Monarch Memory Care
Monarch Memory Care is a model of caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. The butterfly symbolizes the transformation that comes with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other types of memory impairment diseases. When we understand each resident’s journey, our staff can focus on individual strengths and help our residents feel a sense of normalization.
Specialized memory care communities are the best solution as residents progress with dementia or cognitive changes. In addition to providing a safe environment, memory care programs seek to delay cognitive decline while providing the opportunity for a social, independent lifestyle.
Our program is based on four pillars: caregiver education, person-centered care, social connection & meaningful engagement and family support & involvement.
Our Monarch Memory Care Program is recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association® for incorporating the evidence-based Dementia Care Practice Recommendations in the following topic areas: Alzheimer’s and dementia, person-centered care, assessment and care planning, activities of daily living, and behaviors and communication.
*The Alzheimer’s Association statement of recognition is not an endorsement of the professional training or evaluation of the care provided by the facility. The statement is valid for two years from the date of issue.
Our rehab team composed of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy works directly with residents to achieve rehab goals to get you back on track. Rehabilitation can assist residents in regaining their highest level of functioning. Treatments are offered throughout the week at our well-equipped facility by licensed professional therapists.
Our short-term rehabilitation suites are equipped with flat-screen TVs, telephones, daily newspaper services, state-of-the-art therapy equipment, and the services of our physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
Our team develops comprehensive, individualized care plans to maximize residents’ physical, social, and emotional independence, safely and quickly.
Our goal for residents is simple: to help individuals to live dignified and optimally independent lives. We tailor each individual’s therapy plan to his or her unique needs.
Our Physical Therapists work with residents in training for increased mobility, gait stability, posture and positioning. Exercise programs are implemented to increase muscle function, coordination and endurance. Individualized treatment may also include joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range of motion, wound care, and pain management. Fall Prevention and education are also provided.
Our Speech-Language Pathologists address communication and swallowing dysfunction. Treatment plans can include recovery of speech, language, and memory skills. Activities for memory, orientation, and cognitive abilities can be implemented. Oral muscle strength and functioning required for speaking and swallowing as well as appropriate/safe diet recommendations can be designed for individual needs.
Our Occupational Therapists work with residents in education and training in such areas as dressing, bathing, eating, grooming, and other activities of daily living. Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical barriers can be recommended. Strength and coordination exercises are implemented to increase more independence in daily activities.
