The Seasons Memory Care environment has been purposefully and specially designed to aid those who have cognitive challenges caused by memory impairment, dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our safe, 6-bed community features secure entry and exit doors and 24-hour monitored emergency response system. Large windows and a welcoming porch ensure residents get plenty of natural sunlight which helps reduce anxiety among residents as they transition gradually from day to evening. Each resident’s suite is designed with a memory box outside the suite as a helpful visual cue. In addition, a creative Plunder Room provides active tactile stimulation for our residents’ long-term memory.
The Seasons’ Resident Assistants and Activities Professionals receive ongoing guidance and teaching on the complex task of providing excellent dementia, memory, and Alzheimer’s care. Our staff undergoes initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approaches, and care of persons with memory impairments. All of our employees continue this training throughout their tenure here; receiving at least 16 hours of continuing education and training yearly through consultants, internet-based classes, and other resources.
Seasons Memory Care offers daily programs of therapeutic activities specially designed for residents with memory impairment to provide for spiritual, social, emotional, and physical and intellectual needs of each resident. A typical day consists of 2-4 planned activities which are balanced with intermittent rest periods and meals in between.
Programs are structured to accommodate the attention span, need for physical movement, cognitive abilities, nutrition and hydration needs of residents with dementia.
Within this general structure, scheduled programs are varied to appeal to a wide range of interests and are often modified to accommodate different abilities of participants.
