A Positive and Personalized Approach to Memory Care (PPAC)
Moments is based on the Positive Approach® to Care (PAC) and the Person-Centered Approach® (PCA) that emphasizes each individual’s abilities and supports and respects personal choice. By focusing on the positive aspects of each resident’s life, we “stay in the moment,” seeing what is beautiful, and still available, for each person with whom we share time.
A Step Further
Moments takes the essentials of PAC and PCA and builds upon them, elevating Memory Care to new heights of dignity, personalization and joy. We get to know our residents. We respect them as the people they are. We build trust and form bonds. We interact positively, promoting and supporting their abilities. We focus on what they can do, what makes them happy, what makes them smile. Right here. Right now. In this very moment.
A Specialized Memory Care Team
Our Designated Care Specialists (DCS) are certified in PAC and PCA. Our team participates in monthly classes and regular training. We are engaged, hands-on and committed to our residents. We stay up to date on new techniques, breakthroughs and leading-edge therapies. We also encourage our DCS to do their own studies, find what works with their own residents, and share insights with the team.
Meeting Residents Where They Are
While Alzheimer’s disease and dementia may have predictable paths, we know that no two residents are at the same place in their journey. Every individual has unique needs, personal preferences and abilities. We respect and honor them all.
Moments starts by creating a detailed history and review of the new resident. This essential information guides our DCS teams in developing personalized Memory Care plans for each resident. These plans outline the most appropriate support for the resident while promoting his or her independence and appreciating choices. We build interpersonal relationships and learn each person’s likes, dislikes, habits, needs, etc., so we can provide the loving care, dignified support, personal choice and joyful lifestyle our residents deserve.
Each DCS is fully involved in the daily living of your loved one, providing a sense of comfort, familiarity and sanctuary. From delivering care to sharing meals and enjoying special moments during the day, a DCS is there, by your loved one’s side, at all times.
