Local memory care home

Even though the world is in the midst of the Covid pandemic, there are still Denver-area families that need help with their family members who have dementia and other memory needs.

All five of Applewood Our House Assisted Living Memory Care group homes have been able to stay open and safely care for their residents since the pandemic started.

“We continue to work with the CDC and Colorado Health Department to ensure that all  steps are taken to ensure the safety of our staff and residents,” says Malou van Eijk, “Our staff members and residents will all be receiving their Covid vaccinations in the coming days.

“We realize there is a need out there for families to place their loved ones in group homes like ours, even during a pandemic,” says van Eijk. “With vaccinations happening soon, we believe we’re moving toward the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of the virus. We have a few openings of private and companion rooms in our five homes. We also hope we can return to some sort of ‘normal’ visitation in the near future for families of our residents.”

Applewood Our House residents were treated to many special activities during the holiday season, including having the families decorate the outside of the homes with holiday lights, participating in zoom conversations and “window” visits with family, viewing holiday videos created by family members,  and enjoying special holiday meals prepared by the staff https://youtu.be/NpIUiyWR4rI . In addition, companies and families from the local community reached out during the holidays by sending cards, gifts and cheer to the residents.

“Our homes may be small but we provide BIG care to each and every one of our residents,” van Eijk added. “We continue to help residents engage safely with each other during this time of social distancing. Friendships at our homes have thrived as we all need each other. We have our special pups who give our residents extra love, especially during this time.”
