Memory Care

CREATING MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCES

Memory problems typically are one of the first warning signs of cognitive decline. Some individuals with mild cognitive impairment develop Alzheimer’s disease. Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s is a difficult and daunting task. Without a community of support, caregivers can find themselves overwhelmed and exhausted.

At Linden Center, we know what it takes to care for a person with memory loss. We designed the Dementia and Alzheimer’s Program to care for the resident, while supporting their family members.

REMINISCENCE THERAPY

Linden Center’s Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care Program centers on incorporating Reminiscence Therapy into the resident’s everyday experience and environment to promote the engagement in daily activities and create meaningful, fulfilling experiences. The program encompasses:

  • Physical Activities: Residents benefit from engaging in daily physical activities which stimulate emotional and cognitive functions.
  • Therapeutic Activities: We offer a well-rounded therapeutic program that includes educational and spiritual activities to promote discovery and artistic activities that foster imagination and expression.
  • Outings: Our Alzheimer’s/Dementia residents participate in community outings such as trips to see Holiday lights.
  • Sensory Rooms: Our sensory rooms provide a quiet place to decrease a behavioral episode, common in early stage Alzheimer’s residents and triggered by anxiety or over stimulation.
  • Family Support: We hold support groups for families to connect to other fmilies with similar experiences and get support in caring for their loved ones.
