Memory Care: The Arbor
The challenges presented by memory loss can be difficult to navigate, but we’re here to help every step of the way. The Arbor at Dirigo Pines offers an innovative approach to memory care for those with memory impairments, including Alzheimer’s and dementia. The Village Program® offers personalized programming that engages residents in activities that may reflect their former schedules, lifestyles and interests while helping them feel safe and appreciated. Through enriching experiences and by establishing caring personal relationships with our residents, we find great sources of enjoyment and comfort—together.
Our memory care is further enhanced by It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L™), an easy-to-use technology designed specifically for seniors to encourage resident activity without the frustration. Simple computer touch-screens help residents stay engaged and connected, with more than 4,000 programs to choose from that include cognitive and therapy activities, games, spiritual content and family interactions through Skype and sharing slideshows and photo albums.
