Freedom House, since opening in 1998, has set new standards for memory care treatment methods. Today’s state-of-the-art services, alongside a staff with an extraordinary record of longevity, combine to create a holistic approach to care. And family members are engaged with the care team to ensure the highest quality of life possible.

Well-supported staff.

Carefully selected, specially trained staff have the knack of knowing how to manage the needs of the individual with Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia. Closely connected with each resident and their families, our staff is supported by Donald Royall, MD, the Freedom House research director, who has led pioneering research with the University of Texas Health Science Center.

Resident-centered programming.

Individual needs are met first with our resident-centered program. We embrace residents as beloved extended family, offering them familiar, comfortable surroundings that are safe and rich with meaning. The environment is pet-friendly, and we provide gardens, exercise, nutrition monitoring and opportunities for daily interaction with children from the onsite child-care center. The Caughron Wing at Freedom House is dedicated to those in the last stages of dementia. This neighborhood brings the highest quality hospice and bereavement care to our residents and their families.

Frequently Asked Questions

While both offer individually focused care designed to help the individual get the most out of each day, those with Alzheimer’s or another form of age-related dementia find a plan uniquely suited to their needs. Providing an environment, activities and caring professionals as a complete wrap-around concept, memory support is an exceptional kind of residential care. And because the entire network of family, friends and caregivers are affected by a loved one’s memory loss – all are engaged in the comprehensive plan for care.

Dementia refers to the loss of intellectual functions (thinking, remembering, reasoning) of sufficient severity to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. Not a disease itself, it’s a group of symptoms that may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, depression or imbalances in certain substances, such as hormones or vitamins. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas, leading to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually old memories, too.

Since the early 2000s, the global medical community has recognized Freedom House’s pioneering work in researching the cause, treatment and care of Alzheimer’s.
