Memory Support at The Kenwood
As you walk through the Memory Support community you’ll understand why we describe it as a place of purpose. So often those with a dementia diagnosis experience life through the very narrow lens that this disease provides. Our view is very different, fully recognizing each person with her unique past experiences, knowledge, and skills that remain.
With lives well-lived, love stories that yearn to be told, and physical capabilities that have not been lost, imagine the joy, purpose, and fulfillment your mom may feel as she takes her basket of laundry to the backyard to hang clothing. Rather than sitting alone in a room watching TV, the simple moments in life can provide purpose and spark a memory. Imagine your dad reliving his youth as he washes the classic car in the carport. The joy in his eyes, the sense of purpose and meaning he has rediscovered — if only for that moment. It is those moments we cherish when caring for those with a dementia diagnosis. It is our approach to caring for and serving the whole person — and their family — in our Memory Support community.
