa, P.A. Peterson offers a secure neighborhood for its residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia, who live in private and semi-private rooms. Its programs are designed to meet residents’ social needs, and activities are designed to build self-esteem and a sense of well-being. The security of the Bergmark Villa enables residents to stroll safely, while maximizing their independence.
- Respite – Both St. Matthew and P.A. Peterson provide short-term services in times of crisis or simply when caregivers need time off from their responsibilities. Respite stays are considered to be 60 days or less, and are available in any of St. Matthew’s or P.A. Peterson’s levels of care.
In addition, LSSI’s Legacy Corps provides volunteers who offer respite support for caregivers of seniors or other loved ones affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Legacy Corps members do not provide any medical or therapeutic services or tasks. They just provide time off for caregivers to run errands, see to other responsibilities or just relax. LSSI offers respite services through Legacy Corps in Winnebago, Boone, Ogle and McHenry Counties.
- Intouch Adult Day Services – LSSI’s Intouch Adult Day Services in Moline includes a Special Touch Unit for older adults who suffer from Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The unit is divided into four areas based on individual participants’ functional abilities. Intouch provides physical, mental and social stimulation to help seniors maintain their independence and gain confidence, as they interact with peers in a wide range of educational and fun activities.
