Salon Rita is a unit at Villa Acadienne that 16 of our residents call home.The staff in this unit have training and education regarding caring for our residents who live with a dementia. There is a private patio residents and their families are encouraged to use as well as a courtyard where our residents plant their gardens yearly. To ensure the safety of our residents is being met, Salon Rita's exit doors are coded. This does not mean residents are not permitted to leave the unit. Staff and loved ones are encouraged to bring residents for a walks or activities outside of the unit.
Connected to our West wing, this is what is referred to as our Special Care Unit. The staff to resident ratio is higher in this small unit compared to Bors d'en Bas and Département des Soins to allow for the type of care required. All exits have magnetic or coded locked doors to ensure the safety of wandering residents. There is a living/sitting area with a small kitchenette and a dining room. Outside, next to the dining room, a beautiful wrought iron patio was added through staff fundraising efforts and generous family donations.
