in Columbus, Nebraska
Our Memory Support community is a secure environment, tailored to people living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Our community offers private or companion suites and has comfortable common areas designed to stimulate our residents’ cognitive abilities. Daily routines of bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and managing medication are customized to each resident’s needs, along with social and cognitively stimulating activities like games, music, and crafts.
We know that memory loss affects everyone differently and value each resident as an individual with different care needs. When one’s cognitive abilities change, our need for purpose, meaning, and routine continues.
Portraits Memory Support Program
Our memory care program, Portraits, creates that purpose through distinct roles and daily routines for each resident within their community. Following Montessori principles, these activities maximize that resident’s abilities – focusing on what they can do rather than what they can’t.
We strive to make these activities as relevant to the resident’s life and history as possible. Portraits is an ongoing way of life, each and every day, aimed at retaining, exercising and stimulating residents’ remaining abilities. Because we know that memory loss affects everyone differently, associates receive continuous training to apply Montessori methods to the different types of dementia.
