CALM™ is a unique approach to treating many of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Through regular aromatherapy massage sessions and specialty designed sensory stimulation activities, the CALM™ program helps restore serenity and recall memories.
Dealing with the effects of memory loss can be almost as troubling and frustrating for loved ones and caretakers as it is for the person afflicted.
Now there is a therapeutic approach that helps create calm and peace in what can be an agitated and chaotic atmosphere. This program treats the whole person, without over medication, and can help relax the patient, which in turn reduces anxiety and tension for everyone. At Villages of Lake Highlands, your loved one will have the opportunity to enjoy the many benefits of this new program designed to help create regular moments of tranquility and serenity every day.
We understand that memory loss can be frightening and confusing, but it doesn’t have to mean a subsequent sacrifice of independence or dignity. Utilizing individualized care strategies, the Villages offers the nurturing support of a professional, hands-on staff and an exclusive, sensory-based CALM™ program to stimulate recall and provide a sense of connectedness. Using proven techniques based on aromatherapy massage and sensory stimulation, the CALM™ program is linked with reducing agitation and stimulating memory recall. Our professional and caring staff makes it their mission to nurture and care for each and every patient in ways that maintain their individuality and preserve those memories still closest to their hearts.
Our exclusive memory support program fosters comfort and quality of life. Along with tenderness, compassion and 24-hour professional oversight, we offer encouragement and stimulation that soothes the senses and enhances care.
Life at the Villages is about re-discovering those familiar and life enhancing activities that were once enjoyed such as baking, gardening, music and reminiscing. Our caring staff provides individual attention to meet the unique needs, preferences and abilities of each resident.
