Special Care Unit
The dementia Special Care Unit (SCU) is a 20-bed department for Alzheimer's
and other dementia patients. Some of the patients have special needs due
to loss of memory and need a smaller, quieter environment. Patient safety
is always a high priority, and this unit is secured to ensure the safety
of those who might have a tendency to wander or get lost.
Family members have a separate entrance so that they can conveniently visit
with loved ones at any time. Residents are also assisted in attending
activities and special functions outside of the SCU with their families
and with staff. Family members are an integral part of the special care
provided for these patients.
The staff truly enjoys working in this unit. We keep consistent staff members
in the unit so there are always familiar faces to the patients. The staff
has developed a scrapbook with information and history of each SCU patient.
This is part of validation therapy, which is designed to make patients
with dementia feel safer and more at home.
An application for residency is available from the LTCC office or by mail
if requested. All residents considering admission are required to have
a primary care physician with privileges at Cody Regional Health who agrees to
manage the resident's medical care during his or her stay at the LTCC.
