To Cherish and Nurture the Person
Memory Care at The Carrington features the renowned Heartfelt CONNECTIONS ‒ A Memory Care Program®, offering those with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias the care, respect, dignity and optimal quality of life loved ones so want for them. In The Carrington’s Memory Care neighborhood, our highly trained and caring staff dedicate each day to individualized life-affirming activities to enrich the lives of residents by embracing and celebrating everything they do. This person-centered, activities-focused philosophy is grounded in the belief that the abilities that remain for each person are far more important than what is lost.
A focus on three research-based components of personal connection helps to keep the “person” at the center of care.
- Personal Care: Being able to continue with simple things like dressing, washing one’s face or combing hair play a significant role in self-esteem.
- Personal Productivity: Each person needs to feel like they are contributing. Based on abilities, activities like baking or gardening provide a sense of accomplishment.
- Personal Leisure: Staying engaged in relaxing lifelong pursuits like reading or walking create an atmosphere of continuity.
