Core Principles Guide Our Memory Care Program

Most importantly, when it comes to caring for their loved one, our families are in charge. We do as much or as little as they prefer. Our caregivers are certified Dementia Care Specialists, trained in communication and behavioral strategies.

We use our client’s background and personal interests to create their care plan. We strive for a clear, accurate understanding of our client’s abilities, tastes, interests, values and spiritual beliefs.

Our in-home care for seniors with dementia program is built around these pillars:

  • Build a structured daily routine to help reduce stress associated with memory loss
  • Choose a healthy nutritious diet that is high in protein to support brain health
  • Hydrate adequately, get enough fluids, daily, to help reduce mental decline
  • Engage mentally, tailored activities support cognitive functioning
  • Exercise, physical activity can improve cognitive abilities better than medication
  • Listen to music, music therapy can greatly improve mood and cognitive functioning
  • Monitor the environment to reduce confusion and agitation

We do activities and tasks “with” our clients instead of “for” our clients. Our goal is to increase their feelings of dignity, self-respect and help them live with a sense of purpose and meaning. We help them reengage in their lives, giving them a sense of belonging and purpose.
