Signature & Memory Support Programs
To us, helping seniors get more out of life starts with giving them more opportunities to be active, to engage, to learn, and to have fun each day through programs and experiences designed just for them. Explore some of the programs available to our Independent Living and Assisted Living residents.
Great music and dancing — who said exercise can’t be fun? Zumba Gold® is specially designed for the older adult and engages everyone who passes by a session. Participants enjoy the combination of Latin-inspired and international dance rhythms and easy, exhilarating movements.
ShapeMaster® exercise machines provide residents with an easy, comfortable, and safe fitness routine. Residents have shared that after two months of regular use with the ShapeMaster® machines they experiences positive changes, including increased stability and strength. Both they and their children have shared how this has reduced their fears about falls.
BikeAround features an innovative approach to holistic wellness. From the cognitive benefits created by reminiscing to the physical benefits of moving the bike’s pedals, anyone who jumps on this modified version of a stationary bike will have a one-of-a-kind experience.
It is surprising to some as they pass our Lifelong Learning Center to see a resident playing a trivia video game. However, residents appreciate that Dakim® BrainFitness machines provide fun cognitive stimulation through interactive games designed for seniors and find it a very engaging way to exercise their brains.
Memory Support Programs
There might not yet be a medical treatment to ease the suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or forms of dementia, however, we know how to treat the soul. If for only a few minutes at a time, memory care services center on universal soul food: the convergence of music, nostalgia, purpose, and mindfulness. We invite you to experience the magic of Senior Star’s memory support programs.
Music and Memory™
Music wields remarkable power. It has the power to transcend language and — for moments at a time — music can even transcend Alzheimer’s disease. Experience our unique memory care activities and programs.
What is a day without the experience of purpose? We know that living a day filled with meaningful activity is of the utmost importance for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. We’ve designed our memory care programs and community so that residents are encouraged to become involved in doing. Purpose is around every turn.
Set in the safety of an enclosed courtyard, a resident may enjoy the fragrance and taste of food fresh from the grill, the soothing sound of bubbling water, or the pleasure of working in raised flower beds — along with all of the memories these may evoke. Our memory support services aid the mind and body.
Delay the Disease
OhioHealth Delay the Disease™ is an evidenced-based fitness program designed to optimize physical function and help delay the progression of symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. This wellness program is an important part of OhioHealth’s care continuum of neurologists and expert therapists working together to address the impairments associated with Parkinson’s disease.
Snoezelen® Multi-Sensory Environment
Sensory activities provide a level of stimulation, which increases awareness and attention for memory support patients. Matching the sensory demand of the activity with a well-designed environment will help your loved one’s mood, relaxation, and cognition.
