Culture Change and the LIFE program at Oasis at Dodge Park and Small house philosophies encourage flexibility
Culture Change and the LIFE program at Oasis at Dodge Park and Small house philosophies encourage flexibility and responsiveness to resident's needs and desires and the plan offers several common areas that will allow variety and choice. Each household has its own dining area, living room (day room) , dedicated activity spaces that will support appropriate activities to people with different cognitive abilities. Each household also has a residential family style kitchen that serves as a front to a commercial style serving kitchen behind it, where residents can freely access juices, fruits and light snack.
The Oasis' specialized Alzheimer's Program has been designed to address and compensate for these losses to the greatest extent possible. This is done in the least restrictive environment possible to permit the greatest degree of personal freedom. The Program is designed to decrease inappropriate stimulation, enhancing each resident's ability to effectively interact with and perceive what is going on around them.
The Alzheimer's Program staff receive special training and seek to adapt to each resident's individual patterns of behavior. In this way we provide the best possible environment for every resident so that he/she can be successful in the tasks of day to day living. Our compassionate and caring staff provide a warm, homelike environment that enriches quality of life for older adults living with Alzheimer's and memory disorders.

Better than Assisted Living
The Oasis at Dodge Park provides a higher level of care than traditional Assisted Living care and it is the ideal solution for seniors who value their independence, yet need more assistance with daily activities, and not ready or want to move to a nursing home facility.
