Activity Programs in Memory Care

The Birches’ Encore neighborhood provides person-centered care that makes life easier and more meaningful for residents with memory loss. In order to promote the well-being of residents living in Encore, The Birches has devised the Encore Structured Day, an organized yet flexible daily routine that fosters social engagement and growth.

The Encore Structured Day includes time for exercise, hobbies, relaxation, and reinforces proper hydration. Residents living in Encore are also encouraged to engage in cognitive activities like the Dakim brain fitness, a researched-based program that slows cognitive decline. Residents can utilize the intuitive, touch-screen Dakim console to engage in a series of fun, stimulating exercises that support their cognitive health.

The Encore Structured Day supports all four components of Successful Aging: Social support, Intellectual challenge, Physical growth, and Spiritual connections. Below are some examples of our weekly structured programs to support their potential:

Social:  Happy Hour, TimeSlips, Lifebio Writing, Flower Arranging, Movie Night, Curious Corner, and more!

Intellectual: Dakim, Math Bingo, Masterpiece Moments, Name That Tune, Reading Club, Gourmet Club, and more!

Physical: Strength and Balance Class, Movement to Music, Personal Training, Chair Yoga, and more!

Spiritual: Meditation, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Music & Memory Program, Sing Fit, Rosary & Communion, Sensory Stimulation, Comfort Dogs, Therapy Chickens, Gardening Club, and more!

At The Birches, we help family members and their loved ones stay connected. Our team bridges connection through innovative technologies using our Family Engagement App. Our family members can view our calendar of events in advance, receive notifications on activity attendance, receive or share pictures through our HIPAA secured chat, have more meaningful visits based on their loved ones preferences, and much more!
