Grand Villa offers a specially designed neighborhood where residents are free to explore, touch, and choose their own activities, allowing them to live life with a purpose®. Our exit controlled neighborhood provides all the services and amenities, enhanced with special features that meet the needs of residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
The Memory Care program blends cutting edge technology with the most current research in memory care to create activities specifically designed for Alzheimer’s. Residents are involved in daily therapeutic and recreational activities such as music therapy, pet therapy, and sensory stimulation to encourage independence and preserve dignity.
Residents live in private or companion apartments which are comfortable and inviting and include many safety features. Each apartment is equipped with state of the art motion sensors. When a motion sensor is activated, an alert is sent to the caregivers who can then respond, as needed. Special lights are also activated in and around the bathroom, which provide guiding light at night.
About the Memory Care Program
We focus on activities in Memory Care to enhance general health, personal relationships, and communication skills. We concentrate on familiar abilities to avoid frustration at not being able to accomplish an activity. We laugh, smile and make eye contact. We give lots of positive encouragement. If a resident becomes anxious or upset, we take a break. Light exercise programs help residents maintain muscles and flexibility.
If you are a caregiver for a loved one with memory challenges, we also offer respite stays of a few days, a week or longer. Participants enjoy all the services, amenities, and socialization benefits, while a family caregiver takes a break.
