Our incredibly creative Rose Lane associates develop new programs regularly. We also look outside our company for innovative programs and adapt them for the assisted living environment. Music appreciation, guest musical entertainers, watercolor painting, and nature photography comprise a sample of our programs.
Alzheimer’s and Memory Care
A supportive, home-like atmosphere where physical and emotional needs are recognized and met.
At our Rose Lane memory care centers we have worked intensely to create a structured environment with enhanced safety and care options for our residents. From accommodating dietary requirements, to creating specialized programming, to monitoring medications and helping with personal hygiene, care is provided in a way that allows residents to maintain their dignity and safeguard their independence.
The staff at our memory support communities understands the challenges that accompany Alzheimer’s disease, both for residents and their families. To meet those challenges we’ve developed service offerings that go far beyond care. By offering Alzheimer’s support groups and other programs that help residents and their families confront difficulties ahead, we’ve become an important resource that Delaware residents have come to count on.
Memory Care at State Street Assisted Living: Making the Most of Each Day
For residents suffering from memory issues, we offer a therapeutic program of special events, social interaction, recreation, household tasks and everyday living activities. These programs instill a sense of achievement and normalcy for those requiring Alzheimer’s and memory care.
Researchers now say that regular exercise is associated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and that it has a positive cognitive effect for those who are already exhibiting signs and symptoms associated with the disease. Exercise is a central component to our programs and varies from aerobic activity to endurance and strength building.
Research has shown that people with regular social ties are significantly less likely to demonstrate cognitive decline when compared to those who are lonely or isolated. Residents involved in discussion groups, environmental awareness, happy hour, board games, or a game of trivia will enjoy the company of their peers.
Opportunities for spiritual growth through devotions, religious services, scripture studies and singing hymnal are key pieces of our programming in Rose Lane.
In keeping with the latest research on environmental design for those with memory loss, Rose Lane neighborhoods promote resident independence, well-being and functioning at their highest level. Unobtrusive security systems, natural sunlight, contrasting color schemes, outdoor walking gardens, and smaller scale design are some of the features or our community.
Residents will regain independence and enhance their sense of purpose through accomplishing daily tasks such as washing and drying dishes, dusting, making beds, folding laundry, gardening and enjoying crafts and cooking.
