The Gem Memory Care Program

An Innovative Approach to Memory Care

 
 The Gem Memory Care ribbon cutting ceremony marked its opening June 28, 2018.

The Gem memory care program, our innovative approach to memory care, focuses on our residents’ life experiences and on establishing strong relationships within our community. Developed specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s or related dementias, The Gem memory care program offers personalized programming intended to engage our residents in activities that may reflect their former schedules, lifestyles, and interests.

Reflect. Rejoice. Renew.

Our specialized approach to memory care engages residents through relationships with caregivers.

We Reflect on past accomplishments and who residents were in the early years.

We Rejoice in the successes experienced each day.

We Renew their spirits every day.

Enriching Memory Care

The Gem memory care program achieves an enriching lifestyle through structure, familiarity and a sense of accomplishment. Our program follows a positive and individual approach designed to maintain skills, abilities, and individuality and to provide a sense of purpose and belonging.

Residents begin the day at their own pace with their own routines for best success. A relaxed, yet consistent structure of one-on-one engaging activities throughout the day offers opportunities for enrichment and engagement. The Life Skills portion of The Gem memory care program turns the familiar routine of everyday life into meaningful experiences.

We recognize that behavior is a method of communication and interventions focus on providing a safe environment. We believe in delivering care and structure with dignity and respect. Our specially trained, caring staff have consistent assignments to promote familiarity and comfort for our residents.
