Memory Care customized plans to help honor each individual’s wants and needs while also celebrating a well-lived life.
Every life is a story worth being told. The Paddock Ridge approach to memory care for those affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia is to provide personally tailored plans designed to preserve these life stories. By understanding each individual, we address needs on a personal level, and put them at the forefront of every collaborative decision made by our staff, families and the residents themselves. We focus on emotional reassurance, building genuine relationships and honoring individual choice.
Sensory Integration empowers residents who have lost some or all capacity for language to explore visual, aural and tactile stimuli to find their comfort level, and better engage with others and their own inner feelings.
The Sensory room offers multiple stations for sensory stimulus — fiber-optic strands and liquid-filled bubble tubes that emit a rainbow of color that elicit feelings of comfort, a tactile board with different surfaces, music playlists and vibro-acoustic furniture — which are all part of the therapeutic experience.
Social Connection is as basic as our need for food, water and shelter, writes UCLA professor Matthew Lieberman in his first book, “Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect,” published this week by Crown Publishers.
Our seniors are especially vulnerable at this time as they may be isolated in their homes or apartments with little connection to the outside world.
Understanding the basic need for meaningful connection for our residents, Paddock Ridge has implemented a robust, interactive technology connection platform. Our community uses a technology system called iN2L to help provide experiences for our residents to share conversations, interactions, learning and fun with each other, their caregivers, and family members.
iN2L is easy to use and requires no computer experience. Simply touch a picture on the screen to begin enjoying fun activities.
Our residents all have rich life stories to tell, and we view it as an incredible privilege to ensure that their personal narratives are woven into the fabric of each day spent at Paddock Ridge. Whether they come to us from the Florida towns of Huntington, Fellowship or Belleview or from other parts of the country, we look forward to welcoming all to Marion County’s new home for exemplary senior living.
We believe every person has the potential to continue growing in mind, body and spirit, and the right to live life to the fullest regardless of age. This remarkable senior living community combines comfort, luxury, service and security to create the right balance for those in search of quality assisted living and memory care. From the incredible seasonal menus available in our dining rooms to the state-of-the-art therapies found in our Sensory Room, the health and happiness of each resident comes first at the area’s newest and premier senior living community.
