Seraphim Memory Care Services from Visiting Angels in Newton/Canton, MA

The Newton/Canton office has taken a leadership role in the provision of memory care at home within Eastern Massachusetts.  Our Seraphim Care Program Manager, Michelle Boiardi, CDP, has been a provider, supervisor and manager of specialized care for people living with dementia since 1994.  Most of that time has been with some of the area's leading residential dementia care facilities, but since January, 2016, she has led our mission to bring cutting edge dementia care services into the home.  Her training from some of the nation's leading dementia care experts, plus decades of experience, have provided her with insights, knowledge and skills that are not normally available in home care.  This type of care has been shown to make it possible for seniors living with dementia to remain in their homes for up to 18 months longer. 

Our Seraphim Care program has four major elements:

  1. Cognitive stimulation
  2. Social engagement
  3. Physical exercise
  4. Brain-healthy diet

We start with a comprehensive assessment of the individual, including personal history, relationships, educational/career history, environment, behavior patterns, cognitive and physical capacity, and many other factors.  From that we develop a detailed dementia care plan, including a daily schedule and activities.  Those activities are often tailored specifically with the senior's personal interests in mind, so that he or she finds them interesting and fun.  Of course, our caregivers are trained in dementia care techniques, but we also provide training to family members, so that they can play their important role as well as possible.
