Dementia & Memory Care in Denver, CO
Honoring the memories of yesterday, respecting the moments of today.
At The Ridge Pinehurst, we believe Alzheimer’s/dementia care should be rooted in a reverence for every resident’s personal story. It’s the reason our Lakewood memory care professionals work tirelessly to provide the comforts of home and the compassion of family.
And unlike other, more traditional memory care facilities in Denver, CO, we use empathy, insight, and technology to direct our response toward individual needs and desires. Even the physical environment encourages residents to find a meaningful sense of belonging, purpose and security – with the seamless protection of assistive monitoring technology.
The forward-thinking programs offered at The Ridge Pinehurst provide better outcomes for memory care residents by celebrating personal life experiences and focusing on the abilities an individual still retains. The innovative Montessori Approach for Dementia is one example of how we do this.
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 lossContact us to learn more about the defining characteristics of our approach to memory care.
