Shawnee Memory Care
Memory Care settings provide physical and emotional relief as well as peace of mind for families with a memory-challenged relative. Our Care Partners and Nurses undergo dementia-specific training. A warm, homelike environment surrounds the residents, where they find safety, comfort, and stimulation in the daily activities of the community.
Residents experience new activities, make new friends, and find new successes every day. Each day is filled with meaningful indoor and outdoor activities and engaging programs specifically designed for those dealing with memory loss. Socializing has been shown to be an important factor in maintaining as much memory function which is why we focus on nurturing connections.
Our person-centered, elder-directed care plans are called Growth and Wellness Plans, as we believe that elders with memory loss have the capacity to grow and live joyful lives with a sense of well-being. The Growth and Wellness Plans are created collaboratively with families, the elder, health care providers, and our care teams. Our nurses, medication technicians, and care partners provide empathetic, tender, kind, and competent care.
Programming includes Validation Therapy to maintain self-esteem, and to attend to the basic human needs of each individual. In addition, special attention is paid to nutrition, physical, social, and cognitive stimulation. Our Music Makes Memories™ program stimulates the limbic brain, and helps each person maintain a sense of self and purpose. Our Tiny Stories™ project allows us to record the stories we hear each day and capture them in audio recordings. The legacy of each person is maintained. Our goal is to help each individual be the best they can be despite cognitive decline while slowing the progression of impairments.
