FAMILY CONNECT MEMORY CARE’S INNOVATION

CALL-IN PROGRAM

When your loved one is confronted with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it’s difficult to know all the answers. However, when you call Lauren at Family Connect Care, you can get the facts you need as well as the emotional support your family deserves. With multiple packages, Family Connect offers your family help based on your own individual needs.

STIMULI

We are more than proud of developing and bringing the StimuliTM program to our homes and care management! Focusing on ongoing assessments and integrated sensory stimulation, we focus on activities to encourage, heighten socialization, concentration, mood, and self esteem for those experiencing memory and cognitive challenges, increasing responses and interactions.

MUSIC THERAPY

Plenty of research has demonstrated the connection between mental health and music. Here at Family Connect Care, our staff is trained and certified in music therapy, which allows them to treat our clients through artistic and holistic methods. Not only does music therapy assist our clients in terms of health, but it drastically improves their quality of life.

CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY

FCMC is the only memory care home utilizing this amazing, gentle, soft touch method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system. It is shown to improve the central nervous, respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, and circulatory systems, and help with PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
