Memory / Dementia Care
Specializing in Signature, Resident-Centered Memory Care Through Generations
Memories are the threads that join families from one generation to the next. Shavano Park Senior Living’s Generations program gives residents and their families the support they need for living with memory loss. Generations offers seniors with dementia opportunities to thrive.
Dementia is a term that describes a wide range of symptoms of progressive brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. It is characterized by a decline in memory, judgment, and other thinking skills that impact a person’s ability to do things they once found easy. It reduces a person’s ability to perform self-care and everyday activities.
The supportive memory care at Shavano Park Senior Living is delivered in a kind compassionate way . . . reflective of residents’ lifestyles, routines and comfort levels. Staff engages with residents where they are, respectful of their individuality, moving in harmony with them.
Generations recognizes residents’ continued desire for dignity, a sense of belonging and opportunities for gratifying interactions with others. It draws on residents’ strengths, allows them to maintain existing abilities with an appropriate level of assistance.
The specially trained team members receive continuing education in “best practices” of dementia care. They use appropriate, progressive techniques, memory cues, verbal and non-verbal communications to redirect and reorient residents. They understand and respond compassionately to residents’ behaviors and changing abilities.
While the reality of memory loss may be difficult, Generations Memory Care at Shavano Park Senior Living helps build on the best memories possible for residents and their families. It allows residents to enjoy simple things in life – connecting and sharing precious moments.
