Arbor Village understands the challenges and stress that memory diseases can cause for both the individual who is coping with the disease and their family, and we understand how the disease can affect every individual differently.
Our dementia care program uses a technique for dementia care that is called the Gentlecare© approach. This means that residents are able to retain a sense of autonomy throughout the disease process. By providing the individual with autonomy and power in the decision-making process, each resident is able to follow their own schedule instead of using predetermined routines in the aspects of their daily life while living in a safe, secure and familiar environment. The level of stress is reduced, combative behaviors decrease, the level of powerlessness decreases, and residents can grow in a friendly, positive environment with constant care.
Arbor Village is a secured environment where individuals who face dementia and other memory diseases can receive the quality care they need and the specialized programming they deserve. Our comprehensive memory care program, allows us to provide our residents with an enhanced lifestyle that helps them maintain their independence and feel safe in a comfortable and supportive environment.
The community was designed with the special needs of our residents in mind. The home-like décor is comfortable for both residents and family members, while allowing staff to effectively provide the best possible care and the services our residents need.
