Our goal is to structure each day with experiences that improve the lives of our Alzheimer’s residents. We use reminiscence therapy to recall life history and social interaction with peers to affirm dignity, identity and self-esteem. Through “failure-free” activities, we strive to provide positive reinforcement. Our program is guided by a creative, innovative staff that is sensitive to the residents’ individual needs.
We offer educational seminars, public forums, community support groups, volunteer training, a speaker’s bureau, intergenerational programming with educational institutions, and internship programs.
