When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s, families may experience stress or become overwhelmed when trying to find and provide the very best care for them. But, thanks to Belleview Heights, the search is over. The Aurora, Colorado Assisted Living and Memory Care facility offers Person-centered care and programming to support residents while providing their families with unmatched peace of mind.
Belleview Heights’ Alzheimer’s, Memory Care, and Transitional Care programs are designed to nurture the physical, social, spiritual, cognitive, and emotional needs of all residents. The community’s programming is built on the research-backed six “Sunshine Pillars of Wellness.” That means each resident can receive not only assistance with the regular activities of daily life, but also support in the following areas: physical engagement, social connections, spiritual support, intellectual discovery, sensory stimulation, and emotional expression.
The resident can also participate in a full calendar of social, physical, and mental activities. A certified Life Enrichment Director leads the community in engaging daily activities, weekly on-site social events, and fun cultural excursions as part of a researched-backed health and wellness program. Residents can enjoy programs such as music therapy, aromatherapy, validation techniques, health and wellness activities, and life skills stations.
Everything is designed to support memory care residents, even down to the dining program. The daily menu incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which fosters brain health. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices. The MIND diet, in conjunction with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to help hold off memory issues for as long as possible.
At Belleview Heights, your loved one will never be alone. The community’s staff includes an experienced Executive Director, a licensed Director of Nursing, a licensed Memory Care Director, and a certified Life Enrichment Director. Professional staff are available 24/7 to assist residents.
And everything from the community’s grounds to the residents’ apartments are designed with residents’ safety and comfort in mind. Belleview Heights, seniors’ living spaces are specifically designed to alleviate these concerns.
