Senior Memory Care: Creating Holiday Memories

Our senior memory care facility in Kansas City – Clover Care Home, knows that transitions happen with the holidays, and there are many possibilities for memory making. The beginning of a new year is an opportunity to be intentional in making memories with your senior loved one too. The holidays can bring up great memories for seniors, especially when their loved ones include them with activities that help stimulate memory and make new ones.

Clover Care Home offers premier and specialized senior memory care here in Kansas City. We have embraced a full continuum of care designed specifically for the needs of each resident. Our facility was built specifically to provide a therapeutic environment needed for safe, secure care of individuals with memory care needs. Senior memory care in Kansas City uses reminiscing as therapy for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia by turning daily activities into memorable and meaningful events through the use and stimulation of sensory perception. Studies have shown that sensory therapy can boost mood and reduce agitation. Through sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, looking at pictures, singing a song, cooking together, or talking about an event helps seniors reflect on the past and look forward to the future. Reminiscence therapy is often used for patients with dementia and depression to improve their overall quality of life. Reminiscing with a senior, discussing the highlights of the past year and what they are looking forward to in 2023 is a beneficial tool to be utilized.
 
You’ll want to give the holiday season gatherings special attention if your loved one needs memory care. Seniors need a quiet, designated space where they can rest and relax if they become tired or just need a place to recharge. Large group activities can be overwhelming and confusing, especially with young children who change physically as they age. Utilizing name tags are a great way to help with senior memory care during your family gatherings. Another way to help with senior memory care in Kansas City is to enjoy normal activities, such as cooking in the kitchen or listening to favorite holiday music and movies together. Memories are triggered through the five senses and allowing your senior loved one to help out in any way they can is beneficial to memory care. Choosing some of their favorite songs and movies is also a nice way to connect with your loved one while purposefully helping with their memory.
At Clover Care Home, we embrace everything in the home setting, and we strive to enjoy the time you have given us with your loved one in our senior memory care facility. The holidays can be a busy time but creating purposeful and meaningful activities with your senior family member makes the season special for you and for them. We have a passion for enhancing each and every resident’s quality of life through personal and meaningful interactions. If you are in the Kansas City area and would like more tips on how to help your loved one with senior memory care, contact our administrator today at (913) 991-2605 with any questions you might have.
