Visit Woodside in Washington: Presbyterian SeniorCare's Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Community

If you have a loved one who is challenged with Alzheimer's or a related dementia, you may feel the worry of leaving them at home to cook for themselves, or the worry that your loved one may wander at night, or even feel the stress that your parent may drive into town and become confused as to where they are. Presbyterian SeniorCare (PSC) understands your concerns and we can help provide comfort

If your loved one is physically able, but needs assistance due to memory impairment, PSC's Woodside in Washington program is the perfect living environment to ease your worries. Woodside in Washington, located at PSC's Southminster Place, is one of Washington's only secure personal care community. Featuring private rooms, your loved one will be assisted with self-care and benefit from 24 hour programming from caregivers who are specifically trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care. Woodside residents have freedom; residents are free to watch television when they want, have a snack at any time or admire the beautiful Wander Garden, a secure outside space for Woodside residents. Plus, pets are welcome!

Do you need a break from caregiving, or need to go out of town for a vacation or business trip, but are not ready for your loved one to move into the Woodside community? PSC offers respite stays for any period of time, no matter how long or short your trip may be.

Woodside in Washington is modeled around PSC's Woodside Place in Oakmont, one of the nation's first dementia-specific communities and has been replicated more than 70 times around the world.
