The Alzheimer's Related Care Community
The ARC of Jacksonville, Hope Mills, and Dunn are special care facilities specifically designed for Alzheimer's residents. What is especially unique about the ARC communities is they are stand-alone buildings dedicated to the care of Alzheimer's and related dementia residents. The buildings are secure, giving the residents freedom to roam throughout the building, while still remaining in a safe and secure environment.
The first free-standing Alzheimer's and dementia facilities in the state of North Carolina with its' primary goal and mission being exclusively caring for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
The facilities are designed and renovated to fit the needs of this population. Its staff is specifically trained to deal with this disease. Recently The ARC has exclusively developed the Restorative Alzheimer’s Program, which is unique in its approach to Alzheimer's and dementia care.
Alzheimer’s Related Care has hallmarked itself as the leader in providing care for those individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
In order for us to fulfill this obligation to the residents and their families we have implemented the following programs.
The ARC has on-site employees, who are certified by the state of North Carolina, to provide accredited continuing education training to further enhance care for our residents as individual needs are identified. These employees are also an integral part of the Restorative Alzheimer’s Programming. This program is implemented in all three of our Alzheimer’s Related Care facilities.
Recently, Alzheimer’s Related Care has implemented the Internal Quality Assurance Survey program.
The Internal Quality Assurance Survey program consists of a Registered Nurse, with over 30 years as a Licensed Assisted Living Administrator, and other licensed professionals will arrive unannounced at an ARC facility to survey all areas of the facility’s operation. This includes nursing, housekeeping, dietary, activities, administration, medical records, and any other aspect of the day-to-day operation of our facilities. Based upon their findings, they will submit a written report to the owner of Alzheimer’s Related Care Corporation and work with facility staff on any areas they find requires attention. This survey will be conducted on a monthly basis. This will ensure we maintain our highest standard of quality of care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

I have had the pleasure of being the guardian of an elderly lady that is like a grandmother to me and to whom I love and respect very much. This wonderful lady has been a Resident in The A.R.C. since December of 2006. I know with all my experiences with assisted living homes and nursing homes that it is hard sometimes to know if you have made the right decision for your loved one when it comes to placing them in a long term care facility.. I can say without a doubt that The A.R.C. was the best decision I could have possibly made for my (family) member.
The care and compassion that is shown to these Residents is so inspiring. I can say that from the administration on down that all of the employees at The A.R.C. works together to assure that each Resident is taken care of physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and last but not least spirituality. Because of all this I can lie down at night and go to sleep knowing that my loved one is taken care of. This I know for sure if she happens to join the angels at a time that I am not with her its OK because she will be with people who loves and cares for her.H. Potter
On April 1, 2010, we moved my grandmother from her current facility to the ARC. We were told by her previous facility that she would only live for a few more weeks. Due to her being heavily medicated and unable to feed herself, she was bed-ridden and living off Great Shakes. I sat helplessly watching her die.
Since she was moved to the ARC, I have seen her life greatly improve. After being bed-ridden, she is now able to move up and down the halls in her wheelchair. She is also now able to feed herself and will let the staff know when she needs to use the restroom or just wants to lie down. She truly is amazing. She always enjoys the morning inspiration and singing Amazing Grace at the facility. To me, this facility is amazing. On October 25th, my grandma celebrated her 98th birthday and is stronger than ever. I may have to remind her who I am or she may tell me to move out of her way, but that’s okay with me. After all, she is 98.P. Bryan
