EDGEHILL NAMED ONE OF CONNECTICUT’S TOP PERFORMING NURSING HOMES BY U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT

November 15, 2017

STAMFORD, Conn. (Nov. 15, 2017) – Edgehill Health Center is ranked as one of the top 64 performing nursing homes in Connecticut for 2017-2018 by U.S. News & World Report. Out of nearly 2,300 top-rated nursing homes in the United States, Edgehill is the only recognized care provider in Stamford.

Using data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, nursing homes are rated “poor” to “top-performing” on a scale of one to five. Edgehill’s overall rating is five out of five and includes ratings in health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality of care. In Connecticut, only 64 nursing homes out of more than 200 made the list and had overall ratings of 4.5 or greater.

“We are extremely proud of the hard work, dedication and professionalism of the subacute rehabilitation staff at Edgehill,” says Executive Director Christopher Barstein. “Our caregivers love working here, and their compassion is shown in every interaction with the residents, every detail on our campus and in every element of our care.”

Having a health center with five stars and above average quality plays a significant role in helping residents, families and caregivers feel confident about choosing Edgehill when the need arises, says Barstein. Skilled nursing is only one focus of Edgehill’s services;

Memory care center highlights improvements at Stamford retirement complex

March 27, 2017

By Paul Schott

STAMFORD — The needs of today’s senior citizens continue to evolve — and so have the range of services offered by one of the city’s largest retirement communities.

Representing a landmark project in its 19-year history, the Edgehill center at 122 Palmers Hill Road completed earlier this year a $21 million expansion and renovation. The upgrades include a new memory-care wing for residents who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, an expanded skilled-nursing facility with more private rooms and improved independent-living accommodations.

“Our residents come in independently and live in independent-living apartments,” Christopher Barstein, Edgehill’s executive director, said in an interview last week. “And as needs arise, they can move onto a traditional assisted-living environment, and they can move onto a skilled-nursing environment. But what was missing was that dedicated, specialized memory-care environment.”

Covering 15,700 square feet on Edgehill’s third floor, the “Harbor Wing” memory-care center contains 22 apartments. Harbor Wing also includes a dining room, activities area and two patios.

Certified dementia practitioners staff Harbor Wing. They assist residents throughout the day.

“I like living here a lot,” 87-year-old resident Carrol Houser said during an interview last week. “They are very friendly.”

To maintain and strengthen Harbor Wing residents’ cognitive capabilities, “Journey Stations” aim to engage them in a memory or take part in activities that interest them. Those stations include a sewing machine, fishing rod, tackle box, art brushes, paint and a canvas.

More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, which represents the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Demand has grown nationwide for memory-care centers such as Harbor Wing because of the extent of care required by seniors with dementia, said Dr. Patrick Coll, medical director of senior health at UConn Health in Farmington.

“For folks who need continuous supervision, if they have a family that has time and resources, often we’ll see families who’ll work it out among themselves to be there for ‘Mom’ or ‘Grandma,’” Coll said. “But for some folks that’s not an option, because they’re busy with work and other commitments, and that’s why these residential options are now available.”

Edgehill also made extensive changes one floor down from Harbor Wing. As part of the overhaul of its second-floor skilled nursing facility that covers about 24,000 square feet, Edgehill increased the number of private rooms from four to 42. The skilled nursing center now has 46 beds, compared with 60 before the renovation.

“When you see the changes that are happening at the (Stamford) hospital right now — all private rooms, brand-new facility — the expectations in this market are for that same thing, a (skilled-nursing) facility with a high level of finish, with additional amenities and, most specifically, private rooms,” Barstein said.

Creating the memory care center and refurbishing the skilled-nursing complex involved significant reconfigurations including the relocation to the ground floor of assisted-living units previously located on the third floor and expanding the footprints of the second and third floors.

The improvements to Edgehill’s 216 independent living apartments included an enlarged casual dining restaurant and several new amenities such as a rooftop garden, a parlor and entertainment room, a fitness center and a massage therapy room. Edgehill also includes 10 assisted-living apartments.

Construction work for the renovation finished in January, after starting in March 2015.
