Estancia Senior Living is ready to serve the memory care needs of the Fallbrook community by offering its distinctive Montessori-Based Memory Care program to its residents. As part of its outreach to caregivers and families whose loved ones are affected by Alzheimer’s or other dementias, Estancia Senior Living will host a free dementia education virtual workshops over the next few months
These workshops are vitally important as the global impact of dementia is staggering. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, as of 2015 there were 9.9 million new cases world-wide with one diagnosed every 3 seconds. With that in mind, all of us will be affected by Alzheimer’s in one way or another and understanding the disease becomes increasingly important to capably deal with afflicted family members and loved ones.
These virtual workshops are based on Estancia Senior Living’s exclusive memory care program: MONTESSORI MOMENTS IN TIME™ (MMIT). The goals of MMIT at Estancia Senior Living are to enhance living for those with memory impairment by the guidance of the program’s five directional paths. Each directional path has the resident and family in mind to encourage independence and help deal with the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. These paths include Family Connections, Health and Wellness, Dining Experience, Life Engagement, and Team Promise. Family Connections focus on the well-being of our families through virtual workshops, social connections, volunteer opportunities, support, and education. Health and Wellness is based on providing satisfying experiences, promoting independence, and encouraging positive behavior while maintaining respect and dignity. The Dining Experience leverages meals as a time to reminisce, create new memories, maximize independence, and promote socializing, all in an inviting, safe environment. Life Engagement includes scheduled programs that support the whole person allowing residents to function at their highest potential, giving them a sense of purpose and overall well-being. Team Promise focuses on developing care partnerships through ongoing education and training.
“When someone in the family has dementia, life can take a traumatic detour,” states Sue Johnston, National Director of Memory Care, Meridian Senior Living. “We recognize the obstacles you face and know that it is critical for you to have support, education, and an understanding of how vital it is to take care of yourself.”
