Mentor, OH - Assisted Living
Community size: Extra Large (100+)
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.
As soon as you step into Symphony at Mentor, an inclusive Alzheimer’s and Dementia community, you will immediately know why this is the place for your loved one to call home. Here you will find a warm, intimate, home like setting that will welcome your family member. On hand, we have a dedicated staff that will treat your loved one as one of their own. Each staff member trained in understanding the various stages of Alzheimer’s that will allow them to care for each resident with kindness, compassion, and dignity.
Through our In The Moment® memory care program, we tailor a plan that is unique to that individual, allowing our residents in our care to experience life, laughter, and joy through routine, personalization and flexibility. We also believe in giving our residents a voice. Through our resident inspired activities calendar, your loved one will be able to participate in the planning of the upcoming month’s activities based on what they want to do, inspiring them to be active, engaged and socializing every day.
Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to memory 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 We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model.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 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 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.
