Hence, we are able to provide guidance and support to your loved ones with dementia in our community by using a person-centered strategy that has been rated one of the best in the nation.
Our SHINE® Memory Care program curriculum has earned a National Certificate of Recognition from the Alzheimer’s Association®, the country’s leading, voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care and research. The distinction is one that we share with a small and elite group of U.S. memory care providers.
SHINE® is unique as it uses a person-centered and personalized approach to memory care. It utilizes scientific theories that increase understanding, engagement, and quality of life for your loved ones living with dementia – which include Alzheimer’s Disease and other conditions related to memory.
With the help of our certified nurses and nurse assistants who undergo continued education and specialized training, we are able to chart an exploration course for each of our residents. This course highlights important features of the resident’s life and how to work on them. Our program aims to restore certain parts of their life that have been affected by their condition while preserving other parts that have been going well. With our SHINE® Memory Care program, you can rest assured knowing your loved ones are receiving top-quality care in the best hands. You have our promise.
