Embracing Memory Loss Leads to Better Understanding Dementia

Desserts-2654

MorningStar at Englefield Green has a fundamental standard in specialized memory care for seniors struggling with Dementia and memory loss. Treatment is individualized for each of our residents dealing with memory impairment. Under our holistic approach, “Lavender Sky,” we hope to aid in the de-stigmatization of memory loss and Dementia. By accepting the diagnosis and symptoms associated with memory loss, we are able to become more familiar and understanding of our residents.  

Our mantra that is taught under “Lavender Sky” is to “enter, embrace, and explore” the realm of Dementia and other illnesses related to memory loss. It is important to not fall blindsided by the diagnosis. Instead, we encourage and actively teach our memory care providers to willingly enter into the territory of Dementia. 

To better understand memory loss, we must embrace it. With a Dementia diagnosis, how your loved one communicates with you and the world around them will begin to change. Under a “Lavender Sky,” we all should be available to practice stronger empathy and understanding towards the individuals in our care. At MorningStar, we embrace Dementia and other forms of memory loss by customizing and individualizing care for each of our residents in memory care. Needs change on a base-by-base situation and our flexibility and attentiveness allow for comfort and patience during difficult situations. When we better understand our residents, we can better understand the ways in which Dementia and memory loss portrays themselves.

There is no cure for Dementia, but every day we are exploring new ways to combat and handle the diagnosis with care and tenderness that may offer us new breakthroughs in medical understanding of the disease. When we “enter, embrace, and explore” memory loss, we are utilizing an empathetic way to understand our residents and the reality of Dementia. When we show care, attentiveness, and willingness to understand, we can better examine the effects of memory loss on each of our residents.
