Give Your Loved One Peace & Serenity

Remembering things naturally becomes harder as we get older. 1 in every 4 people over 65 has cognitive impairment, and 1 in 10 struggles with dementia. If your loved one is dealing with challenges related to memory loss or cognitive decline, The Legacy of Farmington can help.

The Legacy of Farmington offers memory care for seniors with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive challenges. We create a supportive environment for all residents to help them thrive safely.

Could our Memory Care program benefit your loved one? Contact us today and speak with one of our staff to learn more.

What Is Memory Care?

Whenever we receive a new Memory Care resident, we learn everything we can about their abilities and challenges. This information helps us create personalized plans to achieve their wellness goals.

By providing our staff with special training and focusing on each individual’s needs, we provide the support that makes a noticeable difference. Our Memory Care residents have the specific help they need to enjoy life while maintaining their dignity and peace of mind.

What Kind of Care Does Your Loved One Need?

Memory loss and cognitive challenges take many forms, so Memory Care residents can have vastly different needs. Before choosing Memory Care for your loved one, we recommend speaking to one of our registered nurses about what kind of help will benefit them most. The more we know, the more comfortable we can make them.

We can help with many different tasks, depending on the needs of each Memory Care resident. Such tasks include:

  • Taking medication
  • Eating and drinking during meals
  • Maintaining personal hygiene
  • Washing and bathing
  • Getting dressed in the morning or undressed before bed
  • Adjusting to life in our community
  • And more

We provide specialized training for all Memory Care staff through our Enriching Connections program. Enriching Connections teaches our employees how to create wellness plans for those with dementia so they can achieve safe levels of independence in our structured environment.

Enriching Connections is based on 7 key values:

  • Relationships & Community: We create a welcoming environment that supports rewarding social interactions.
  • Commitment: Every member of our Memory Care staff is actively involved in providing high-quality care for our residents.
  • Certification & Training for Staff: We ensure all Memory Care staff members are certified by the Alzheimer’s Association and provide additional memory care training.
  • Services: Our nursing team works closely with residents and their families to devise effective wellness plans for every individual.
  • Meaningful Life & Engagement: We use our Wellness Wheel values to improve life for residents.
  • Environmental: We ensure that residents with physical and cognitive needs of all kinds can access our facilities easily and enjoy them safely.
  • Accountability: We continue to evolve our care and services to reflect the priorities of residents and their families.
  • They struggle to live independently because of dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other cognitive challenges.
  • They are at risk of accidents or injuries due to dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other cognitive challenges.
  • They can no longer receive the support they need from their current caregivers.
  • They can no longer remember or fulfill their responsibilities to other people in their lives.
  • They could see their health and wellbeing improve from living in a structured community.

Art as Therapy with Ganther. Residents picked their own colors and put it on the canvas then placed them in a zip lock baggie with peanut butter on it so Ganther could lick the peanut butter up and help them make their paintings! 🧑‍🎨 🐶

These are one of many activities Ganther can do with residents as part of our Animal Intervention programs. All dogs can provide therapeutic benefits to anyone. The mere act of petting a dog automatically triggers relaxation, a reduction of anxiety levels, and an improvement of ones mood because it promotes the release of serotonin, prolactin, and oxytocin (the feel-good hormones). Dogs in general are amazing companions to have and can reduce loneliness. Research shows that dogs in a clinical setting can help improve ones communication and social skills. Ganther does just this at the Legacy! Research has also shown that dogs can help with recalling memory. While working with residents who may have dementia or Alzheimer’s, they may not always remember the names of the staff, but they will remember Ganthers name! This in itself shows a bond with a dog is very different than one with humans.
