UNIQUE MEMORY CARE PROGRAM FEATURES
We feature the iN2L (It’s Never Too Late) technology systems, providing meaningful engagement tools for older adults with dementia and other cognitive impairments. These programs are specially designed to empower individuals to connect, engage and enjoy life.
We use light, sound, scents, and music to create a therapeutic environment to help individuals feel less fearful, less stressed and more relaxed. This area is where families can visit one-on-one with their loved one, and caregivers can redirect residents who might be anxious to engage in a more pleasant, calming experience.
Sensory stimulation incorporates aromatherapy with warm towels, essential oils, and familiar music. This approach is used during various life engagements, as well as during significant moments throughout the day to help trigger appetite and provide orientation and personal validation to residents.
Life Story Boxes
Life story boxes allow residents to compile objects that connect them to the things they love or that bring them joy or comfort. These boxes are located outside each apartment door, and helps residents to identify their own apartment. We work with family members to determine what cherished mementos are a good fit.
EXCEPTIONAL APARTMENT DESIGN
Apartments for our Georgia memory care residents are specially designed to promote a safe, comfortable, and familiar environment. Each of our one and two-bedroom apartments include features to ensure safety and security, including keyless entry, safe carpeting, handicap accessible bathrooms, emergency pull-cords, and more.VIEW OUR FLOOR PLANS
SAFE & SECURE ENVIRONMENT
For our residents with memory loss, safety and security are crucial. To ensure that residents are kept safe, we require staff-assisted entry/exit to our community after business hours and at all times in our memory care unit. Additionally, we have implemented a sign-in/sign-out system, identifying all visitors and credentialed providers.
Our memory care communities are also equipped with features such as one point of entry and exit, a secure interior courtyard, emergency phone lines, and more.
Life Enrichment activities are the heart of our Silver Linings Memory Care Program. We offer an array of engaging activities designed to accommodate all ability levels and are provided throughout the day. While one group may be playing card games, another group may participate in a sing-along or simple tactile exercises like rolling dough or planting flowers.
The key to success is keeping the days fluid and our resident’s routines flexible, so they have the opportunity to enjoy wonderful moments and positive experiences throughout their day.VIEW A SAMPLE ACTIVITY SCHEDULE
