Dementia Care

Together the staff of the memory care unit in conjunction with the doctors, nurses, CNA’ s and activities staff strive to provide care that enhances the lives and maintains the dignity of our residents who have different forms of dementia. We work hand in hand with the primary care physician, pharmacy and the psychiatrist to review medications. Our staff is always striving to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible. The CNA’ s work to provide personal care that may be needed to maintain each residents dignity while allowing the resident the opportunity to continue to do as much for themselves as possible. The nurses, CNA’s, and activities department work together to help each resident enjoy daily activities such as: arts and crafts, popcorn, & movies, current events and outdoor activities as weather permits.

The memory care unit at Valencia Hills is a shining example of our commitment to meet the needs of our community. Residents afflicted with certain memory impairments require a different and diverse level of services. Our residents are allowed to freely walk the unit in a safe and secure manner. This freedom enhances their quality of life and allows you to rest easy knowing they are safe.

Memories in the making Art Therapy Program

Memories in the making is an art program for individuals in the early and middle stages of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. The program focuses on creative expression and allows the participant to communicate and express themselves through visual arts. The artwork that the participant produces is a means of expression that the participant can share with friends and family. It is not uncommon for the participant to paint memories from long ago or thoughts and feelings that they may no longer be able to find the words to express. If you would like more information on this special program please contact us and speak with our staff, we would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. The program is directed by a specially trained art facilitator who understands and is trained to work with people with memory disorders.
