Our approach to Memory Care is based on the following innovative programs: Ridgeline Management Company’s signature program, “Moments” is developed to meet the needs of each of our residents through all stages of dementia. The program will attempt to maintain a safe, secure, and predictable environment that fosters a sense of independence and well-being. It will improve residents’ self-esteem through meaningful activities designed around each person’s interests, talents, and abilities.
At Ridgeline, we train our caregivers within to educate them in all stages of dementia (early, middle, and late). Not only will we teach our caregivers how to take care of the residents but also themselves. Because let’s face it, caring for others is hard work.
Our Memory Care Neighborhood is a place for our residents to receive the support and assistance they need, while feeling as much “at home” as possible. The goal of “Moments” program is to design an environment for our residents living with dementia to maximize awareness and orientation. We are here to help retain abilities and maintain their independence as long as possible. It is designed to fulfill Ridgeline’s mission: creating an environment where moments of joy, independence, and wellness provided each and every day.
Alzheimer's and other age-related dementias are defined as a set of symptoms resulting from a degenerative brain disease. It manifests itself in a progressive loss of memory, language and judgment.
Despite progressive losses, we believe the memory-impaired can still continue to learn, communicate effectively, and live a purposeful life. Each person's life story is unique and we hope to have the opportunity to help them tell it and continue to write it!
