Helping those with memory loss
At Frey Village we know that during the stages of aging, some people are
affected by memory-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Memory-related conditions often require special care and programming
offered in a secure setting. The Phoenix Unit offers just that. Focused on
providing as much of a “rebirth” as possible, the Phoenix Unit
encourages residents to lead enjoyable and productive lives through
structured activities designed to enhance memory and meet individual needs.
The Phoenix Unit provides care in a safe, secure setting. Each resident room has a
“memory box” on the wall outside its entrance. Families are
encouraged to place items familiar to the resident to enhance recollection
and infuse feelings of home.
Residents receive three delicious meals daily, served in a large day
room. The day room also serves as a neighborhood center, where residents
enjoy individualized activities designed to keep them active. And for
relaxation, residents can sit back in one of the day room’s easy
gliders and watch movies on the big-screen television. For outdoor
enjoyment, French doors located in the day room provide access to a
secure, outdoor courtyard, where residents enjoy numerous outdoor
In addition to activities offered by village staff, residents of the
Phoenix Unit have an abundance of unique social opportunities. From prom
night to birthday parties and outings to places such as ZooAmerica, Lake
Tobias Wildlife Refuge, and aquariums, residents enjoy a range of stimulating activities.
A commitment to care
To minimize confusion for our residents, highly trained, courteous
professionals consistently staff the Phoenix Unit. Offering specialized
attention, staff members focus on offering residents’ individualized care.
With this peace of mind, residents’ families come to understand their loved ones are part of our family, too.
