ORANGE BEACH, AL | September 1, 2021 – Community Senior Life (CSL), a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization based in Orange Beach, Alabama announced the reformation of EastChase Senior Living to Haven Memory Care on Halcyon. Previously offering both assisted living and memory care options, Haven on Halcyon continues to offer a supportive home-like environment for our residents, but now exclusively for those living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive memory impairments, providing the highest quality memory care available.
“Community Senior Life was founded decades ago, but as an organization, our mission is as relevant today as ever. Unchanged over these many years our mission calls us to provide for the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being of our most vulnerable and valuable population,” said Doug Warren, President & CEO of parent company Community Health Systems, Inc. “We do many jobs very well across our family of companies, but in no job do we take more pride than caring for the frail and elderly who came before us.”
Haven Memory Care on Halcyon features 57 memory care units. Each private apartment includes a spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually controlled heating and air conditioning units, and an emergency alert system. Suites also include a kitchenette. The community’s layout gives residents access to the entire building along with two self-contained outdoor courtyards. In addition, Haven Memory Care on Halcyon features two richly appointed family living rooms with fireplaces, a community room, a private dining and conference room, a library nook, a hair salon, and other amenities.
Haven Memory Care on Halcyon has a full-time nursing staff and offers 24/7 access to nursing care. Every staff member is trained in dementia care best practices using tools developed by the Alzheimer’s Association, the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, and other professional organizations. This training aids staff to understand behavioral, communicative, and cognitive changes residents will experience as dementia progresses. The Community Lifestyle Director will also focus on life enrichment programs to engage residents’ senses and personalities.
Haven Memory Care on Halcyon will also offer seminars and support groups for sponsors and families. The community also offers respite care to give caregivers a break. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 206,000 family caregivers bear the burden of the disease in Alabama. The most recent data for Alabama shows that 96,000 people aged 65+ are living with Alzheimer’s in Alabama and 14.3% aged 45 and older have subjective cognitive decline.
Haven Memory Care on Halcyon is located at 1775 Halcyon Blvd and is conveniently located near The Shoppes at EastChase off Interstate 85.
