Hidden Meadows On The Ridge has been a proud and well-respected part of our local community for many years. However, the community is currently learning national accolades, with the recent announcement that the SHINE® Memory Care curriculum has received a prestigious Certificate of Recognition from the Alzheimer’s Association®, a national leader in voluntary health devoted to Alzheimer’s research and care.
This exclusive difference is derived after an extensive review of the SHINE® Memory Care curriculum, which concluded that the program closely follows the most recent best practices and expert thoughts for producing remarkable, person-oriented memory care.
It’s an achievement that is full of meaning in view of the fact that this difference is offered by only 7 other memory care providers in the nation. In addition, for local families, it means that some of the most exceptional memory care available anywhere can be found within our very area.
We made inquiries with the experts of memory care at Hidden Meadows On The Ridge regarding the most practical advice and guidance that they’d offer families who are seeking a personalized memory care approach for their loved ones. Here are the qualities they say to look for:
Compassion & Understanding
A loved one showing symptoms of dementia may also take a toll on families. It may feel daunting and prove to be difficult when it is time to make a decision. It may seem highly ideal to take actions that can help a loved one stay in their current home, but usually this is not the most practical answer. And here’s why: Caregiving requires full-time commitment which family members may not be the best choice. The exhaustion of care providers will emerge which may ultimately cause both seniors and families to suffer.
Having helped many families navigate these challenges, Hidden Meadows On The Ridge says to consider the needs and best interests of both seniors and families and choose a memory care provider that offers proper care and support for both.
There, this is achieved through the combination of person-centered SHINE® Memory Care, and providing active, ongoing support for families as well.
We understand that each senior possesses unique preferences and needs. Hence, personalization is key. It is developed from the basis of the principle of deeper personalization which is emphasized by SHINE® through its six, distinct focus points that help build a holistic approach to memory care that’s exclusive to Hidden Meadows On The Ridge.
- Team member training
- My Story, a biographical journey based on the personal life of the individual
- Immersive dining experiences
- Life enhancement
- Safety-centric neighborhood design
