Maintaining excellent quality of life for memory care patients depends in no small part on keeping them active, engaged, and socialized. At Arbor Terrace Lakeway, we not only have years of experience at caring for dementia patients, but we’ve also developed a unique and specialized approach to memory care that is second to none.Staying Connected
Our Evergreen memory care neighborhood is uniquely designed to provide the care and attention each of our residents needs to maximize their quality of life. We begin with a staff of highly trained and skilled professionals who are highly knowledgeable when it comes to helping memory care residents enjoy life to the fullest. Then, building connections between staff and residents (as well as residents and other residents) becomes central to our staff's focus. Research has shown that engagement with others is key to maintaining healthy lifestyles and outlooks.
Not only do we engage residents in areas of their interests, preferences, and wishes, but we also believe it is important to connect with and involve family and friends. Keeping our memory care residents anchored in familiar things and people helps them enjoy life to the fullest.
Individual Care Plans
Our extraordinary approach continues by developing an individual care plan for each resident. Because we see each person as an individual with personal needs, desires, wishes, and preferences, we ensure that each aspect of care is tailored to the uniqueness of that person. This is all part of our personalized approach to delivering the very best care possible for each resident.
Each member of our team completes training in cognitive management and has developed the skills, knowledge, and compassion required for working with dementia patients. Each patient's care plan includes medication management plus structured activities and social events tailored to that person's desires. At Arbor Terrace Lakeway, we stay abreast of new developments in dementia treatments and integrate these advances in our approach to dementia management. Because of this, we believe that we are on the cutting edge of memory care delivery for our industry.
Dining with DignityⓇ
Maintaining proper levels of nutrition is essential for everyone, and especially for those with dementia. At Arbor Terrace, we have an award-winning program called Dining with Dignity, designed specially for residents who may need extra assistance at mealtime. Dining with Dignity meals are carefully prepared by specially trained chefs to ensure that each meal provides the same nutrition as regularly prepared meals. These meals are prepared for easy chewing and swallowing and presented in small, bite-sized portions to facilitate dining. Most importantly, the meals are served in an elegant plate-and-table setting that allows residents to enjoy dining with dignity, independence, and self-respect.
Safety and comfort are No. 1 on our list of priorities at Arbor Terrace Lakeway. With this in mind, we have created an environment specially designed to ensure that memory care residents are protected and secure. First, we have a choice of comfortable apartment floor plans that are outfitted with luxury apartments and essential safety features. And, the skilled staff at our Evergreen memory care community are trained to assist with toileting, bathing, or dressing as needed.
With more than 30 years' experience working with memory care residents, our background and knowledge has helped guide and formulate our facility's designs. Careful attention has been paid to property details, from safety features in apartments to doors leading to outside spaces. Our facility designs stand out as examples of a thoughtful and security-centered integration of living areas, shared spaces, and dining rooms. At Arbor Terrace, we maintain our focus on the well-being and engagement of our memory care residents.
Structured guidance and activity programs are other components of Arbor Terrace's comprehensive memory care approach. At our Evergreen community, our counselors plan activities and events designed with our residents’ unique desires and preferences in mind. Challenging, fun, and entertaining events are planned based on individual care plans and offered on a scheduled daily basis. These activities can be either internal Arbor Terrace events focused on socializing, or trips out into the wider community. In all cases, activities are designed to help residents stay engaged and thriving.
