—     A Better Approach     —

Professional Support

Cognitive changes can bring new and often confusing challenges. We understand that a person living with dementia is doing the best they can, it is our job to tailor our responses to their needs.

By understanding their journey, we can create a relationship of trust and understanding with each resident and provide care “with” them, not “to” them.

We know that every day is different, so we create a relationship “in the moment” and let go of yesterday.

We strive to surprise and delight our residents with opportunities of sensory engagement to encourage connection with the environment and people around them.

We acknowledge that a large piece of a person living with dementia’s success is a robust education and support of their family and loved ones. We honor that through educational opportunities, monthly support groups and regular family reviews of resident care and service needs.


We Make Connections Through

TOUCHES

h

Taking Time

Taking time to understand where a person is in the moment and doing things with the person, not to the person, in meeting their daily needs.

Observation

People living with dementia experience changes daily in their abilities and perceptions of the world around them. It is our job to be ever vigilant and aware of those changes, so we can adjust our approach to each resident.

Understanding

Understanding who a person is, their family, hobbies, priorities, life achievements, even their goals, and dreams, can help us create an experience that honors their own sense of self.

Collaboration

Collaboration with family, service providers and staff will enable us, as a support team, to create a comprehensive plan to maximize a resident’s health and success in daily living.

Helping Hands

By utilizing “Positive Approach to Care” techniques, we can utilize our own hands in a supportive, non-threatening, and guiding way, to create positive outcomes in challenging circumstances.

Education

We understand the importance of educating and training our staff so they’re confident and competent when interacting and supporting residents living with dementia. We also know that families often benefit from educational and supportive opportunities to help them navigate the challenges that caring for a person living with dementia can pose.

Synergy

The act of working together to help one another is the keystone to what we do. Our memory support neighborhood is a place where the whole of what we do is the sum of all the parts coming together and creating something beautiful.
