MorningStar Memory Care at Bear Creek is devoted to the individualized care of those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases. Regardless of whether your loved one is at the onset of the disease or well into the more advanced stages, we can care for them.
MorningStar’s approach to dementia care starts with the utmost professionalism and respect for the individual and works toward replacing medications with alternative natural therapies including patience, attention and love whenever possible. Our specially-trained care managers use gentle, resident-directed methods to calm and awaken memories and to support each resident’s capabilities. Common techniques include using multi-sensory cues such as aromatherapy as well as a range of meaningful and purposeful activities that incorporate art, music, and life skills.
Our personalized approach to memory care also means we make a point to get to know each resident including their background, vocation, talents and preferences. Once we feel we truly know the “person”, we can then effectively setup a daily routine that is designed around stimulating or calming the resident. In addition it allows us to quickly adjust their routine in response to a particular mood or situation. At MorningStar we also understand that physical exercise is important to an individual’s overall well-being so every day residents have the opportunity to strengthen and stretch their bodies.
