Senior Memory Care Facility: Summertime Activities

Our senior memory care facility: Clover Care Home, provides many services for your loved one. We know it’s difficult when the time comes to place your loved one into someone else’s care. However, there are some services as part of a standard of care you should look for when making this critical decision. We provide personalized care services to meet the needs of everyone, never losing sight of our commitment to providing the best care that your loved one needs to continue living a dignified and respectful life.

Senior memory care is a type of specialized care designed for elderly individuals who have memory impairments, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. A senior memory care facility offers a secure and supportive environment where residents can receive round-the-clock care from trained staff experienced in working with individuals with memory loss. A senior memory care facility typically includes personalized care plans that cater to each resident’s unique needs and preferences and activities and programs designed to enhance cognitive functioning and promote socialization. A senior memory care facility will also often have special safety features, such as secured entrances and exits, and may offer specialized services, such as medication management and assistance with activities of daily living. The goal of a responsible senior memory care facility is to provide residents with a high level of care and support while also promoting their overall well-being and quality of life.

We encourage our seniors with dementia to experience the fullness of life in the community with dignity, joy, and the highest levels of independence their health will allow.  Being able to walk around and sit in the sunshine is one of the best ways to help increase vitamin D, and a lack of vitamin D has been linked to those with dementia, so they must get all that they can. Summer activities for those in a senior memory care facility can be tailored to their abilities, interests, and cognitive levels. Here are some fun ideas for engaging and enjoyable summer activities you can do with your loved one:

·        Outdoor Picnics
·        Gardening
·        Ice Cream Socials
·        Water-Based Activities
·        Reminiscence Sessions
·        Nature Walks
·        Arts and Crafts
·        Virtual Travel
·        Summer Movie Nights
·        Music Therapy

These are just some of the summer activities that our staff loves to provide to engage with our residents, and all these ideas can be adapted to better suit the needs of the residents and families. Just because your loved one has entered a senior memory care facility does not mean life stops. If you are interested in placing your loved one in our care facility in Kansas City, please contact us, Clover Care Home, to schedule a visit, or feel free to call our administrator at (913) 991-2605 with any questions you have about how we can keep your loved one engaged through summer activities.
