The Memory Care Neighborhood at Exceptional Senior Living is designed to provide seniors with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or other memory challenges a safe, comforting environment to explore and continue socialization and learning. Team members receive training lead by a Certified Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care Trainer so that they can become Certified Dementia Care Practitioners.
With activities tailored to each individual, we respect the needs and preferences of our residents. Our team members get to know each person individually including what they find comforting and familiar. By understanding the person's past profession, family life, hobbies, interests, and routines, our nurturing staff members can provide personalized activities that stimulate feelings of security and belonging. Through involving residents in everyday activities that they can accomplish and enjoy, they feel successful, confident and enjoy a feeling of self-worth.
Our experienced, compassionate caregivers are specially trained in dealing with memory care issues and know what to look for and how to respond to each resident’s unique experience. We spend one-on-one time with our residents to reminisce and encourage them to join in small and large group activities as well to foster community and socialization. In addition to our enriching scheduled activities, we offer relaxation and quiet time throughout the day.
Our professional team is available to assist residents throughout the day. From getting ready early in the morning to preparing for bed at night, we respect the dignity and preference of each person and offer them choices of what they would like us to assist with that day.
