Engaging the senses
Our dementia teams provide dementia-specific models of care that engage the senses and enrich daily life. We use innovative and integrative therapies like music, aromatherapy, massage, and pet therapy—real live pet teams as well as robotic dogs and cats. These techniques can spark joy or bring patients a calming sense of peace.
QUIET MOMENTS PROGRAM
Every dementia patient is unique and finding out what will most enrich each individual—is what our Quiet Moments program is all about. Our goal is to find the key that will unlock someone’s mind and heart—and usher in a little warmth, light and happiness.
