When it comes to caring for Alzheimer’s, dementia and patients with memory loss, it is important to have a memory care staff who are not only licensed and certified but who have also undergone extensive training and education. However, even this may not be enough. Memory and dementia care takes a certain kind of compassion, dedication and patience, and it requires the most out of its caregivers. Because of this, we place those on our memory care team who are highly qualified for this job—educationally, experientially and emotionally. In this way, we are able to provide a level of care that is unlike any other retirement or rehabilitation facility in Iowa.
We were founded on the principle that each person has a right to Christian dignity—no matter their condition. By hiring a team of professionals who are not only some of the leading experts in their field but who also share this passion for the dignity of each person, we are able to encourage a memory care facility that provides our residents with exactly what they need to really thrive.
Delicate, considerate and fiercely dedicated to what we do, it’s obvious why we are Iowa’s most trusted Alzheimer’s care facility—and have been for over 80 years. By holding ourselves, our staff and our facilities to the highest standards, we are leading our community by example and a kindness that will make you and your loved one feel like you’ve come home.
That’s what we’re all about at Salem Lutheran Homes & Rehabilitation Center, and that’s what sets us apart.
