The Mirage and Sahara units provide a homelike environment for residents with low acuity behavioral issues requiring the stability, structure, and safety of a secure living environment. Two distinct and separate units; our Mirage Unit is home to residents diagnosed with dementia with our Sahara unit providing a home for persons whose behaviors are associated with diagnoses other than dementia.
Both units provide a therapeutic care program facilitated by a professional staff that are highly trained in working with persons with dementia. We place a special emphasis on effective approaches and interventions in dealing with low acuity behavior issues.
Relationships, continuity of care, and comfort are key in maintaining Austin House’ family atmosphere. Both units offer comfortable semi-private and private rooms. Families and residents are encouraged to bring personal items and furniture to create a homelike atmosphere.
The Oasis unit offers a more independent residential option for residents who have demonstrated the capacity to manage behaviors and function effectively in a less restrictive environment. Our step-down solution from the Sahara unit, the Oasis unit provides both semi-private and private rooms.
