Expressions Memory Care
Itís all about rhythm.
When an illness or disability brings about memory loss,
confusion or disorientation, these people need special
care. Activity programs designed for healthy adults are
often too stressful for a person with dementia.
Expressions Memory Care is
different. Itís based on the philosophy that activity
is more effective when itís becomes a rhythm of everyday
We focus on the activities of daily living, which are
challenging enough for individuals with memory
care needs. We incorporate effective communication
and memory keys into a personalized program that accommodates
each individualís unique interests and abilities.
Most importantly, we take care of the details so you can
focus on the more positive aspects of the relationship
with your loved one.
PEP Ė Personal Exercise Program
PEP is a personal exercise program developed by Prestige
Senior Living to enhance the independence, strength and
energy of assisted living residents. The optional program
supports aging by helping residents stay healthy, safe
and strong. Participants also benefit from improved circulation,
greater endurance, better balance and an overall boost
The program is based on an individualized program of simple
exercises developed by the PEP coordinator according to
physician recommendations and the residentís personal
goals. Results are monitored continually and the program
is modified if needs change.
The PEP coordinator also oversees each session and provides
participants with one-on-one encouragement and assistance
as needed Ė similar to a personal trainer.
If appropriate, the coordinator may suggest that the resident
ask their primary care physician for a referral to a physical
or occupational therapist. The coordinator may also work
closely with residentís physical, occupational or other
therapist to help complete a prescribed exercise regime
or continue recommended exercise after therapy is discontinued.
The end of life is a period in which every individual
deserves compassion, dignity and respect. Our Hospice
services provide our residents with the medical care and
emotional support they need to make the most of the final
chapters of their lives.
Our focus is to help relieve pain and other symptoms so
residents can live comfortable and alert while maintaining
a reasonable course of medical care 24 hours a day. We
work cooperatively with the resident and their family
to coordinate the delivery of psychological, emotional
and spiritual support consistent with each residentís
beliefs and wishes.
We honor living wills or advance directives and welcome
the involvement of outside counselors, therapists, social
workers, aides and volunteers. Visitors of all ages are
also welcome to visit residents under hospice care at
any time during the day or night.
