People living with memory loss face greater challenges than most of us. Being unable to remember life’s most cherished moments is a difficult path, but not a hopeless one. JEA Senior Living recognizes that these individuals haven’t lost the capacity to experience joy and are able to continue leading meaningful lives.
That’s the basis for our Meaningful Moments program. This unique approach to caring for those with dementia goes beyond merely making these individuals safe and comfortable. It’s a family-centered concept that starts by learning everything there is to know about our residents – their passions, achievements, careers, family, hobbies and interests. This allows our staff to create moments of real meaning that engage our residents emotionally, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
It also helps bond caregivers to the resident, so they are able to see more than their current condition and recognize them for the singular and exceptional person they are. By creating this profound connection, Meaningful Moments establishes a strong foundation of trust and well-being from which residents are able to create new memories and thrive in an environment of exceptional care.
At JEA Senior Living Communities we acknowledge that every individual requires different levels of care at varying points of their lives. We are dedicated to providing specialized care specifically tailored to each resident’s unique needs throughout the aging experience. Our levels of care include independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, as well as our primary focus, Alzheimer’s specialty care centers.
Volunteering is an excellent way to make a positive impact in the lives of those around you. In our senior living communities, we are always happy to invite volunteers to join us in creating Meaningful Moments for our residents.
