Our people make us special.
The heart of CountryHouse really shines through in our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.
Our team is handpicked for their natural empathy, then given best-practices dementia care training. At CountryHouse, our team learns each resident’s story –
their likes, their dislikes, their values, and their past – and use that knowledge to customize care and make meaningful connections with each resident we serve. Since our care is so personalized, we offer a higher staff to resident ratio.
