The SHINE memory care program, a nationally recognized and award-winning program for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, is the result of our commitment to providing exceptional care. We recognize that your loved one’s condition requires specialized treatment, which is why we have invested in creating a unique approach to addressing all aspects of memory loss.
What is the SHINE program?
The SHINE program is a collaborative effort that provides seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory issues a safe, supportive environment where they can live their golden years. The program is designed for aging family members needing extra care and attention. It’s also a great option for family caregivers who need some relief from caring for loved ones at home.
Whether you are looking for respite care or in-home senior care services to help your loved one stay independent, we have programs that will fit your needs.
Why was the SHINE Memory Care Program developed?
SHINE was created to address a need for a new type of memory care program that was both more effective and less expensive than other options. Many existing programs were found to be ineffective, including those that were designed to help people with Alzheimer’s Disease. This can be because they rely heavily on medication or isolation to control symptoms, which often has negative side effects and is extremely expensive for families who pay for them out-of-pocket (Medicare does not cover long-term care outside of nursing homes).
How Does the Program Work?
The SHINE Memory Care Program has been nationally recognized for its ability to provide residents with 24/7 care and social interaction with other residents. The program also includes activities and stimulation that promote learning, socialization, and physical fitness. Finally, the program is designed to feel at home by providing one-on-one attention in a home-like environment.
Who Can Benefit From The SHINE Program?
The SHINE Program is a memory care program that assists aging adults and their families. Family members with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory-related issues can all benefit from this compassionate and personal approach to care. Aging adults experiencing problems with daily living tasks, such as bathing or dressing, can also benefit from the assistance of SHINE Caregivers. Those diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia may qualify for our specialized Memory Care Program at no cost based on income guidelines.
The SHINE care team understands that adults in their golden years will eventually lose their independence and require support to remain safe in their own homes; however, they also recognize that many want to stay as independent as possible for as long as possible. The goal is not only to provide quality care but also to maintain each resident’s dignity and respect for themselves in light of whatever challenges they may face during their journey through life’s later years.
As you can see, the SHINE program is a great resource for both caregivers and their loved ones with memory issues. If you or someone you know needs assistance learning more about this program, contact us today!
