Memory Care in Lakewood Colorado
It sometimes seems as if those suffering from the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are living in their own separate worlds. That means that our staff is always up to the task to help overcome these barriers and help our residents regain awareness to memories that is seems they have lost.
Memory care is about elderly people whose lives are suddenly characterized by a sense of emptiness, loss, and despair. It is our job to help them express those memories that are often repeated, and to help them often remember other parts of their past that they have forgotten.
We use many years of experience to help extract a wide range of positive memories from our residents. Simples objects, such as their favorite photos, personal favorite clothes, or music can help trigger positive memories.
Once that happens, the relationship between residents and our staff quickly changes. Memory care is beneficial and vital to seniors who have dementia.
Most people with dementia begin suffering short term memory loss. However, their long term memory usually remains intact. That’s why it is good to talk about their youth and other earlier times in their lives, because they will usually remember them quite vividly.
Memory care for seniors with dementia is challenging, but at the same time it is very rewarding. Our motto at Applewood Our House is “Where new memories begin.” Those memories begin the minute our residents walk into our facilities for the first time.
