Sensory Room

The Sensory Room is a dedicated room for patients to experience a wide range of visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile stimuli.  The purpose of this room is to develop a sense of security where an individual can relax and explore. 

Also, staff is trained to use aromatheray, which is the practice of using natural oils to enhance psychological and physical well-being. 

 

Memory Enhancement Training

While there is no cure today for some memory disorders, research is continually being conducted to find ways to extend the quality of life for those with the long term debilitating disease. Memory enhancement training with a focus on conditioning the long term memory can assist the resident with daily tasks requiring recall, repetition and naming.

Our professionals have been highly trained to provide compassionate care for the unique needs of our residents. Programming provides emotional and therapeutic activities to maintain the remaining strengths and abilities of each resident. Special emphasis is placed on recognizing individuality and contributing to the resident's self worth.

The changing needs of a patient with memory disorders are a challenge for the family and caregivers. Realizing that a memory disorder impacts all areas of life, this program incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach to monitor and support activities of daily living, social interaction, cognitive stimulation and ambulation.
