Bringing Independence to living and quality to life.
At Regency at Puakea Retirement & Assisted Living we understand how unique and special your loved one's needs are. Our residents, who have Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia, live with dignity in our loving and secure community.
Daily Life in Memory Care
The daily activities in our Memory Care Community improve the quality of life for people challenged by dementia. We encourage our residents with life enhancing, familiar activities, music and reminiscing. Our residents enjoy the freedom of movement and choice, which are the cornerstones of our innovative activities and programming. Spacious common areas and cozy sitting areas provide our residents and their families a variety of locations to visit or just relax. Our secured courtyard offers numerous garden and patio spots for outside activities.
Our nursing department is staffed with specially trained caregivers 24 hours per day, under the direction of Valerie Stephen, RN. We practice "Gentle Care" philosophy, which encourages our residents' independence and socialization and provides for personal care plans, which reflect each of our resident's preferences and personality.
Family members are an integral part of our community. We invite family members to participate in activities, outings and to enjoy meals with their loved one in our dining room (guest meals are an additional charge). We also host Alzheimer's family support group meetings each month, under the supervision of Kauai's Alzheimer's Association.
Levels of Care
Our residents are assessed prior to their admission by our Director of Nursing, Valerie Stephens, RN. The individual and specific needs of each resident, determined by their personal assessment, are the foundation of our resident care plans, designed to meet these needs.
Our Respite Program was designed with the needs of Caregivers in mind. A caregiver of a loved one with dementia needs periods of rest and relaxation to enable them to maintain energy and a positive attitude about their responsibilities. Our respite program offers relief for 1 to 15 days for caregivers needing time away. Take a break for the day or plan some time for yourself on a regular basis.
