There is no cookie-cutter treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We understand your loved one requires a personal approach. We call it “person-centered care.” It is a philosophy that guides us every day. Our memory care programs fit the person, not the other way around.
How do we deliver person-centered care?
We practice the Best Friends Approach™, developed by Virginia Bell and David Troxel. Simply put, we believe that what a person with dementia needs most is a best friend—someone who is in their corner and looking out for them.
We hire caregivers with “knack.” Caregivers with knack empathize, remain loving and positive and dedicated to helping your loved one feel safe, secure and valued. Above all, they preserve the person’s dignity. And they do it all with a healthy dose of patience, flexibility and humor.
We start with “a life’s story.” Your loved one’s story helps our caregivers visualize the special moments in life. It then becomes the foundation on which we tailor your loved one’s day.
We provide a private and secure environment. The Arbours offers the best care possible for your loved one, along with comfortable, secure grounds and apartments, all within our beautiful retirement campus.
