Welcome to Tustin House Assisted Living, a warm and compassionate 12-bed residence designed to provide specialized care for individuals living with dementia. Nestled in a serene and picturesque rural Northern Michigan, our home offers a safe and welcoming environment for our cherished residents to call their own.
At Tustin House, we understand the unique needs and challenges that come with dementia, and our dedicated team of caregivers is committed to providing personalized care and support to each individual. Our philosophy revolves around promoting independence, dignity, and a sense of belonging for every resident, all while fostering a home-like atmosphere that encourages socialization and engagement.
One of the distinctive features of Tustin House is our dedication to maintaining an open and free environment without the use of locked doors for our Dementia diagnosed residents. Our goal is to ensure that residents feel comfortable and secure while enjoying the freedom to move around the residence and engage in meaningful activities. This approach promotes a sense of autonomy and minimizes feelings of confinement, resulting in a more positive and enriching living experience for our residents.
Many of our staff members are Certified Dementia Practitioners, specially trained to understand the complexities of dementia and offer person-centered care. With their extensive knowledge and expertise, they create individual care plans tailored to the unique needs and preferences of each resident. From assistance with daily activities to memory-enhancing exercises and therapeutic programs, our team is here to provide compassionate care that promotes overall well-being.
Engagement is a cornerstone of life at Tustin House; which is why we partner with our local Adult Day Program center. These activities and programs are thoughtfully curated to stimulate cognitive abilities, encourage creativity, and bring joy to our residents’ lives. From music therapy and art sessions to reminiscing groups and outdoor strolls, there is always something to look forward to as well as.
Health and safety are paramount at Tustin House. Our care team is available 24/7 to ensure that residents’ medical needs are met promptly and professionally. Additionally, we maintain a close relationship with healthcare professionals and also offer in-house medical services through two different Visiting Physicians Offices to address any concerns and coordinate specialized care when necessary.
