Wesley Village introduces new memory support community

SHELTON >> Wesley Village is introducing “Lifestyle Transitions,” a new memory care neighborhood located in the newly renovated Northwest Wing of their Wesley Heights community.

“Lifestyle Transitions at Wesley Heights” will offer specialized assisted living in a secure, supportive environment for those living with memory loss. This new program is designed to support residents with cognitive impairment by engaging them in life and activities within the larger Wesley Heights community and providing encouragement, friendship, and a feeling of security. It will also focus on developing daily routines for successfully managing individualized physical, social and cognitive challenges.

The “Lifestyle Transitions” program space encompasses existing apartments and newly renovated gathering areas, including a library, family-style kitchen, living room area, laundry nook and enclosed outdoor courtyard. Safe and quiet space for reading, relaxation, and dining, and other stimulating activities such as baking, gardening, exercise, art classes, musical entertainment will be available. Colors, textur
es, lighting, and furniture was chosen with the help of a dementia consultant in order to organize these therapeutic spaces in a way that best meets resident needs.

Unique to Wesley Village, “Lifestyle Transitions” offers a mission-based, relationship-centered approach to care, as well as: affordable pricing, a wander-management system, 24-hour staffing with consistent caregivers, engaging activities, a variety of apartment styles for individuals or couples, education and support services for residents and families, and a specialized design to maximize independence. Deposits are now being accepted for apartments in this new neighborhood. For more information, please contact Lisa Kelleher at 203-944-6099 and save the date for the upcoming open house on Sunday, Jan. 25, from 12–3 p.m.

Wesley Village is located at 580 Long Hill Ave. in Shelton and is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes, a local not-for-profit organization. The campus offers assisted and independent living, skilled nursing, short-term rehab, and outpatient therapy and fitness services. To learn more, visit http://www.wesleyvillage-ct.org/.
