Alzheimer's Care
Even before visitors take their first step inside Silverado Bellingham it’s plain to see that this is no ordinary memory care community. Upon entering visitors are greeted with soothing music and the smell of cookies baking – sometimes they’ll even be welcomed by the community’s pet Labrador! Inside residents gather for activities and conversation – a lively atmosphere that allows them to remain social while continuing to enjoy the things that were important to them before their diagnosis.

As the only community in Bellingham specifically dedicated to memory care, the Silverado team provides compassionate, individualized care that is focused on mind and spirit just as much as it is on body. From residents in the early stages of memory impairment to those needing a higher level of dementia care, meaningful engagement and dignified treatment are constants in Silverado communities. This attention to staff and care helps us provide far more than assisted living, giving the highest quality of life possible to those with memory conditions.

Activities, Amenities and Programs

•Outdoor areas feature walking trails and a large courtyard with pear, apple and cherry trees as well as blueberry bushes. A wonderful place to walk, relax and get fresh air, our secure grounds encourage residents to be mobile and maintain strength and balance. This helps foster a sense of independence and freedom while maintaining safety.

•Community is very pet-friendly - Residents may be able to move into the community with their beloved companions, provided the pet fits in with others in the environment. Community animals provide affection and companionship as well as giving residents the opportunity to maintain dignity, sense of purpose and self-esteem by helping provide care to animals (if they wish).

•“Neighborhoods” within the community cater to residents’ senior living needs, abilities and interests. Care and programs are tailored to meet the specific functional level of each individual resident. Programs within each neighborhood challenge each person appropriately without being too simple or frustrating.

•Age appropriate activity programs (we call them engagements) build self-esteem, maintain dignity, and offer opportunities for growth and creativity. Revolving around Bellingham's wonderful outdoor activities, club programs are designed with residents’ abilities, interests and histories in mind. The goal of all programs is to have fun, prevent boredom, boost confidence, develop friendships and provide opportunities for new experiences.
