“The heart that truly loves never forgets.” – Proverb
Cognizant of the special needs of those with impaired memories, we developed Harmony Village, a unit designed to provide for the physical, social, cognitive, and emotional needs of our residents. Our goal is to help each resident realize their greatest potential cognitively, physically, psychosocially, and spiritually. To achieve that goal, we provide a caring and secure environment with specialized personal care, spiritual support, and meaningful, success-driven activities.
A specially-trained, experienced, inter-disciplinary health care team creates an individualized plan of care that aims to address the unique needs of each resident. All staff is trained to work with individuals who have Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and some staff have been certified by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP). We offer all staff the opportunity to become Certified Dementia Practitioners™.
Our care teams in Harmony Village offer services in a calm and soothing environment. Residents are able to engage in group activities, one-on-one activities and sensory activities. It’s common to smell the aroma of fresh baked cookies and other familiar scents of home. We encourage each resident to use life skills and each program is adapted to their individual abilities.
At the entryway to each resident’s room is a memory box that contains mementos and items of importance to both the resident and family members. These special boxes help provide a link between the past and the present. All the amenities in Harmony Village are designed to meet each resident at his or her level.
