SPARK – Specialized Programming for Alzheimer’s and Related Kare
…putting the “SPARK” back into life.
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can be difficult. We understand the needs of persons suffering from this form of disease. We can help when living at home is no longer possible or when family members and caregivers need a break.
Through support groups, family networking opportunities and a friendly staff, we offer something for both the resident and their loved ones.
Our staff is dedicated to preserving the quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. SPARK, Specialized Programming for Alzheimer’s and Related Kare, is our answer to the growing need for Alzheimer’s care. Our philosophy recognizes the unique needs of persons with dementia who are experiencing memory loss and the impairment of functional abilities and other cognitive skills.
Our staff encourages residents to participate in activities and patterns of daily living that are carefully selected to meet their unique physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Specialists in the areas of architecture and design collaborated to create this safe environment where residents can move about and live in comfortable and secure surroundings.
Our program offers individualized care, planned safe environments and a specially trained staff. Focusing on a restraint free living, the SPARK program promotes dignity and independence.
