Specialized Memory Support for Older Adults at Westminster Place in Evanston
Foster Pavilion is at the forefront of today’s fresh new thinking on caring for people who have difficulty remembering. The program provides new opportunities for an enhanced and enriched quality of life. It reflects our best practices over almost two decades of serving families with memory support needs in Evanston and throughout the Chicago area.
Located in the McGaw Care Center at Westminster Place, the Foster Pavilion is a beautiful, sensitive environment specifically designed to meet the needs of memory impaired residents. All rooms are private.
Familiar smells of freshly-prepared meals are part of a program to stimulate appetite and memories of home and family. Music, games, movies, off-campus trips and personal conversations keep residents engaged and motivated. Whenever possible, residents may take advantage of the programs and activities across the campus, including religious services, holiday gatherings, and the Kimble Fitness and Therapeutic Center.
Perhaps most important is our practice of Person-Centered Care, where the same nursing assistant cares for a resident for the entire length of stay, within each level of memory care. We believe this innovative approach creates a relationship of trust, understanding and commitment.
Foster Pavilion has an extensive range of activities, including music programs, intellectual programs, outdoor activity, exercise and spiritual opportunities, all specifically geared to those with memory loss.
