Enhancing the Lives of Residents and Their Families
Life Enrichment Program
Alden’s Memory Care Life Enrichment Program philosophy is as follows:
People with dementia are unique individuals, each with his/her own history, interests, strengths and needs.
The best approach to care is through habilitation, focusing on the abilities of our residents. People with dementia learn through sensory-based learning that is tied to their emotions, as emotions remain intact throughout their journey. Therefore, we tap into those emotions to illuminate their abilities.
People with dementia experience the world differently than we do, so we need to adapt to their world rather than expecting them to adapt to ours.
Creativity and flexibility are needed to provide the best care possible.
People with dementia do best in a caring, supportive environment.
Our memory care professionals are committed to:
Providing a caring, loving, safe and supportive environment for persons with dementia.
Having each resident maintain his or her own unique life history, culture, talents, abilities and special interests with the utmost dignity and respect.
Providing habilitation through the use of residents’ sensory-based knowledge, tapping into their emotions.
Partnering with individuals, families, friends, staff and the community.
