A Texoma health care facility is expanding.The House of Hope Center is dedicated to treating those with Alzheimer's and Dementia. However, now those who are not diagnosed with those disorders can still seek help.
The facility has completed the licensing requirements necessary to offer that care in their new wing.
Newschannel 6 spoke with officials at the center who told us just what this means for the House of Hope and for future patients in need.
"What we have added is we have another suite that we cannot only provide dementia care, but we provide nursing care," said Jan Oakley the Assistant Director of Nursing at House of Hope. "What that means is what when a person gets to the end process of dementia, they don't have to go somewhere else to have nursing care."
The House of Hope will now have three suites dedicated to Dementia care.
Oakley says the suites are an important part of the facility.
"We are the only facility that has three suites that is dedicated to specifically Dementia, taking care of Alzheimer residents in the North Texas region," said Oakley.
The entire suite includes a common living area, dining area, bird atrium, courtyard access, and state-of-the-art whirlpool room.
The modern campus also has a beauty salon for residents, private dining room for family get togethers, and guest rooms for visiting family members to enjoy.
