Milestone Memory Care
Memory Care (Alzheimer’s, Dementia)
These services are designed for those residents and tenants who have a primary diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to having staff available to meet the needs of those with memory loss, Milestone offers individually designed daily activities and programming. We take pride in providing the best-trained team. The Community Director and Assistant Director are trained Dementia Care Specialists. Management and staff receive ongoing instruction from the Alzheimer’s Association, as keeping on top of new discoveries, medications, and therapies is vitally important.
Memory impairments, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, requires a specific type of care. Milestone Senior Living campuses create an atmosphere designed to nourish the intellectual, emotional and physical needs of our residents. Our memory care program provides security and guidance for those who need it.
Milestone Memory Care services are highly regarded throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. Our Memory Care program offers you peace of mind through our highly trained, 24-hour on-duty staff, and individualized care plans. Our internal walking routes and alarmed exits, halls with handrails and secured courtyards are just a few examples of our increased safety systems for our memory care residents.
Music and Memories
Milestone Senior Living is certified to offer personalized music that is profoundly linked to emotions. While Alzheimer’s damages the ability to recall facts and details, it does not destroy these lasting connections between a favorite song and memory of an important life event, no matter how long ago.
- Personalized Music provides a means of communication and self-expression when verbal language abilities are diminished. Individuals are calmer and less agitated. Sundowning is often reduced or eliminated.
- Personalized music offers an enjoyable, fulfilling activity.
- Family and staff are able to connect in a more meaningful way with residents around music and memories.
- Personalized music provides a valuable tool to reduce reliance on anti-psycotic, anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications.
