An extension of your family
Our Special Care Unit, which serves as a Dementia care facility and an Alzheimer's care facility, provides specialized care to those in need. We serve the Western New York (WNY) community, including Buffalo, New York, Lockport, Niagara Falls NY and Youngstown, New York.

Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
Special care for special needs.

From residents to staff, everyone at Our Lady of Peace is considered part of an extended family. Like a family, we provide personalized care to meet all the needs of residents with Alzheimer's and Dementia: physical, emotional and spiritual. We accomplish this by adhering to the highest standard of care possible.

Our staff is carefully chosen, then specially trained and certified through our affiliation with the national Alzheimer's Association. The Special Care Unit is specially designed to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for our residents. Great care is taken to provide a regular routine, an important aspect in managing Alzheimer's and Dementia. Residents have interaction all day long through one-on-one and group activities, including sensory and motor skill exercises, music therapy, spa therapy and entertainment. Residents are also provided with ongoing rehabilitation services and evaluation, including physical, occupational, speech therapy and more.

We consider our residents' family members and friends to be part of the Our Lady of Peace family, as well. We encourage loved ones to visit and our staff is readily available for consultation and support.

Comforts of Home.
Our Lady of Peace is designed to feel like home. Spacious rooms are warm and welcoming and include a secure window at each bedside; extra-wide corridors encourage residents to leave their rooms and socialize; comfortable social areas include a fireplace and entertainment center; and meals are served on authentic china.

The Our Lady of Peace chapel provides a peaceful place to relax and reflect with beautiful stained glass windows, which originally adorned Mount St. Mary's Hospital when built in 1912. To help residents look and feel their best, our on-site beauty parlor and barbershop are convenient options.

Secure environment.
One of the challenges of caring for individuals with Alzheimer's at home is ensuring their safety. At Our Lady of Peace, we take steps to protect residents from wandering off or becoming injured. Our Special Care Services Unit is located in its own separate "neighborhood" in Our Lady of Peace, with secure entrances and exits. Beautifully landscaped outdoor areas are also available for residents' enjoyment, with safe and secure walking paths.
