Memory Care

Cadbury Common's Morningside Community is designed for individuals with Alzheimer's, dementia and other memory disorders. The focus of the program is to provide security, structure and personal care services to enhance the quality of life for each resident. The secure Morningside Program includes an inviting sitting room, dining and activities area, country kitchen and outdoor courtyard.

Our Morningside staff is specifically trained to provide care for residents with Alzheimer's or other dementias. Individualized service plans are developed and evolve as the Residents' needs change. An important aspect of our program is the development of a Resident Profile including the resident's past hobbies, career and other special interests.
 
Personal Care
Assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, toileting, ambulation and Self-Administered Medication Management or SAMM) - based on each Resident's individualized service plan.

Life Skills
Meaningful Activities and Programs are designed to maintain independence, self-esteem and participation in typical daily activities of life found in any household. For example, Residents may be involved in folding laundry, setting tables, cooking groups, art making, quilting and gardening. Additionally, live entertainment and scenic drives are an important part of Life for Morningside Residents.

Exercise
Exercise is very important for both mind and spirit. As such, varied, daily, exercise is offered to all of our residents who participate based upon their physical and cognitive ability. Included in the programs are:

  • High stimulation exercise - important to increase brain circulation for activities of the day, including low impact aerobics, repetitions of arm lifts and leg lifts, marching to increase heart rate and overall body stretching.

  • Low stimulation exercise- especially important for residents who are prone to "sun-downing syndrome," a term referring to people who become more confused during late afternoon or evening hours. Low stimulation exercises include walking group, stretching, shoulder/neck massages and socializing events such as happy hour, afternoon tea and talk, and, when seasonally appropriate, enjoying our garden patio.
