Memory Enrichment Center for Special Dementia Care

Snug Harbor on Nelson Bay is proud to announce the addition of its new Memory Enrichment Center: "The Cove".

Just as a sea cove within a harbor offers an extra level of security for sailors, so our own Cove offers that extra level of security within Snug Harbor.

This 10-bed distinctive residence has been planned exclusively for men and women living with dementia. The secure assisted-living area, one of five levels of care now offered by Snug Harbor, features eight beautifully appointed private rooms and one semi-private room, all specifically designed for the care of seniors with Alzheimer's or other memory deficits.

The Cove features an exquisitely furnished living room, dining room, sunroom, and an enclosed outdoor courtyard that provides many sunny spots to relax and enjoy the fresh air. Twenty-four hour care is provided by those who have received specialized training for dementia care, and who provide a comfortable, safe, and nurturing environment so that our residents may feel a sense of purpose and community.

All meals, made famous by our Down East cooks, are served family-style, and a small kitchenette is available to meet the special needs of our clients.

The Cove features a homelike setting with a separate living room, kitchenette, and dining area

Innovative approaches are used in this state-of-the-art "neighborhood", including shadowboxes in front of each door, where residents and families can place personal photos or other memorabilia to help cue them to identify their own rooms. In the home-like setting at "The Cove", residents enjoy freedom of movement in a safe and closely monitored secured area.

This feeling of freedom is enhanced by opportunities outside of The Cove, where residents are accompanied by staff. These events, tailored to each resident's individual needs, include activities within the Snug Harbor facility as well as field trips into the Crystal Coast community.
