The Path to the Present® – A Resident Directed Program
At Lone Mountain Memory Care in North Scottsdale, our Memory Care program is guided by the principle that no senior is defined by their dementia; that they are still an individual with thoughts, feelings, and interests worthy of exploration and support. We believe that meaningful, engaging visits with caregivers produce positive associations and are an important part of daily living for persons with memory impairment.
Montessori-Inspired Dementia Care
Unlike traditional memory care programs, Montessori-Inspired Dementia Care is focused on non-pharmacological interventions as a basis for treating residents with Alzheimer's and dementia. Instead, we focus on activities-based care, helping individuals relearn what has been lost. Our staff is trained to provide experiences that both improve functioning and generate a positive experience for the individual. We develop an individual care plan for each resident and empower them to choose the activities that most resonate with their interests, for the purpose of giving each resident an opportunity to be a contributing member of their community.
Pioneering Technology and Tools
A unique aspect of our Memory Care community is our relationship with technology. While others may shy away, we are proud to introduce these tools to our residents, helping them learn, grow, and engage with the world around them.
We use HeartLegacy to honor the journey of our residents. This software allows seniors to connect with their loved ones and share videograms via private family networks. HeartLegacy also functions as a daily journal, providing residents with timely updates and reminders.
Because we know the value of regular family interactions, LifeShare is another convenient communication gateway we use to connect residents with their loved ones. Not only are residents able to share messages and updates with their families, but families are also able to view our community’s activity schedules, food menus, pictures, and announcements.
It’s Never 2 Late, or iN2L, is user-friendly, person-centered technology designed to offer your loved one a dignified digital experience. Boasting extra-large touchscreen, everything they need – from cognitive stimulation to family connection and therapy – is right at their fingertips.
SPARK Memories Radio
Promoted by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, SPARK Memories Radio is an innovative approach to music therapy. With the touch of a button, your loved one can be transported back to a time when their favorite songs were at the top of the charts. Not only is it mentally stimulating, it can also help reduce agitation and depression.
