Specialty Training and our unique Alzheimer Program
Caring for individuals with dementia requires skill and expertise in understanding the disease process. Our consistent core of caregivers have been trained under the auspices of a renowned cognitive care specialist and in conjunction with the dementia care training practices of the Alzheimer’s Association. The development of our Alzheimer program promotes “person centered care” – a unique approach to the way we deliver Alzheimer’s care. This approach to care starts with knowing our residents and connecting to them as individuals.
Therapeutic recreational activities such as art, cooking, gardening and hand massage stimulate the senses and provide a sense of self-worth.
Customized dining enhances our program with a focus on hydration and nutrition. Fresh, appetizing cuisine is presented in an eye appealing manner to stimulate the appetite. Our nutritionally balanced meals are also available for patients who require pureed, ground or mechanically altered diets.
Media enhanced memory activities such as music, radio, television and various word games can help to facilitate a resident’s long-term memory.
Gardening and seasonal outdoor activities can engage all senses and help patients rediscover their world.
