Memory loss affects each person differently and there is no “one size fits all” method to care for all those living with dementia. Through our Inspired Connections Program, we offer personalized care that nurtures the individual, honoring their unique preferences, culture, hobbies, vocational history, and spiritual life, as well as focusing on their cognitive and physical health.
A dementia diagnosis should not mean the end of a meaningful life filled with purpose and joy, it simply requires small adjustments to meet the individual wherever they are in their own journey. Instead of dwelling on what has been lost, we instead celebrate what remains. With Inspired Connections we elevate the person beyond their diagnosis through a variety of programs that nurture and engage through sensory activities, artistic expression, music, reminiscing, cognitive programming, and gentle daily movement. Each facet is designed to nurture the complete person, physically and emotionally.
By getting to know each resident on a personal level, we are able to offer personalized memory care activities for each and every resident. For instance, if a resident enjoys board games or puzzles, we make sure that there are plenty available. If we know that a particular resident routinely becomes anxious at a specific time of day, we can anticipate the behavior and redirect their focus. Our life engagement program demonstrates personalization by utilizing the six elements of life engagement that capture the essence of a resident – who they are, their lifetime of achievements, successes, and accomplishments – and then provides the tools for our community team to connect with them at each interaction throughout the day.
