Our Memory Care community embraces our “Touch of Grace” Memory Care philosophy where we incorporate the use of the five senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch during our moment-to-moment interaction throughout the day. These interactions bring back memories and various moments of joy within each resident. Grace is a simple elegance of our actions and movements with all we do. Many opportunities are provided throughout the day to stir these senses. We offer cooking, exercise, outdoor time, arts and crafts as well as trivia and reminiscing time. Each one of these activities encourages our residents to discuss what they enjoy and moments in their pasts that have created this positive emotion.
The programming within our “Touch of Grace” is created to provide a “purposeful place” for each resident at each hour of the day. Our programming includes engaging the residents to start their day through actions like opening their drapes that darken the room during the nighttime hours, making coffee to fill the area with the aroma, and turning up the lights in the hall, living room and kitchen. We embrace every simple routines as opportunities to establish routines within our day. We provide memory games, trivia games, history, travel videos and education which are all interactive with our group of residents. This has been a very successful way to encourage our residents to interact and engage with one another. Family Feud has been a favorite! These many engagements have sparked many memories and discussions where we all learn about one another while we reminisce together.
As the Executive Director, it is such a blessing to be part of a team providing care and engagement to each resident. Within this close-knit community, we are like family to one another where we share our successes, memories, and moments of joy. To see the smile on a resident’s face provides the warm confirmation of their sense of belonging which is truly a gift every day.
-Bethany Larkins, Executive Director
