Owner & Administrator
Chris Braley is the owner and administrator of Braley Care Homes and it remains the only free-standing Alzheimer’s Dementia care Facility in West Virginia. Our facility was built with dementia care in mind and is the ideal environment for someone with this disease. It is locked 24 hours per day and has a beautiful outdoor courtyard with a pastoral view, which is secure at all times. Our memory care activities and behavior programming is geared toward meeting each individual’s needs, which helps keep their anxiety level down and reduces the risk of behavior issues.
Chris Braley has a bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work and is an LICSW (licensed independent clinical social worker). Chris has worked in the mental health field for almost 20 years, and knows that quality care comes best in a homelike environment. Chris shares, “dementia is not only in my professional life, but also in my personal life. My grandmother and father suffered from dementia, so I know the pain the families go through as they watch helplessly as their loved one suffers. I like to think that Braley Care Homes is able to lessen this helpless feeling for families, at least this is my goal.”
Recognizing the signs of dementia and taking action to help those with the disease are just some of the goals of a special “action committee” that is studying ways to make St. Albans a Dementia Friendly Community... Click for more details.
