Reflect. Rejoice. Renew. The Village Program®
July 6th 2022
Memory Care is a special part of senior living. Many of our senior living communities across the country provide our innovative approach we call The Village Program®.
The Village Program® engages residents through authentic, supportive relationships with caregivers and a thoughtful life enrichment program. Our goal is to offer activities and experiences that are renewing and enriching. Each community develops its own customized program based on the residents, their families, and our associates. In every way, a Village is a caring community that grows and thrives.
The basic pillars of The Village Program® are:
- We Reflect on past accomplishments and who our residents were in the early years.
- We Rejoice in the successes experienced each day.
- We Renew their spirits every day.
The environment we are building involves a sense of community, rooted in a vibrant social life. Each community builds a program that includes both purposeful one-on-one time and structured group activities geared toward individual capabilities and interests. Our associates are encouraged to get to know each Village resident as an individual and learn about their past accomplishments and current interests. Associates work with residents to spend time reflecting on those accomplishments and support them to continue to use their skills and be an active member of their community.
