Loving Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia-related Diseases
The Reflections Neighborhood at MorningStar Senior Living of Sparks is devoted to the care of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Our specially trained staff provides personalized care for residents using progressive methods to palliate symptoms and revive joy. Furthermore, our community is equipped to care for individuals in the onset of the disease right through to the most advanced stages.
We take a gentle, resident-directed approach to calm and awaken memories as well as to support capabilities. Along with using multi-sensory cues, including aromatherapy, our residents are provided with recreational and meaningful activities including music, life skills, art, entertainers and exercises.
The goal of MorningStar’s methods is to affirm dignity and value of each resident and to support choice and independence as much as possible. By interviewing family members, we gather together a complete history of a resident’s preferences, abilities and idiosyncrasies and use that information to create trust between staff and residents.
One of our unique approaches to memory care includes life skill stations where we incorporate a variety of props that may have played a role in a person’s background to help awaken dormant memories. When individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia diseases harken back to their past, they have the opportunity to take joy in the present and feel calm and connected.
In addition our warm and loving memory care community offers nutritious meals prepared by our Executive Chef, daily health monitoring and an exterior courtyard for the exclusive use of our special residents. Visit our website to learn more.
MorningStar of Sparks’ unique mission statement “to honor, to serve, to invest” sets us apart from other senior communities. Committed to creating a true home for residents within a gorgeous setting, our foundation is built on honoring God, valuing our seniors and hiring staff with a felt calling to serve.
