Find An Memory Care Community

Memory Care Activities

We know how difficult it can be for adults with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or dementia to feel empowered and successful. It’s an issue families struggle with every day when taking care of their loved one. No matter how advanced your loved one’s memory impairment is, we’ll make sure they have access to programs and experiences designed to work with their abilities so they can live meaningful and purposeful days—and feel good about it. 

We call this approach, Live Now, Live Engaged. 

Using research-based programming, we help our residents engage in physical, social, intellectual, emotional, purposeful and spiritual wellness. Our programs are designed to promote brain health, sustain cognitive abilities and to enhance well-being in persons with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or dementia. You’ll find that our memory loss programs incorporate the following:

• Cognitive and mental health exercises 
• Opportunities to interact with peers 
• Opportunities to learn memory enhancement techniques 
• Opportunities for creativity

Meaningful Programs for Memory Impairment
Many Benchmark Senior Living communities for memory care offer the following programs:

Artist in Me: Art therapy helps people with memory impairment communicate and express themselves. The need to create is one that continues even after other abilities are lost. 

Benchmark Connections: Technology provides many avenues for adults with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia to stay connected with loved ones near and far. We help residents connect via Skype, Facebook, and email depending upon the stage of their disease.

Exercise: The physical changes caused by dementia can make exercise a little more challenging. But it’s still an important part of helping seniors with memory impairment live their best quality of life. Your loved one will benefit from daily fitness and wellness programs ranging from chair yoga and gentle stretches to dancing and walking.

Outings: Our group outings enable residents to stay connected to the world around them for as long as possible. We routinely schedule outings to area restaurants, attractions, shopping centers, and local events.

Recreation: The need to connect and engage with others continues even as dementia progresses. We provide residents with opportunities to do so every day. Residents are encouraged to join in on games, musical programs, movie nights, themed events, seasonal parties and more!
