Every Day to the Fullest

Before a move to Branchlands memory care community, families participate with our healthcare professional in developing an Individualized Service Care Plan that reflects a resident’s needs, abilities, and stage of impairment. The goal is for residents to live their lives with purpose in an environment that ensures safety and security.

Every facet of a service care plan is focused on enriching each day, moment by moment. Routines structured around each individual’s personal needs provide stability while carefully planned activities promote a feeling of accomplishment. Sensory stimulation—aromatherapy, gentle massage, reassuring color choices, and nostalgic music—enables residents to reconnect with the world even when they may not be able to express that connection. Therapy may center on reminiscence kits, visiting pets, and creative arts. It is not unusual for families to see that their loved ones have regained some capacity as they are encouraged to stay engaged.
