The Dementia Services Program at Rosener House is dedicated to supporting our participants living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for those living with these conditions by giving them opportunities for engagement, enrichment, and a sense of belonging to a community of wonderful, supportive people.
Dementia Services Program activities are tailored to the needs of participants. Every activity is designed to help them cultivate vibrancy, no matter what their condition. Our staff is always close by to assist and provide hands-on interaction, so that every participant has the best chance for success. We provide a safe environment with a staff to participant ratio of 1 to 4, which enables us to help seniors who struggle in large group settings.
Our small group activities include:
- Adaptive Exercise
- Music Therapy
- Sensory Stimulation
- Creative Arts
- Pet Therapy
We are proud to have a board-certified music therapist on staff to facilitate music therapy, an exciting, innovative approach to Alzheimer’s care.
Music therapy has numerous emotional and behavioral benefits for Alzheimer’s patients and acts as a vehicle for expression and connection with others. It helps facilitate connection with others, can help with emotional regulation, and provides a sense of nurturing. Participants listen to music and enjoy interactive music-making which helps them draw on their in tact abilities. We hold Music Therapy groups regularly at Rosener House.
