Creating Moments of Meaning and Joy
Essence Memory Care's philosophy is based on the belief that a person is not their illness; rather the condition is only one aspect of their current status. At Essence, our focus is on the strengths of the person living with dementia rather than on what abilities have been diminished or lost. It is our responsibility to step inside their world when communicating and interacting with a person living with dementia.
Essence Memory Care is based on these core principles:
Every Person has Value and Worth.
Every Person is Deserving of Dignity & Respect.
Every Individual is Unique in Their Life Experience.
Every Person has Strengths & Deserves Opportunities to Contribute
Relationships are essential to the well-being of a person living with dementia. At Essence we have created a culture that nurtures relationships based on respect, trust, shared experiences, mutual enjoyment, and community.
It is important to the quality of life for persons living with dementia that they continue to experience enriching, meaningful and failure-free activities. By providing meaningful activities and opportunities for residents to contribute, we affirm each individual's sense of purpose every day.
With just 6 beds and a dedicated Care Partner for every 3 residents, Essence Memory Care's unique home environment promotes safety and comfort for our residents living with dementia.
