Traditions Memory Support neighborhoods are specially designed to provide care and comfort in a secure environment for those in need. Our teams are trained to respect and value each senior, recognizing their preferences and needs. Because we know memory loss affects each resident differently, we plan programs, care, and services in creative ways, tailored to each individual. We also extend our support to the families, knowing the challenges they experience. In addition, residents receive similar services and amenities as in assisted living.
Our goal is to be known as the community’s best resource for education on all things senior living. We ask potential residents numerous questions so we can truly listen to you and discover how we can provide the best solutions for your particular needs.
Signs it might be time for memory support:
- Memory loss that impacts health, such as forgetting to eat or take medication
- Noticeable physical changes, such as weight fluctuations
- Neglect of personal care
- Unnecessary purchases or hoarding
- Lashing out at caregivers or loved ones
- Becoming emotionally volatile and disruptive
- Becoming disoriented or getting lost
- Repeating stories, life events or questions
What Is Memory Support?
Memory loss is common as we age, but dementia is a serious form of memory impairment that requires special care and attention. Loved ones living with dementia or Alzheimer’s may need more assistance than you can provide. In that case, it may be time to consider a senior living community that offers memory care services.
Senior living communities with memory support services provide secure environments that are designed to ensure safety. Many are designed to maximize the quality of life for residents living with dementia, and these communities provide special programs and therapies specifically for people with cognitive impairment. Residents take part in specialized programming in a safe, supportive environment, and services are often tailored to fit each individual’s needs.
Memory care communities can vary widely in programming philosophy, training and services provided. Staff receives training specific to dementia care as well as training on how to provide other typical assisted living services.
Memory Support at Traditions Senior Living
Traditions Senior Living communities employ an engagement-focused memory care philosophy founded on the belief that everyone has an innate ability to learn and succeed, no matter how severe a resident’s memory loss.
Using a person-centered approach, we help people living with dementia remain creative and engaged through environmental adaptions, communication and specialized learning techniques, staff training, and cultural and life enrichment programs.
Our approach tailors activities to an individual’s cognitive abilities and strengths and has been shown to increase self-esteem and independence while significantly decreasing the anxiety, agitation, aggression and apathy often associated with dementia-related illnesses.
We value and incorporate the qualities of dignity, respect, independence, and choice in every aspect of a resident’s care, experience and staff interaction.
