Programming Tailored For The Various Forms Of Dementia

Arden Courts’ programming concentrates on meeting residents’ unique needs, promoting their independence and individuality, and enhancing their health and spiritual well-being. We offer a wide array of programming to fulfill a variety of purposes and is appropriately timed to promote success and engagement. All programming is planned and supervised by trained professionals.

Individual Pursuits

Programs that aren’t adjusted to someone’s individual dementia needs and functional ability are not effective. They may prefer to stroll outdoors, prune plants, sweep the porch, sand wood or, for example, work on a word game. Individual Pursuits have been created with these individuals in mind. Many, including individuals diagnosed with atypical dementias, often benefit from individual pursuits versus large group programming.

Engagement Therapy Treatment®

Our Engagement Therapy Treatment (ETT) program integrates unique life experiences of the past with present interests. Based on personal and historic information, ETT programs are developed to help residents socialize and share with others. Each ETT program is personalized based on cognitive and functional ability. This joining of past and present maximizes abilities and provides a particularly therapeutic environment.

Lifestyle Programming

Programs enable our residents to continue their day-to-day functions and provide structure. Everyday tasks such as making the bed, performing light housekeeping, setting the table and folding the laundry are all examples of life skills programming. Successful completion of familiar tasks can help residents feel productive and good about themselves.

Namaste Care

Namaste comes from the Hindu term meaning, “honoring the spirit within.” The focus is to engage persons living in the latter stages of dementia with a “loving touch”in an environment that nurtures and stimulates the senses. The environment is carefully created with scents of lavender, soft music, nature scenes, hydration and nurturing for attention to the senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and vision.
