At Bethany Riverview, 120 of the 210 beds will be dedicated to Complex Dementia Care, which is an urgent need in Calgary as our population continues to age. For families facing the difficult journey of caring for a loved one with dementia, there are many challenges. Not only do they watch their memories and life with their loved one slip away, but there are also concerns about safety and quality of life. Bethany Riverview is a specially designed space with programming and activities that will help people with dementia to live well and age with joy and dignity.
Our residents will benefit from the care of a multidisciplinary team including nurses, family physicians, geriatric psychiatrists, dieticians, chaplains, educators, pharmacists, therapists and more.
Bethany Riverview is a dementia-friendly care centre giving residents the opportunity to be fully integrated in our community with a strong focus on their day-to-day experiences.
Our care delivery at Bethany Riverview is different, although firmly based on best practices and innovation in dementia care. We have carefully created an environment that intentionally removes visual and physical barriers to create a place that is accessible, welcoming and secure for our residents.
