Our unique Sensory Stimulation program focuses on assessment and personalized activities that bring extraordinary benefits to those with cognitive challenges, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Our    Program

Through our  program, we perform ongoing assessments of each individual in our care to provide the appropriate daily sensory stimulation activities from the time he/she wakes up to bedtime.

We train our staff to create an environment that offers positive opportunities for stimulation of all the senses (smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight) as well as specific activities that target each of the senses.

Our Stimuli program goes a step further with the Hydration module! At our memory care homes, we want to give our residents opportunities to make healthy choices; with options that include apples, cucumbers, habiscus, tumeric, papaya, and/or cinnamon – to name a few – health turns into creative fun and social hour!

What is the  program?

is our flagship program, focused on providing continuous stimulation by involving and challenging all senses to interact. Consistent assessment and personalization is involved in designing targeted activities that benefit those with cognitive challenges. The goal is to conduct therapy while bringing cheer, empowerment, and tapping into the the individual’s personality, experiences, and self. Ongoing individual care assessment is an essential part of the  program.

How does the  program help?

The benefits of sensory stimulation include:

  • Heightened socialization
  • Increased concentration
  • Improved mood
  • Elevated self-esteem
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
