We can often identify and accept rather readily that over time, our bodies show signs of age. Maybe we can’t climb stairs quite as fast as we used to, nor put the same zip on the football that we once could, but all that is really just an accepted part of growing older.
However, when our minds begin to fail, the complications can be drastic, and those signs are much less noticeable to the individual. That’s why it’s important to know that seniors and families need not face cognitive illness or decline alone, and that help is available right in the local community.
Today, 1 out of every 3 seniors dies with either Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. There are presently no treatments to stop or reverse these diseases, but that does not mean that people afflicted by them must suffer through their golden years. For seniors living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or another cognitive diagnosis, we offer the SHINE® Memory Care program.
SHINE® is scientifically designed to enrich the lives of seniors living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease or other memory-related conditions.
The key: A degree of personalization that’s simply unsurpassed.
Through family partnership and our own, professional assessment, we develop a deeper understanding of each resident’s needs, likes and dislikes, and unique preferences, all of which are used to create a better and more personalized approach to care.
SHINESM principles help guide caring and compassionate interactions, foster an environment of comfort and trust, and inspire engagement through individualized activities.
Using six (6) distinctive points of focus, SHINESM ensures a holistic memory care plan that’s specially designed to fit your loved one’s unique needs and abilities.
