Family Support

  • Orientation – We get to know family members and they get to know us through an assessment of hopes, needs and fears on the journey.
  • Education – We provide seminars on various types of dementia and the disease progression that help ease fears of the unknown and help families set realistic expectations for the future.
  • Communication Instruction – These presentations educate family members on how to have positive visits and provide techniques to improve verbal and physical communication.
  • Sensitivity Training – We hold seminars that provide the experience of dementia, including physical, sensory and cognitive loss.
  • Family Support Groups – We’re in this together. Our monthly meetings provide a supportive and empathetic setting where loved ones can feel safe to openly express their joys, insights and concerns.

As people age, they receive several benefits from proper nutrition including higher energy levels and increased mental capacity.  Meals can be challenging due to  a slower metabolism, changes in taste, and other health issues.

At Peregrine Senior Living, we provide a fine dining experience and strive to meet the nutritional needs of your loved one.  We serve dietician approved, tasty, balanced meals which appeal to the diner's senses and appetite.

Below is an example of our daily menu.

At Peregrine, we recognize that healthy people have active minds, bodies, and souls, so we make sure to design multiple activities every week to promote physical health, social interaction, intellectual stimulation, feeling productive and spiritual enrichment.
