People with dementia find it difficult to relate their identity due to memory loss, such as who they are and the things and people that are most important to them. Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso is a senior living community that understands your concerns. We open our doors and welcome your loved ones who may require assistance and extra attention.
About Our My Story Book Program
In Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso, we understand the significance of preserving your loved ones’ memories. This is why we created My Story Book under the SHINE® Memory Care program as a documenting tool. The greatest part about this exercise is that everyone who is important in your loved ones’ life, including caregivers and you, collaborate and work together to assist them to remember. We may reconstruct their history by stitching together photographs and anecdotes that trigger their most cherished recollections.
Benefits of Having My Story Book Program in Your Senior Living Community
For people suffering from dementia, remembering the past is difficult. As a result, communities like ours focus on assisting patients in regaining their memories. This is exactly what My Story Book does. As a consequence, people might rediscover their sense of themselves. Here are some more advantages of participating in this activity:
- Creating and sharing My Story Book with others, whether with you or our team members, will develop fresh affection or new connections.
- Browsing through the book of souvenirs might bring back a flood of long-forgotten memories, and as reclaiming your loved ones’ identities is our top objective, this is a step in the right direction.
- Your loved ones may have spent a lot of time with family and friends in their lifetime. Reliving the life they have had may jog recollections and, as a result, initiate a discussion you’d like to have with them. My Story Book provides a chance for nonverbal clues for loved ones who have difficulties communicating verbally. You could see them laughing or sighing. You are made aware that they recall as a result of this.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Loved ones who are becoming older are more likely to have chronic medical problems like Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease. When this occurs, and as they age, they become less capable of caring for themselves. This is especially true for persons suffering from dementia. If you notice your loved ones’ medical conditions deteriorating, it may be time to relocate them to a senior living community that can better serve their needs.
