When it comes to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, we often see memory care communities focus only on basic needs. But, a basic approach to memory care doesn’t take into account the unique challenges your loved one faces as time passes. At Peregrine, we’re redefining dementia and Alzheimer’s care to make sure that you can hold onto what makes your loved one unique for as long as possible.
The Peregrine Way is our unique approach to memory care that helps improve the quality of life for residents and their families through unsurpassed care. It all starts with a simple truth. Just because someone is in need of memory care, doesn’t mean it’s the end of their personal growth and fulfillment. The goal of our memory care community is to gently stimulate and connect with your loved one through personalized support just for them.
With Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, we know that short-term memories are affected the most. This means that those in need of memory care live in their long-term memories. At Peregrine, we embrace the significance of long-term memories and the meaningful effect they can have on your loved one.
The Peregrine Way identifies opportunities to engage your loved one’s long-term memory on their own terms. It’s an innovative approach that uses their meaningful past to help forge a brighter present and future. After all, what makes our personalities unique is our personal collection of memories that ultimately shape who we are. Classical music, religion, familiar animals or tracing genealogy are just some of the ways we stimulate the long-term memories of your loved one.
In the end, all of the memory care activities we offer are designed to help foster engaging new experiences that are familiar to the long-term memories where your loved one resides.
We know the challenges that come with being a caregiver for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or another kind of dementia. When you choose a Peregrine memory care community for your loved one, you’ll have more time for meaningful connections. We’re interested in improving the quality of life for not only your loved one, but for your entire family.
That’s why we have an entire host of family support services. From informational seminars to sensitivity training to increase empathy, your loved one and family are fully embraced at every Peregrine memory care community.
There’s no question that Alzheimer’s and dementia is a family disease. If you are serving as the primary caregiver for your loved one, it can be a stressful and overwhelming role. If you find yourself seeking a better solution, it might be time to consider a memory care community. The memory care programs at Peregrine go beyond basic care to help you preserve what makes your loved one so unique.
As part of The Peregrine Way, we offer opportunities to stimulate your loved one’s mind, body and spirit. Learn more about our unique approach to memory care today by contacting our team.
