MyTapestry | memory care
Every individual is a unique combination of experiences, beliefs, preferences, routines and rhythms of daily life woven together to create a one-of-a-kind life. At Lutheran Home, we understand that living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of age-related cognitive impairment changes many things; but it doesn’t change the value of every individual.
MyTapestry has been designed to take advantage of the latest discoveries about how to help people with various forms of memory loss thrive and feel secure. On the Lutheran Home campus, a specialized cognitive impairment rehab is also available in a secure environment. Dedicated, trained professionals take the time to learn about each individual resident by talking with family members to gain an understanding of his or her unique history, preferences and rhythms of daily life. This knowledge enables the MyTapestry team to meet each resident where they are, creating a customized daily routine and a living environment that supports his or her highest level of independence.
Residential Healthcare – a secure, advanced memory care neighborhood consisting of all private rooms with private bathing suites. This area is specifically for people with advanced dementia and nursing needs, including dressing, medication administration, shower assistance, incontinence care; as well as skilled nursing services, including wound care, feeding tubes and medically complex needs. Activities are designed around sensory needs including music, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and pet therapy.
