Our renowned, non-pharmacological approach focusing on the person,
not the disease.
A mindful approach to
memory care treatment
LCB’s Director of Memory Care and Engagement, Kelly McCarthy, is an acclaimed author and thought leader in the field of non-pharmacological memory care. Her writings form the basis upon which our Reflections Memory Care program was developed. It is a philosophy that promotes dignity and quality of life through compassionate care and a focus on the person, not the disease.
Reflections creates daily opportunities for residents to experience success, joy and connection with other people. This is accomplished through a variety of therapies, including music and art, cooking, cognitive and sensory exercises and a number of other techniques. In doing so, we create life experiences and events rather than merely providing “activities.”
Reflections is distinguished by its Four Pillars of Engagement, which connect with the whole person through Physical, Social, Cognitive, and Emotional experiences. Connecting with people who are living with dementia across these four dimensions has been proven to generate many positive outcomes, including increased overall engagement with life, reduced confusion and a focus on the person’s abilities. A multifaceted approach to interaction can help slow or even reverse the progression of some signs and symptoms of dementia.
Our Certified Dementia Professionals understand the complex needs of your loved one, and provide a range of services in a specialized, secure neighborhood. Residents enjoy a private dining room, sunny sitting areas, an outdoor recreation area and other amenities.
Our memory care program includes personalized assistance and care with activities of daily living, such as:
- Housekeeping & laundry
- Bathing & showering
- Medication management & reminders
- Escort to meals
- Dressing & groom/personal appearance
- Continence care
