Person-centered care is the goal of the program. Caregivers are aware of each guest’s personal history, allowing conversations to flow with ease. Guests are encouraged to bring familiar belongings to make them feel comfortable and our team use validation techniques to accept the guest’s reality, creating a safe, comfortable and caring environment. Assisting guests by observing personal preferences during completion of activities of daily living builds a trusting relationship between the individual and the team. We present opportunities for seniors to live life to its fullest while providing for their needs at every stage of memory loss.
In addition, we partner with families to help them cope with the challenges associated with the disease through support, education and communication. Areas that may be addressed are enhancing communication with a loved one, ways to prevent conflict, and understanding challenging behaviors.
