At Briarcliffe, we are passionate about improving dementia care with a personalized approach and positive partnerships in Memory Care. We firmly believe that the only way to improve this type of care is by creating strong relationships based on trust with our residents, treating them as individuals and not just their condition and making sure their opinions are acknowledged and respected.
Building Authentic Connections
Our care partners go the extra mile by truly engaging with each individual in our Memory Care community to foster growth, build authentic relationships, and enhance their well-being. This encourages positive partnerships between both our staff and residents while allowing us to customize care based on the specific interests and requirements of every person we serve.
Promoting Inclusive Decision-Making
People with dementia should be engaged in decision-making whenever feasible to preserve their sense of self and identity, while simultaneously cementing positive relationships between them and those they trust. Additionally, we encourage families to take part in the planning process for their loved one’s care so that individual needs can anticipated.
Celebrating Aging Couples
When dementia is in its later stages among older couples, the love between them still remains steadfast; though they may not be able to express themselves as they once did, their bond can still be felt. We strongly recommend families commemorate anniversaries and birthdays of those special loved ones – these moments are lasting memories that shape a beautiful love story like no other.
Creating an Environment of LGBTQ+ Equality and Inclusion
At our senior living communities, we honor all seniors with the utmost respect and dignity – no matter their race, religion, gender identity or sexuality. Our care partners are well trained in inclusive healthcare practices to ensure that every resident lives a life free of discrimination. We make sure LGBTQ+ residents feel comfortable being themselves as they age gracefully while receiving supportive senior living options from us.
3 Major Benefits of Positive Partnerships in Memory Care
Strengthening positive partnerships in Memory Care can greatly improve the wellbeing of your loved one. From improved sleep to greater self-confidence, take a look at how this person-centered approach of care can benefit them with these three advantages:
Making meaningful connections in Memory Care can help slow the progression of cognitive decline by stimulating your brain’s mental recall capabilities. Socialization helps to keep these areas active and functioning, which can lessen both the speed and intensity of symptoms associated with this type of condition.
By providing a sense of security and comfort, we can help reduce stress levels for those with dementia. This allows Memory Care residents to feel more relaxed and comfortable.
Enhanced well-being is a result of strong relationships. Exercise, nutrition, sleep and mood balance are all positively impacted through meaningful partnerships with Memory Care residents. This encourages them to take the lead on their lifestyle which empowers them to feel more confident in themselves while cultivating an optimistic perspective on life.
