The Caledonian House is a bold innovation where infrastructure and operations are designed to enhance the care we provide to those with Alzheimer's disease and other kinds of dementia. As well as being architecturally innovative, the Caledonian House is operationally innovative. Whereas, in institutional models of care, three different workers provide care-giving, food services and housekeeping - the Caledonian House, each caregiver, food services and housekeeping - the Caldeonian House, each caregiver will be trained to provide all three services. This holistic approach will increase meaningful interaction between resident and caregiver and, in turn, increase the bonds of familiarity that are so important to person-centered memory care.
Our mission: to nourish Scottish identity through service, fellowship and celebration of Scottish culture
Established in 1845, our Scottish Society is the oldest 501(c)3 charity in Illinois. Today we are one of the world's largest Scottish cultural organizations. The Society's principal charity is the Scottish Home, a beautiful nursing home that the CHICAGO SCOTS built in 1910. The Scottish Home offers a wide range of outstanding assisted living and nursing services. For 100 years, the Scottish Home has provided each resident with loving, person-centered care and true friendship.
Coming this June the CHICAGO SCOTS will proudly open the doors to the Caledonian House
America faces an unanticipated epidemic. As society ages, Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia affect more and more seniors and their families. The Alzheimer's Association projects that, by 2030, 16 million Americans will be living with the disease - a four-fold increase that could cost a trillion dollars each year. The Caledonian House is a practical response to this challenge, providing a haven of expert care deeply informed by a century of experience.
