Why Choose Dial Retirement Communities for Memory Care?
We’ll help take away the stress you feel in wondering if your loved ones are safe when living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other memory impairments. Our memory care communities provide the safe, comfortable, and engaging spaces your loved ones need to help them find the many moments of joy in each day.
We accomplish this through specially designed activities that our incredible team members lead each day. This comes through playing games, listening to residents’ favorite music, doing crafts, and scheduling other activities that help individuals living with memory care needs.
Dial Retirement Communities is proud to feature the I’m Still Here® Approach in our Memory Care program.
The designation as an I’m Still Here® Center of Excellence is only awarded to a few organizations each year. To achieve this certification each organization must make a commitment to participate in a rigorous training and implementation program developed by the Hearthstone Institute. As part of this program all of the staff working in our memory care units as well as many others throughout our community, took part in a six-month on-site program, which included extensive training in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, communication techniques, and life enrichment. This training has created a team of true Dementia Specialists here at Dial Retirement Communities as well as a Dementia Friendly culture throughout our organization.
In partnering with I’m Still Here® Dial Retirement Communities has joined a network of professionals associated with a brand that has become synonymous world-wide with excellence in caring for the memory impaired.
Through engagement, the I’m Still Here™ approach has been shown to reduce the common symptoms associated with dementia such as anxiety, agitation, aggression and apathy – the 4 A’s ™ — while significantly improving quality of life.
The I’m Still Here® approach represents a profound paradigm shift in dementia care by creating an unprecedented level of true engagement for persons living with memory challenges. Through environmental adaptions, specialized communication techniques, staff training, and life enrichment programs, the approach provides people living with dementia the opportunity to remain creative, actively engaged, and to truly thrive despite the severity of their cognitive challenges.
