Memory Lane Program
Our Memory Lane special care program provides assistance and care for those who may suffer from memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s, which commonly results in dementia. Each resident in Summerset’s Memory Lane Program shares the basic services and amenities offered to all of our assisted living residents, as well as special activities developed by the Sunshine Club.
We don’t separate our residents from one another, rather we provide extra support for the residents who need it. Dementia patients could require additional services, such as wander management, and we provide special staff training.
Memory Care Activities
All of the activities provided at Summerset are focused on providing appropriate amounts of stimulation and exercise, allowing residents to enjoy their daytime and nighttime hours. With the daily activities provided by our memory lane program, our residents are encouraged to maintain interests and relationships, remember fond moments, and continue to express themselves.
Entering an assisted living facility does not mean that residents can’t enjoy their lives. Many residents feel like this environment allows them to enjoy all the activities they never had time for before. They can enjoy reading, crafting, hobbies, music, dance, and so much more. We want our residents to love life at Summerset, and we are always adding new programs and activities to our offerings to better serve our residents.
The stimulating activities provided by the Sunshine Club and assisted living community can help people with memory impairments feel engaged, stimulate memories, make emotional connections, calm anxiety, and lessen irritability. Our senior care staff can assist those with memory challenges. We help them enjoy their lives by offering them delightful pursuits, and we make sure they are in the safe environment needed to have a great quality of life.
Some of the activities our residents enjoy include the following:
- Arts and crafts
- Visits from special guests
- Music and games
- Dance programs
