When a new resident comes into Forest Valley Terrace, the staff work with both residents and families to ensure they are supported throughout this journey.

Team Members are specially trained and partner with organizations that study and support the care of people with dementia. Their approach is to minimize disruptions, confrontations and agitation. They unstructure the routine tasks of care and provide fluid supportive services that fit with the resident's needs and wants.
