Pine Haven opens second phase of Haven Drive campus

Pine Haven Christian Communities opened the second phase of their Haven Drive campus, including a full spectrum of memory care services to meet the unique and changing needs of seniors in our county, Monday, Aug. 3.

Since opening in 1950 as a Christcentered safe haven offering quality, compassionate care, Pine Haven has been committed to adapting their offerings to meet the ever changing needs of our seniors.

Pine Haven’s Covenant Home on the Giddings Avenue campus opened back in 2011 to better address the specialized needs of those with dementia.

This assisted living home previously provided all stages of dementia care, but with the opening of the new campus will be dedicated to early stage dementia care. The new Haven Drive campus will add three new households for later stage care, creating a full continuum of memory care.

“As dementia progresses, residents’ needs can change. That’s why we’re very excited to be able to offer four different households for memory care,” stated Rhonda Scholten, clinical services supervisor and Certified Dementia Practitioner at Pine Haven.

The new, Haven Drive campus will have two households for stage 2 and stage 3 dementia care, and a household unique in Sheboygan County which provides both memory care and care for high physical needs in an assisted living environment.

Through the differing care levels, each household will be appropriately staffed to ensure superior care. The new memory care households will also increase Pine Haven’s capacity to care for those with dementia by 145 percent.

This increase in capacity is essential to serving our community, as the Alzheimer’s Association has stated that the number of those with Alzheimer’s disease is expected to increase by 40 percent in the next 10 years.

Married couples can have very different individual care needs. Having a full continuum of care on one campus means they can stay together while having those individual needs met, even if one may need memory care or long term care and the other only minimal support.”

After opening, the completed Haven Drive campus will offer a full range of care, including: 40 apartments for supported independent living, 36 apartments for long-term skilled nursing care residents, 32 memory care apartments, 8 traditional assisted living apartments, 14 apartments for rehabilitative therapy patients, a state-of-the-art therapy gym providing both in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation services, and many community features like a multi-purpose community center for community events, an educational center, and a Village Square with a café, general store, beauty salon, and room for people to gather and socialize.

Features on the campus include household fireplaces, outdoor patios, indoor four-season rooms, and surrounding gardens and walkways for residents to enjoy.

The campus is built at-grade, so those with walkers or wheelchairs will have access to all features. The overall design is set up like a neighborhood, to feel like a community anyone would want to call home.

A dedication ceremony and Autumn Festival will be held at the Haven Drive campus Sept. 12, from 1:30 – 6 p.m. The event will include a brat fry, craft & bake sale with proceeds benefitting the residents of Pine Haven. Visitors can also tour the public areas of the campus.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions and many informational kiosks will be set up for the public. This event is open to the public, and all are encouraged to attend.
