Memory care offers a safe, fulfilling community for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Often we hear families express fears about moving their loved one into memory care, specifically that their loved one will be treated like just another face in the crowd. At Friendship Village, our communities place a unique emphasis on personalization and privacy to promote residents’ well-being. We know that each person who walks through our doors is an individual with likes, dislikes, strengths, and challenges.
The staff at Friendship Village takes pride in understanding each of our residents individually, in order to provide the best memory care. Here are a few of the ways our communities are designed to cater to our residents.
Personal space is essential when you need to relax and recharge. This holds true for seniors experiencing memory loss, but it becomes increasingly important to balance with safety measures. At Friendship Village, we respect resident boundaries and wishes while ensuring security.
We have trained security personnel present at all times to ensure a safe, private neighborhood. Our comprehensive measures foster a sense of comfort among residents and their families.
Every person has their own unique story, likes, and hobbies. By infusing personal touches, a living space is turned into a true home. Our apartments are designed to be decorated with all of a resident’s favorite items, such as pictures of grandchildren and handmade quilts. All the little details foster a sense of self and familiarity for residents with memory loss.
Our residents have an abundance of opportunities to engage in their favorite activities and hobbies. Programs, such as art classes, gardening, and music sessions, are meant to stimulate cognitive abilities and encourage social engagement. By offering a variety of programs, we can ensure there’s something for everyone.
Our personalized care plans ensure that each resident receives the attention and support for their specific needs. We’ve trained our team of dedicated professionals to always provide person-centered memory care. This approach allows them to give the right level of support and enhance overall well-being.
By offering individualized living arrangements, customized care plans, and engaging activities tailored to residents’ preferences, our memory care communities promote fulfillment and independence.
