Private bathrooms are finished with granite, gorgeous tile showers, and custom wood cabinetry. Even the wall colors are specially chosen for their calming qualities.
Memory Care by Design
Iris Memory Care is THE residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which regularly have in excess of 40 residents in a building, Iris Memory Care has two separate buildings that are built for a maximum of 20 residents each. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident’s health, happiness, and freedom of movement.
An open floor plan in each building permits residents to easily navigate their way and allows staff to provide accessible care and supervision. Thanks to a higher staff to resident ratio compared to most Assisted Living communities, residents enjoy individualized attention and care every day at Iris Memory Care.
The kitchen and dining areas are designed to encourage community and social engagement. Meals are served from an open concept gourmet kitchen where you can see, smell, and hear the preparations and even have a chat with the chef. Families are encouraged to join their loved one any time for a home-cooked meal!
Iris Memory Care believes that the best way to maintain a residents' quality of life, to help prevent falls, and to manage potential behavioral issues is to keep residents engaged in stimulating, interesting, and engaging activities! Not only does Iris have a full time Life Enrichment Director on staff, all staff members are equipped with multiple tools to assist their efforts in providing activities based on current research and best practices.
Robust activities programming and regularly scheduled events engage the mind and stimulate the senses, giving a sense of purpose and daily successes. Iris Memory Care is the first senior living community in Oklahoma to incorporate Snoezelen® Therapy, a soothing, multi-sensory experience designed to stimulate the mind, increase awareness, and improve mood and cognition. Snoezelen® is one example of the many ways Iris is leading the way in compassionate Memory Care through the use of innovative and effective practices.
