DEMENTIA SUPPORT GROUPS
Our Ridge communities in Utah offer monthly support groups for caregivers and loved ones to discuss Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia in a safe and educational environment. Every meeting is facilitated by an experienced staff member at the community. These meetings offer the opportunity to share personal insights, hear helpful advice, and gain encouragement from others who face the same challenges Alzheimer’s and other cognitive impairments bring. The Ridge Pinehurst will soon be adding similar support groups to its list of resident and family resources. Read why family caregivers should join a dementia support group.
MUSIC & MEMORY®
A national initiative giving those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia personalized music playlists on iPods or other digital devices, created with input from residents themselves with family and friends. These musical favorites tap deep memories and bring smiles to faces, enabling folks to feel like themselves again, socialize and stay present. Read about the benefits of music therapy for seniors.
Minding Motion for Graceful Aging
The Ridge Cottonwood and The Ridge Foothill offer this artistically driven and individualized program designed to bring physical, emotional and cognitive invigoration to older adults through an array of movements. Each class offers a purely positive combination of social engagement, creative expression and unlocked human potential.
Teepa Snow Positive Approach®
A memory care philosophy developed to build smart, compassionate responses to the challenging realities of brain change. Team members at each community are trained in Teepa’s personalized strategies and techniques to encourage more positive outcomes within the therapeutic environment. Learn more about the Teepa Snow Positive Approach for Dementia.
Sagely & LifeLoop
The Sagely Family App and LifeLoop are beautifully simple systems that allow team members to easily relay the latest community happenings to residents and families to stay seamlessly connected to their loved ones through real-time updates and photos. Learn how our senior living community uses mobile apps to keep families engaged.
Our life enrichment and wellness initiative encourages residents and team members to engage. To interest, involve, inspire and interact, with a promise of moving forward together. This philosophy is intentionally built on four cornerstones of healthy aging — social, intellectual, inspirational and physical — and honors individuality by celebrating each person’s unique story and interests. Fully recognizing that no matter where we are on life’s journey, we all have the passion to keep growing, contributing and learning.
THE MONTESSORI METHOD: FOCUSING ON ABILITY
The Montessori Approach for Dementia focuses on giving life decisions back to the individual whenever possible to help preserve a person’s individuality. Rather than defining all people with dementia as having one set of needs and abilities (and disabilities), the Montessori Method recognizes each one as unique. What can I accomplish? What brings me joy? Where do I need assistance? The Montessori philosophy is about enabling people. The Ridge Pinehurst has adopted the Montessori Approach for Dementia to help lead the way toward fostering greater independence for as long as possible among residents dealing with memory loss.
