Our Approach to Alzheimer's and Dementia Care

It is the philosophy of the Jud C. Hickey Center to offer activity without the stress of the finished product. The person with memory loss may not remember the activity, but will remember the enjoyment of the activity experience.

Our activities were developed to cover the following areas: physical, cognitive, social, spiritual and therapeutic.

All activities have a specific purpose. The level of each activity is designed to meet the current level of functioning of each client to ensure that everyone has a quality day.

Our approach to people with Alzheimer's disease/dementia offers a variety of activities, which should accomplish these goals:

  • Enhance the quality of life
  • Maintain physical well-being
  • Encourage socialization
  • Encourage expression of feelings
  • Maintain connection with the outside world
  • Bring some fun into their day
  • Encourage use of remaining abilities
  • Encourage independence and promote self-esteem
  • Provide intellectual stimulation
