Since memories are the threads that join families from one generation to the next, we understand that the reality of a dementia diagnosis can be difficult. At AvantGarde Senior Living and Memory Care, our caregivers give residents and their families the support they need for living with memory loss.
We understand residents’ prolonged desire for dignity and individuality and we realize that a sense of belonging and opportunities for gratifying interactions with others is paramount. We draw on residents’ strengths, allowing them to maintain existing abilities and build on life skills for today with the right amount of assistance.
Our specially trained staff receive continuing education in how to best care for seniors with all levels of memory loss. They use appropriate, innovative techniques, memory cues, verbal and non-verbal communications to redirect and reorient residents. Their understanding and compassionate approach to residents’ behaviors and changing abilities is exceptional.
While coping with memory loss can prove to be challenging, our caregiver team at AvantGarde builds on the best memories which opens the door for residents to focus on the simple things in life – connecting and sharing precious moments with family, friends and caregivers.
