From physical spaces to relationships to daily activities, everyone has factors that contribute to their feelings of safety, security, and overall happiness. For individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, the need for comfort is heightened, requiring intentional and specialized support. Here at Friendship Village, our team of trained professionals works hard to create a lifestyle that fully supports residents in memory care.
How does Friendship Village foster its at-home feel for residents with memory loss? Our team continually considers all the details, whether large or small, that contribute to wellness, fulfillment, and accomplishment amongst seniors.
Comfort starts with surroundings. Each design choice in our communities is carefully considered in order to create a safe and comforting atmosphere. The quaint neighborhood, private apartments, and warm decor all contribute to a cozy atmosphere. Additionally, our modern security features and easy-to-navigate environment creates a safe place for seniors to thrive.
Our memory care residents benefit from around-the-clock care by specially-trained staff. It doesn’t stop at our dedicated team either; the implementation of leading-edge health technology helps assess balance, mobility, and range of motion to prevent the risk of falls. Our wellness specialists can then develop personalized programs to help maintain strength, balance and prevent falls.
In memory support, it’s helpful to stay flexible in plans, so that activities actually reflect the residents’ wants and needs. This responsiveness to residents is why we incorporate a mix of planned and spontaneous activities into each day. Some of our most loved happenings include music therapy, reminiscing games, and art projects. Incorporating both routine elements and impromptu shifts into each day creates a good balance of consistency and stimulating engagement.
With resident wellness at the center of every decision, we are able to offer services and provide experiences that best serve individuals who need memory support. Our intentionally designed atmosphere, exceptional care, and captivating activities create an encouraging atmosphere for seniors with memory loss.
