The Social Model of Dementia Care

On a typical day inside ASC’s specialized memory care neighborhoods, you’ll find an active and welcoming environment where our residents are encouraged and supported throughout their day. These specially dedicated neighborhoods within our communities serve residents with Alzheimer’s and like forms of dementia, not only by providing support for their daily needs but also by enhancing our residents’ daily lives and promoting their independence.

Our specialized support staff is trained to provide person-centered care, emphasizing the whole person, physical, mental, and emotional, and by fostering meaningful relationships that support our resident’s dignity and independence. ASC’s CARE Companions program promotes the development of meaningful friendships with team members, sharing life stories and connecting on a personal level each day. These friendships enable our residents to enjoy a higher quality of life by creating a sense comfort, security, and belonging.

ASC’s memory care neighborhoods provide a secure, comfortable, and homey environment with attention to our residents’ preferences regarding music, activities, and entertainment. Music of their youth is often playing, and our hallways display interactive art designed to stimulate interest. A resident who enjoys cooking might join a staff member to bake cookies, someone who loves gardening might assist a team member, tending the raised beds in our secured memory care courtyard. The planned activities led by our memory care staff are designed to promote our residents’ independence and engage their remaining skills and abilities while providing social stimulation and enjoyment.

ASC’s commitment to person-centered care is founded on our dedication to each aspect of our residents physical, mental, and emotional lives. Our goal is to provide a safe, welcoming, and stimulating environment where our residents feel at home. We proudly invite you to learn more about the respect, warmth and connection within our memory care neighborhoods by visiting ASCCare.com.
