Supporting Those with Memory Loss
Residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia benefit from a safe environment and thoughtful approach to live connected, joyful lives.
Staff trained in dementia care support the needs of each resident with a focus on clear distinguishable choices throughout the day. We also tailor our care with mood stabilizing lavender-scented towels and aromatherapy diffusers to calm, de-stress and enhance overall mood.
Research shows that regular exercise for those with dementia or other forms of Alzheimer’s can potentially help limit cognitive decline. Residents enjoy walking, stretching, and games that help maintain flexibility and mobility.
Residents experience daily programs that stimulate the senses through music, the arts and exercise along with group outings to stay connected and engaged.
Mealtime is another opportunity for residents to connect with each other. Dishes served on vibrantly colored plates help residents see food more clearly. The Creative Kitchen program activates smell and taste while residents cook alongside culinary staff and reminisce over delicious meals from their past.
Secure indoor and outdoor spaces encourage independence, and furniture designed for older people is arranged to promote conversation and connection. Memory boxes with personal mementos are placed outside each resident’s door to help them find their apartment. Artwork is carefully chosen to invoke a sense of nostalgia and place.
