Dementia care comes to The Harbor Court in Rocky River

The Harbor Court, offering senior adults independent and assisted living options for over two decades, is proud to announce the opening of Annie’s Place--a secure, memory care floor for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Locally owned and managed by the Zapis Family since 1987, The Harbor Court extends its continuum of care with Annie’s Place. With the addition of memory care, current residents can age in place, while community members with loved ones suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease have another service to choose from under The Harbor Court umbrella of senior services. Annie’s Place offers the most up-to-date memory care in a home-like environment, including personalized assistance and specialized activities, cared for by a veteran staff trained by the Alzheimer’s Association.

Annie’s Place is named in memory of a past resident, Mrs. Annie Harrington. Mrs. Harrington was a longtime resident of The Harbor Court who touched its staff deeply. She was an avid gardener, and The Harbor Court and Zapis Family hope the seed that has been planted on her namesake floor of The Harbor Court blooms in Mrs. Harrington’s honor.

“One out of eight seniors is affected by memory concerns,” says Kathi Greco, community relations doordinator for The Harbor Court. “Our owners, the Zapis Family, felt it was time to offer the family members of this growing population a better option to choose from,” adds Greco. “We encourage anyone with aging family members to stop by our facility to see for themselves why Annie’s Place will provide you with peace of mind.”

In a struggling economy, it’s always nice to see a local company creating jobs. And according to Shelley Sedor, business/human resource manager for The Harbor Court, with the opening of Annie’s Place, The Harbor Court’s staff will eventually increase by 75%.

The Zapis Family is proud of the fact that while creating new jobs in the Rocky River area, they completed the Annie’s Place project without receiving any tax breaks or government money.

This Westshore family, pioneers in senior care facilities and services, takes pride in maintaining a local and present ownership at its two senior care properties (The Harbor Court and Rockport). Their mission is to treat senior adults with dignity and respect to offer the best quality of life.
