Enliven Memory Care Guiding Principles

Days with purpose.

We believe that in order to thrive and grow, a person needs to feel purpose. Whether this is recognized in past achievements, in a spiritual sense, in an artful way, or just through daily routine activity, we let whatever “purpose” means to our residents guide their day. Even if that changes from day-to-day, hour-to-hour.

 

Comfort in familiarity.

Each person is unique. We support each resident in setting up familiar activities, cues, meals, and more. Then we help add creative moments of expression that are meaningful to their life.

A family-style atmosphere.

We’ve created a family-style atmosphere to stimulate relationships. Because, as we’ve seen, when residents build relationships with each other, with family, and with staff, the result is enriching in so many positive ways.

 

Encouraging connections.

Our small group activities and one-on-one activities encourage friendships to occur naturally. Residents often initiate these relationships themselves. Or staff may work to establish and support them when they see mutual interests.

Movement creates well-being.

Physical and cognitive movement is a large component of a person’s wellbeing. And those suffering from dementia are no exception. Therefore we do everything possible to help each resident exercise movement and mental stimulation.

 

Music. Games. Dining.

We approach movement in many different and creative ways: music, brain health games, personalized dining experiences and more. Dining, in particular, can often promote self-reliance and interaction with others. And we always adapt to each resident as we find what works best for the individual.

We stay current.

Dementia research is uncovering new information almost daily. Sometimes it’s difficult for families to keep up. But that new research and the innovative ideas it uncovers can be incredibly useful. So we keep up. And we continuously train and stay essentiALZ® certified by the Alzheimer’s Association.

 

New research. New ideas.

We transform our knowledge into real tools and activities that can help our residents. For example, we’ve been known to incorporate technology, such as iPads®, iPods®, Skype® and brain fitness workouts into our residents’ days. And we’ve learned how the therapeutic use of music can greatly benefit those with dementia.

It truly is a partnership.

When your family and our staff work as a team the results are often amazing. So, in the beginning we’ll ask questions. Lots of questions. That way we can develop a memory care program that is best suited to your loved one.

 

Communication.

We’ll stay in touch as often as you’d like. And however you’d like as well.

 

Get involved.

Stay connected and informed with support groups and educational presentations. Attend social events to foster connections with other families.
