We’re asked to wear a lot of hats in life like loving husband, model employee, and supportive parent, but one of the most challenging roles to fill is caregiver. Caregivers are often forced to walk fine lines, lines like being available to keep an eye on their dad in case he takes another fall, but giving him the privacy that he wants in his own home. Showing compassion and respect to their mother with memory loss, but making sure she’s eating, even if she doesn’t want to.
It’s no surprise that a lot of caregivers are riddled with senses of worry, uncertainty, and guilt. The good news is: it can get better. The caregivers and nurses in our communities have a passion for helping seniors and their families transition through aging and have experience walking the fine lines. They can be the watchdog, the friend and the confidant, but they can never take your place.
Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to care delivery. We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model.
We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as in their Dementia journey. We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well. We find it’s the spontaneous moments that have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver. Living In The Moment, is the greatest gift we can give to anyone we serve; during their journey.
What gave your mom a sense of purpose before she needed memory support? Did she love to quilt? Was she an avid volunteer? Did she always have a roast in the oven and clean pressed shirts hanging in your dad’s closet? Just because your mother needs memory care, it doesn’t mean she can’t do the things she loves anymore. We’ll find what your mom misses, what she’s searching for, and bring it back into her day to day life.
We believe that your mom should experience a mix of formal, or planned, and informal, or impromptu, interactions every day. Your mom’s days weren’t planned to a T with a calendar and deadlines before she moved into The Villas at Sunset Bay, so why should they be now?
