Seeing familiar faces each day helps seniors who are struggling with memory. That’s one of the reasons we have specific staff members who consistently work in our memory support areas. This continuity of care helps residents bond with caregivers and allows caregivers to understand each resident’s specific wants and needs. It also enables strong communication between staff and family members.
Memory support is offered in designated skilled nursing and assisted living households. Each staff member working in a memory support area participates in ongoing training to learn the best care models for helping seniors with memory needs.
A high level of individual attention allows residents to make choices about activities for the day — whether it’s taking a walk, watching a movie, painting a picture, or participating in an exercise class. Residents can choose between group or individual activities, excursions outside of the household, or programs on campus.
