Reflections Memory Care
A mindful and non-pharmacological approach to promoting dignity and quality of life for older adults with memory challenges, through compassionate care and a focus on the person, not the disease.
Our Reflections Memory Care program utilizes a social model of supportive living. Through varied and carefully planned programs, we support and enrich the experiences that our residents have on a daily basis. We encourage them to be active members of society, to be independent, to express themselves through therapeutic engagement, and to flourish. We create life experiences and events, not activities.
Reflections is distinguished by its Four Pillars of Engagement, which connect with the whole person through Physical, Social, Cognitive, and Emotional experiences. Connecting with people who are living with dementia across these four dimensions has been proven to generate many positive outcomes, including increased overall engagement with life, reduced confusion, and a focus on the person’s abilities. A multifaceted approach to interaction can help slow or even reverse the progression of some signs and symptoms of dementia.
Our memory care program is led by Certified Dementia Practitioners, and is based on our wellness model in collaboration with Harvard Medical School, McLean Hospital, and Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
