Harbor on Nelson Bay is proud to announce
the addition of its new Memory Enrichment
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.
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
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
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.
Cove features a homelike setting with a separate living
room, kitchenette, and dining area
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
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.
