Our memory care focuses on creating a personalized experience. That means there is no one-size-fits-all approach to care here. Techniques that work for one resident may not work for another, so we tailor care to each resident and help address their needs with consistent care assignments whenever possible. Whether it’s our Clare Bridge program for mid to late stages of dementia or our Solace program for the advanced stages of dementia, we have purposeful programs with the compassionate care you and your family need. Here are some of the programs and services we offer:
Clare Bridge is our exclusive brand of dementia care created more than 30 years ago.
Clare Bridge Solace is designed to meet the special needs of residents in the advanced stages of dementia.
ActivitiesOn any given day, you’ll see our residents socializing at parties and other get-togethers, reminiscing about the old days, listening to music, playing cards, getting creative with arts & crafts, tending their outdoor garden or gathering for a movie. We have weekly ice cream socials, monthly birthday celebrations and quarterly special events to encourage family partnerships. Outings might be for ice cream or scenic drives or to Mill Mountain Zoo or South County Library. Each of these activities is enjoyable, yes, but they’re also part of a carefully designed care program to help your loved one live their best life and preserve their independence.
DiningMemory care residents typically do not eat large amounts of food at one time, so to ensure they have a sufficient calorie intake, our menu includes three daily meals with entrée choices and plenty of snacks throughout the day. We also offer finger foods, as some residents cannot use utensils, and support for those requiring assistance. We keep mealtimes routine. Your loved one will sit with familiar people at the same time and at the same table each day. And our care associates are trained to address dining challenges, such as difficulty swallowing or handling utensils, using prompts, adapted recipes and specialized table settings.
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach. We offer the necessary resources and nurturing staff to care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
