At AltaVita Memory Care Centre, we recognize that engaging, meaningful activities and events are a key component of effective memory care. Our health and wellness programming provides ample opportunity to enhance each individual’s abilities and skills. We understand that social interaction is an important part of maintaining and strengthening friendships and family bonds. As such, we structure our recreational and social activities to support this belief.
From exercise to singing, massage to speech therapy, current events and other daily programming at AltaVita Memory Care Centre, we offer a wide variety of stimulating activities. Each resident receives a plan of daily programming tailored to their needs, strengths and desires.
There are countless benefits of therapeutic massage, and at AltaVita Memory Care Centre, we understand that the healing power of touch can have a remarkable effect on individuals suffering from memory-related illnesses like Alzheimer’s. Along with physical benefits like pain relief and improved range of movement, massage therapy can relieve stress, calm and agitated mind and improve mood. Our highly-trained staff is educated in the latest massage techniques.
As we age, certain aspects of personal grooming and care can become more difficult. Caring for our feet can become especially challenging for older individuals with memory-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s. That’s why AltaVita Memory Care Centre provides a podiatrist to oversee the foot care of our residents.
One area that can present more and more difficulty as we age is dental hygiene, particularly for those with memory-related illnesses. Many memory-related illnesses affect how individuals eat, which can in turn affect dental hygiene. AltaVita Memory Care Centre provides a certified dental hygienist to regularly care for the oral health of all our residents.
