Alzheimer’s and related dementias steal parts of our loved ones, but who they are and who they have been remains deeply rooted. Our Alzheimer’s/Dementia Life Enrichment Program (LEP) is a Certified Dementia Special Care unit as designated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Our Life Enrichment Memory Care program focuses on each of our residents as individuals, respecting their personal histories, preferences and routines for the best possible quality of life.
Our certified dementia program is modeled after our memory care neighborhood at PineHill Assisted Living with a similar homelike setting. From our décor to our furnishings, we have created an environment mirroring our LEP at PineHill to ease the transition for assisted living memory care residents when they need a higher level of memory care.
Our day room is furnished like a family room with comfortable seating, a flat screen TV, and a large fish tank. Shadow boxes outside of resident rooms remind them of significant pieces of their personal history and assist in wayfinding.
We follow the habilitation approach to memory care, joining residents within their reality for happier, more successful days. Enhanced activities are offered all day and into the evening to accommodate personal schedules.
