Barathaven Alzheimer’s Special Care Center

In May 2012, I visited Barathaven Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in Dardenne Prairie.  Barathaven is a 66-resident, state-licensed-only, Assisted Living home.  It is a new home that has just been open for two years.  They have provided person-centered care from the beginning and haven’t really had to change their culture.  However, they understand that culture change is a journey not a destination.  They recognize the need for ongoing improvement and participate with MC5, Missouri’s Culture Change Coalition.  To read more and view photos, click here:  Barathaven
