Using Person-Centered Care and Care-Mapping to Enhance Quality of Life for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Residents
Kansas City, MO: Golden Oaks, a home-based assisted living and respite care home specializing in memory care for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s, announce the roll-out of a scientifically-based program for holistic and integrative memory care to enhance quality of life for residents. The program implements person-centered psycho-social care, which tailors every aspect of daily life to the individualized resident needs, ranging from strengths-based social interaction to personalized nutrition plans. Golden Oaks will be the first memory care center in the Kansas City metro area to provide Care-Mapping, a systematic approach to delivering tailored daily cognitive skills, integrated social activities, and goal tracking. This highly scientific approach has been shown to improve quality of life, and drastically reduce psychological and social impacts of advanced cognitive decline.
There is no cure for dementia and Alzheimer’s, and 1 in 11 Missouri and Kansas citizens are currently living with severe cognitive decline in later life (CDC, 2018). A significant number of clinical trials have shown that with the appropriate care strategies, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients can experience better quality of life outcomes than ever before. Despite the growing science behind best care practices for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia, assisted living facilities are often slow to adopt evidence-based care models shown to drastically improve psychological functioning, promote meaningful social engagement, and enrich daily life. Golden Oaks is committed to integrating the latest scientific evidence in care approaches for residents in order to maximize cognition, to make each day better than the last!
