CaraVita’s Dementia Life program is an approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care that is focused on honoring the uniqueness of each individual we serve. Though dementia may steal a person’s memories, those living with dementia can still experience moments of connection and joy. At the end of the day, our lives are not measured by the number of things we have accomplished, but the relationships that we have formed along the way. In Dementia Life, we seek to create environments where those living with dementia can continue to connect to those around them and feel a sense of accomplishment each day. Whether it is making sure someone gets a hug before they get out of bed, or finding the right jazz song to dance to in the afternoon, we want each day in the lives of those we serve to be meaningful and full of engagement.
Many times when you are caring for a loved one with dementia you often forget about engaging them in creative activities. As a caregiver you are often confronted with just making it through the day by providing assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, going to doctor appointments or fixing meals. But what if you could look beyond the challenges and focus your energy on creating Moments of Joy throughout the day.
