Our goal is to ensure that our residents are leading lives filled with happiness, meaning, and purpose.
The Birches Structured Day Memory Care Programming
The Birches Structured Day includes time for exercise, hobbies, relaxation and reinforces proper hydration. Residents living in our memory care community are also encouraged to engage in stimulating cognitive activities through Montessori practices to build on cognitive function.
The Birches supports all four components of Successful Aging in Assisted Living and Memory Care: Social support, Intellectual challenge, Physical growth, and Spiritual connections.
Below are some examples of our community-wide weekly structured programs to support our members:
- Social: Happy Hour, TimeSlips, Lifebio Writing, Flower Arranging, Movie Night, Calendar Planning Committee, and more!
- Intellectual: Math Bingo, Meaningful Moments, Reading Club, Gourmet Club, Rummikub Club, Game Night, TED Talks, and more!
- Physical: Strength and Balance Class, Movement to Music, Chair Tai Chi, Chair Yoga, Walking Club, Dining Club, and more!
- Spiritual: Meditation, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Music & Memory Program, Sing Fit, Rosary & Communion, Comfort Dogs, 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. And receive notifications on activity attendance. Resident families can receive or share pictures through our HIPAA secured chat, have more meaningful visits based on their loved ones' preferences, and much more!
My mother recently moved here from another facility. The care and concern that has been shown to her and our family has been exceptional. The move in process, even in the midst of Covid, was made easy. I am continually impressed by how kind and caring all the members of the team are. They genuinely seem to like their jobs—which was not the experience that we had previously. The communication with staff is excellent. Any concern or question I have had has been answered quickly and professionally. The nursing care is thorough and the activities planned are innovative and engaging. My mom has been there two months and so far it has been a great move!
