Dolan at Mason

dorris-gardeningMason is our most quaint home, accommodating seven elders, nestled in a neighborhood near Ladue and Town and Country. Situated on over an acre, the backyard has a patio, vegetable garden and walking path.

The Mason home has spacious, private suites, each with a half bath, built within a barrier free environment. Memory boxes at the entrance to each suite help residents identify their bedroom and orient themselves.

A state-of-the-art spa room offers a relaxing environment and creates a pleasant and positive bathing experience. Additionally, the Mason home has several visiting areas, which also accommodate activities. All Dolan homes are designed and constructed for comfort and easy navigation for people with a memory impairment.

Mason’s house and program is designed to maximize independence and dignity. The cues built into the home along with the gentle guidance of the Care Partners consistently meet the residents’ needs and desires, while reinforcing a safe environment. Mason, as with all Dolan homes, are managed by a licensed nurse. Purposeful tasks, activities of daily living, physical activities and cognitive stimulation are provided to engage residents based on their interests and strengths.

Ann Marie Ashlock, LPN  –  Nurse Manager Mason Manor

ann-marie-ashlock

As an accomplished LPN for the past 40+ years in St. Louis area, I have lucked-upon and find myself in the finale’ stage of my career, as an integral part of the person centered care concept at DMCH.

Being the eldest of 7 siblings, mother of 3 uniquely different children, relative and friend of many medically needy folks—-my care-giving and medical knowledge has been continuously piqued and experienced in both personal and professional arenas of my life.

I have been extremely fortunate to have enjoyed and explored every venue in the realm of medicine, as an EMT and IV certified LPN.  My past experiences have ranged from OB/GYN-Labor and Delivery etc., MED/SURG, PEDS, ICU, ER, PSYCHE, GERO-PSYCHE, TELEMETRY, CARDIAC CATH LAB, SENIOR SERVICES, HOME HEALTH CARE, PRIVATE DUTY, DOCTORS’ OFF., MD ASSISTANT, SCHOOL NURSE and most recently, prior to DMCH—Residential Facility nurse for kids in DFS custody…followed by being facility nurse for four assisted living facilities for adults with mental and psychological challenges

WHY DOLAN MEMEORY CARE HOMES FOR MY CAREER FINALE’? The following statements (etched in my mind during initial interview) will attest to reasons.

  • “person-centered-care for all residents”
  • “engagement with residents before doing dishes”
  • “we eat together and we play together”
  • “bathing per residents time-frame”
  • “bedtimes and medications times per residents routine”
  • “of course, you may have a grilled cheese at 4am”

These noted ideas enamored me to the DMCH concepts…

My mission, as Nurse-Manager at Mason Manor, has been and will continue to be…to insure all our residents, families, friends and staff be treated with respect, compassion, comfort, support and love as we all transition through these times of our lives.
