Memory Loss Solutions
In 2006, Liz von Wellsheim, Nancy Koll, and Ronda Perkins joined their experiences in nursing, management, and memory care to create ElderHealth & Living (EHL), a thriving residential care community and health center for persons with memory loss. All three owners live in the area and are hands-on in every aspect of daily operations.
EHL’s unique campus design, made up of nine homes that accommodate 10-11 residents each, allows our staff to develop relationships with each resident, learn their daily routines, and understand their needs through the progression of memory loss. By seeing each person as an individual, we use their strengths and interests to provide the best care possible.
SECURITY WITH A SENSE OF FREEDOM
Residents enjoy safe and secure indoor and outdoor spaces for walking, gardening, and exploring. Our homes are specially designed to allow persons with memory loss to participate in activities that encourage mobility, independence, and the opportunity to feel a sense of pride and enjoyment.
LEADING EDGE MEMORY CARE
Providing the best care possible requires collaboration, modern technology, and a hands-on approach. Geriatric Nurse Practitioner/Medical Director Liz von Wellsheim, GNP collaborates with most healthcare providers to co-manage patients on-site. By using a shared medical record system with PeaceHealth, our staff can provide the most appropriate care using current and complete patient information.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Supporting our community is very important to us. We work with local businesses whenever possible, dedicate fundraising efforts for the Alzheimer’s Association, and present educational trainings for families, care partners, and healthcare professionals.
