Watching an older adult suffering from the progressive effects of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia can be distressing for family members who worry about their loved one’s safety, daily care needs and overall well-being. Memory care communities can provide families with much-needed relief. What’s more, they can help people with dementia maintain their quality of life and make the most of each day.
Our Memory Care Neighborhoods are uniquely designed to encourage socialization and engagement within a small and intimate setting. Our residents interact in a family-type atmosphere with our team members that creates a sense of belonging and provides for moments of joy.
Regardless of their memory loss stage, our residents receive personalized and compassionate care to meet individual needs. Because some effects of Alzheimer's and dementia include confusion and wandering, the St. Louis Hills Memory Care Neighborhoods are secured with protective oversight to ensure their safety and well-being. Our goal is to maintain the security, dignity, and independence of the residents we serve.
Our compassionate and specially trained caregivers know the value of connecting. Those we serve who live with the progressive effects of all types of dementia often struggle with creating new memories. That is why we have incorporated into our neighborhoods Life Skill Stations. These thoughtful stations are specially designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. The goal of Life Skill Stations is to create small vignettes that help dementia residents spark old memories and create activities that encourage interest, movement, and interaction.
Life Skill Stations recreate familiar situations from the past — like drawing, gardening, fishing, raising babies, or staff can join residents on their journey. Life Skill Stations not only create an atmosphere that is engaging and ideal for reminiscing, but they also encourage meaningful activity that can provide a sense of normalcy.
The CLARITY Program in St. Louis Hills Memory Care offers a fundamental and distinct activity and memory care program, incorporating Five Key Components of meaningful engagement. Our goal is to provide structure and purpose to our resident’s days that is aimed to promote joy and improve their overall well-being.
Whether one-on-one, in a small group or engaged with the rest of the community, these encounters produce positive benefits for our residents and peace of mind for their families.
Below are some examples of our weekly structured program incorporating these five components.
