with science in mind
Research shows that a daily regimen of mental exercise, social connection, physical activity, and sensory stimulation can help slow the progression of dementia, reduce emotional distress, and even improve short-term memory.
Seniors enrolled in our Purposefully Engaged and Essential Connections programs enjoy a daily menu of social activities, therapies, and exercise, all based on the latest research in treating age-related cognitive decline.
No matter where they are in their journey, we believe every senior with dementia deserves to enjoy dignity, security, and happiness. Our mission is to make that happen.
From group exercise, hobbies, and social clubs to one-on-one opportunities to reminisce, there’s never a dull moment in our Purposefully Engaged program. Each resident enjoys a daily schedule of research- backed enrichments proven to improve dementia symptoms.
Group and individual classes include yoga, chair fitness, gardening and walking clubs, range of motion, & more.
Residents enjoy mental puzzles and thinking games designed to strengthen cognitive processing and memory.
Music, aromatherapy, pet therapy and nutritious meals make for rich experiences that stimulate the senses.
Isolation is never a worry for our seniors. Laughter, conversation, fun, and games are always part of our daily life.
As Dementia progresses, some portions of the Purposefully Engaged program may become challenging and understand the need to modify activities based on residents’ level of involvement. Essential Connections provides therapeutic and sensory based activities that honor the uniqueness of every resident based off their level of care.
ADAPTED GROUP ACTIVITIES
Residents will enjoy ongoing access to therapeutic enrichment with friends, from art to puzzles, games, and gentle exercise. Smaller groups and quieter spaces help reduce overstimulation and anxiety.
In addition to adapted group activities, Essential Connections provides individual therapy to residents in the peace and quiet of their own apartment. In the comfort of a private space filled with personal mementos, residents receive one-on-one touch therapy, aromatherapy, music therapy, and memory therapy.
