Residents at Carlton Senior Living Poets Corner are able to enjoy LIFE – Letting Individuality Freely Exist – our person-centered approach to care. Staff have concentrated, specialized training that enable them to join residents on their journeys; honoring the spirit of the residents whose lives have been changed by dementia, while celebrating the person who still is.
The LIFE caregiving philosophy values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints and honors the connection among us all. It acknowledges that all human life is grounded in relationships. It provides residents with dementia a rewarding and meaningful social environment which both compensates for their impairment and promotes retention of daily living skills. The goal at Carlton Senior Living Poets Corner is to respond with appropriate care in a gentle, family-like environment.
The LIFE program utilizes best practices in dementia care. Staff understands the unique behaviors that frequently accompany memory loss. They use gentle re-direction as well as touch and reassuring smiles to build trusting relationships. The LIFE program also makes best use of sensory integration by featuring elements such as an individualized music therapy system, waterfall fountains, fireplaces, aromatherapy, and wind chimes. Other therapeutic tools, which are a part of daily life at Poet’s Corner, include pet visits, art, brain fitness, and reminiscence.
