Windrose at Weymouth is a secure and intimate memory care setting where residents enjoy the company of neighbors, friends and family. We lovingly focus on the person, not the disease.
At Windrose, ThriveCare® is both our lifestyle and our therapy program. This unique holistic program of nurturing care is offered to every resident. Windrose is exclusively for seniors with memory loss, therefore, we regularly train our entire staff in techniques specific to Alzheimer’s and related disorders. This unique approach is how we incorporate the latest in advanced research and personalize it to each resident’s interests and needs every day.
We know in that in normal communication what you say is of primary importance. However, in the case of seniors who are losing their ability to process information, how you say something is more important. Our communications training is extensive, unique, and deeply meaningful to our residents and staff.
We have learned that consistency is vital to our residents. We begin each day with slow, comforting waking routines as well as a nutritious breakfast. The day continues with easy warm up activities to help residents gain confidence. After lunch, each resident continues the day with more active, physical, and mental activities designed in a personalized manner. For example, our exclusive Kitchen Memories® cooking program is a favorite afternoon treat. The rhythm of the day winds down with a light dinner accompanied by soothing instrumental music. Comforting movies or reading aloud may occur before getting ready for a good night’s sleep.
At Windrose, we take great pride in our customized and thorough staff training for our RNs, LPNs and nurses’ aides. ThriveCare® training far exceeds state assisted living requirements and is the cornerstone of our care. We also partner with community experts and specialists in various healthcare fields to provide exceptional and holistic care for our residents.
