Are Ashley Gardens memory care residents grouped by cognitive level?
Each resident’s cognitive level, hobbies, and personal preferences are incorporated into their personal care plan and their one-on-one time with our caregiving and life enrichment teams.
However, Ashley Gardens residents are not grouped by cognitive level when it comes to group social and life enrichment activities. What this means is that our activity calendars are designed to provide a myriad of activities that are enjoyable for residents with a wide range of cognitive levels and physical ability. Your loved one can participate in the activities that he or she enjoys, either independently or with assistance.
It is always our goal to do activities with our memory care residents, not for them, to give them a sense of purpose, enjoyment, and pride.
