At MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care at Mountain Shadows, our Reflections Neighborhood is dedicated to the specialized care of individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. We take a holistic approach to our care, which starts with the utmost respect and compassion for each resident, borne out of a deep understanding of the many pathologies known collectively as dementia, including the most prevalent, Alzheimer’s disease.
Our secure and loving memory neighborhood can provide the care your family member needs at the onset of the disease through to the most advanced stages where the highest level of care is required. The creative side of our care begins with learning about each resident. We interview the family to get a thorough understanding of a person’s history and use that knowledge to aid in their care and to develop a trust between the resident and our staff. To help control adverse behaviors associated with the disease, we use a variety of multi-sensory cues, including aromatherapy, to calm and to awaken memories, to support capabilities and to affirm the individual’s dignity and value.
We know a prognosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia is frightening, which is why we work closely with our families to help them understand what is happening to their loved one. Whatever the extent of the memory loss we know a person’s spirit and essence remains. Our calling—our privilege—at MorningStar is to find ways to connect with and nurture that essence.
Our team at MorningStar at Mountain Shadows works every day to make a difference in the lives of our memory care residents. Please contact us to learn more about our Reflections Neighborhood as well as our full MorningStar at Mountain Shadows’ assisted living community.
