Dolan at Mason
Dolan at Mason, St. Louis, MO
Mason is our most quaint home, accommodating seven elders and nestled in a neighborhood near Ladue and Town and Country. Situated on over an acre, the backyard has a patio, vegetable garden, and walking path.
The Mason home has spacious private suites, each with a half bath, built within a barrier-free environment. Memory boxes at the entrance to each suite help Residents identify their bedroom and orient themselves.
A state-of-the-art spa room offers a relaxing environment and creates a pleasant and positive bathing experience. Additionally, the Mason home has several visiting areas, which also accommodate activities. All Dolan homes are designed and constructed for comfort and easy navigation for people with a memory impairment.
Mason’s house and program are designed to maximize independence and dignity. The cues built into the home, along with gentle guidance from the CarePartners, consistently meet the Residents’ needs and desires while reinforcing a safe environment. Mason, as with all Dolan homes, is managed by a licensed nurse. Purposeful tasks, activities of daily living, physical activities and cognitive stimulation are provided to engage Residents based on their interests and strengths.
““Dolan Memory Care Homes gave us a sense of peace. They worked so well with my Dad. The staff joked with him. He often followed Tim around and became his sidekick.”
