A Fresh Approach to Memory Care
Memory Care Facilities that Put People First
The person-centered approach: That’s what makes every Poet’s Walk memory care location one of the premier memory care facilities in the country. We believe in holistic care that intrigues the mind, moves the body and inspires the spirit. The result is a positive community of residents and caretakers focused on quality living.
Our state-of-the-art facilities offer indoor and outdoor settings for hobbies, recreation and quality time with loved ones. Private apartment options give individuals an independent lifestyle, while nursing is available on a 24-hour basis.
The Care Flowers philosophy in our Spring Cottage Memory Care Environment is a successful communication tool for care partners and family members. These designations help everyone have the best possible interactions with residents as they are in the present. It is an especially useful tool so family members can understand how to approach and interact when their loved one is acting in unfamiliar ways. The Care Flower system consciously avoids negative language or overtones throughout the residence.
Residents are identified as a rose, daisy, iris, violet, or morning glory based on their unique characteristics, preferences and abilities. This approach is centered on every individual’s abilities, emotions and cognitive capacities—not their impairments or disease.
Technology as a Partner in Memory Care
Two other tools we rely on include PointClickCare’s Point of Care (POC) technology, which gives nurses and caregivers the ability to document and track assigned tasks–and access healthcare information in a pinch. This allows for more quality time spent engaging with our residents. The Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) system makes documentation more efficient and accurate, and incorporates prescription medication order fulfillment to meet the needs of each resident.
