nursing-home-alternative-memory-careAt Arbor Terrace Lakeway, our primary goal is to create a safe, secure, and rewarding environment for each of our residents. Our commitment is to seeing that your loved ones who are living with dementia or other memory issues can stay engaged, remain healthy, and feel loved and cared for. This is our commitment to you, and it is our commitment to our residents. 

Arbor Terrace Lakeway is located northwest of Austin, adjacent to the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center and a short drive from Lake Travis on the Colorado River. Our quiet community is designed specifically for seniors living with Alzheimer's or other types of dementia, and our programs have been created to support the well-being of each resident. We stay active, enjoying entertainment, positive dining experiences, and socializing. Our trained and dedicated staff helps ensure the health and happiness of each resident.

Don't Face the Challenges of Alzheimer Alone 

The Alzheimer's Association estimates that 5.8 million people in the U.S. were living with Alzheimer's disease in 2019, a figure which accounted for about 60-70 percent of all dementia patients. In addition, more than 16 million American at-home caregivers provided unpaid care for people with Alzheimer's.

It is only natural to want to keep loved ones with dementia in their homes for as long as possible. Achieving this, however, requires that someone manage their care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This routine can be both stressful and exhausting.

It is important to know you're not alone. Many have faced this same struggle and found that trying to manage it single-handedly is not necessarily the best approach. At Arbor Terrace Lakeway, we have designed programs that provide caring and well-maintained environments for each member of our community. And, we can also be your partner and deliver the level of care you want for your loved one.

Our acclaimed programs are the result of more than 30 years' experience caring for seniors with dementia. We are committed to seeing that each resident receives attention that meets their individual needs. At Arbor Terrace, your family member will discover rewarding and entertaining activities, elegant dining that is both nutritious and enjoyable, and a community of individuals eager to socialize. In a word, we deliver on our commitments.

Careful Attention to Both Personal and Medical Needs

Each member of our neighborhood varies in their abilities, level of independence, interests, and skills. Because of these differences, we design a personalized care plan for each resident to ensure that every aspect of care is individually tailored. Also, we provide an innovative Engaged Living program to create meaningful experiences for our seniors through structured activities and spontaneous interaction. Private rooms are available at Arbor Terrace in three elegant designs, and our facility was carefully built to ensure security and safety. Activities range from aerobic classes to parties with food, cocktails, music, and conversation. 

Also, the medical needs of each resident are closely monitored. Medication management, led by our Evergreen Director, is carefully controlled, and the physical well-being of each individual is closely supervised. Ensuring that residents avoid falls, participate in engaging activities that support cognitive health, and receive nutritious meals and snacks are vital to maintaining a quality lifestyle. In short, we offer those who are memory impaired and their families an entire support community. Check out our varied activities on the Arbor senior living blogs.

A Personalized Care Plan for Each Resident

Each of our residents is special, so we create a personalized care plan based on that individual's needs and abilities. These plans ensure that every aspect of care is tailored for each individual. Because both cognitive and behavioral symptoms often change as a disease progresses, each resident's health is monitored continuously, and their care plans are periodically updated. These plans are designed to maximize the following five primary goals we set for each person in our community:

  • Maintain the highest quality of life possible
  • Maximize abilities to perform daily activities
  • Enhance behavior by maintaining cognition and supporting positive moods
  • Provide a safe and secure environment
  • Promote socialization and interaction as appropriate

Because each resident in our neighborhood is unique, we also provide appropriate levels of care for each person. Based on our assessments, discussions with family, and ongoing professional observations, we deliver needed assistance in a calm, safe, and professional manner. Care is provided on many levels, but often includes:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Toileting
  • Ambulation (moving about and going from one place to another)
  • Supervision (assisting a resident to complete an activity)

A Calm Spot in a Hurried World

Arbor Terrace Lakeway is located just northwest of Austin, Texas, in a beautifully landscaped area with nearby parks and access to Lake Travis on the Colorado River.
