Whether you or your loved one just needs help with daily activities or requires specialized dementia care, you’ll find four living options to meet his or her needs at Dougherty Ferry. Spanning the continuum from Assisted Living to Memory Care—and with the unique Transitional Memory Care Program in between—we enable your loved one to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.
To balance your loved one’s desire for independence and need for assistance, the caring team at Dougherty Ferry provides help with activities of daily living, along with enriching activities, housekeeping and transportation.
Transitional Memory Care
If your loved one needs more support with memory loss than is offered in Assisted Living, but isn’t yet ready for Memory Care, he or she might benefit from our Transitional Memory Care Program, called The Residence Club™.
For those with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, our community offers The Path to the Present®—A Resident-Directed Program. This specialized memory loss program keeps your loved one engaged and safe around the clock.
Dougherty Ferry does not provide skilled nursing. If your loved one doesn’t need a hospital, but can’t be cared for at home, you might be looking at nursing homes. Also called skilled nursing facilities, they provide more medical care than we offer. But if your loved one doesn’t need that much care, our community might be just right.
