DAYBREAK ACTIVITIES

Our memory care program capitalizes on our residents' individual strengths for successful interaction. Strengthening fine and gross motor skills, refining reading ability, and increasing socialization remain important goals to our program. In addition, we also focus on simple enjoyment as daily tasks and interactions can be unfamiliar and distressing to those with memory impairments. Montessori philosophy and validation therapy are incorporated to ensure each resident feels good about each interaction.

Montessori programming is based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and adapts principles to be used with memory care programs. Montessori therapies involve interactions in a supportive, failure-free environment taking into account each individual's strengths. Participants work in a methodical way, using repetition, to gradually build skills and progress to the next level.

Validation therapy was defined by Naomi File and is a technique to validate the reality of those with dementia. Validation supports the person's feelings and emotions in whatever time and space their current reality is. Validation gives credence to their feelings and uses reminiscing to allow the person to verbalize their thoughts.

Favorite music, hobbies, and even household chores are celebrated in micro-environments. Created with familiar objects in a familiar space, the residents relate to the world they still understand. These environments provide wonderfully therapeutic interactions.

Family input is key to our success in planning activities that our residents truly enjoy. Many of our activities come from the friends, family and other connections. Please see some of our regular activities below.

Planned activities are included in the monthly rent. Below is a sampling of some of the activities available for residents suffering with a dementia related illness.
