Does a person have to have dementia to live at Stone Lodge?
Yes. We provide a service to those who exhibit memory deficits. We believe those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia best benefit from our specialized program and therapeutic environment.
Does Stone Lodge offer private rooms?
Yes. Most of our rooms are private, but do have the opportunity to have guests share a living space if desired. Most guests choose to spend the majority of their time in the comfortable Great Room, family-style dining room, or Esther's Cove sensory room. There is also a spacious and secure patio for outdoor pleasure.
Is Stone Lodge safe and secure?
Yes. The entrance and exit doors are key-coded and alarmed. The patio door allows freedom and independence to come and go outside in a secured gated area. The Lodge is fully sprinkled and alarmed, meeting all fire safety requirements. In addition, all staff undergo criminal background checks as a condition of hire.
Is Stone Lodge licensed?
Yes. We are licensed with the State of Michigan Bureau of Children and Adult Licensing (BCAL) as a Large Group Adult Foster Care (AFC) for aged and Alzheimer's. We are also a member of Michigan Assisted Living Association (MALA) and members of the Shepherd and Mt. Pleasant Chamber of Commerce.
Does Stone Lodge allow pets?
Yes. We understand that moving into assisted living can be a challenging experience and would like individuals to remain with their beloved pets if possible. Determination is based upon appropriateness and compatability. We believe in the therapeutic benefits animals provide. We currently have a lively bird aviary and 145 gallon fish aquarium.
Do the guests at Stone Lodge receive medical oversight?
Yes. We have 24-hour staffing, which includes Certified Nursing Assistants and a Medical Assistant. We collaborate with visiting Physicians, PA's, NP's, Home Health services, Hospice agencies, Pharmacy services, Therapy providers, and Laboratory services.
