The MemoryCare Corporation And Terra Vista of Oakbrook Terrace Are Revolutionizing Care Techniques

Oakbrook Terrace, IL – May 29, 2018 /MarketersMedia/

Terra Vista is delighted to announce its partnership with the MemoryCare Corporation to offer a variety of unique cognitive programs for people with dementia, aimed at increasing socialization and participation in meaningful activities. These innovative cognitive retraining programs will be designed to meet the needs of individuals in all stages of dementia and will be offered not only to Terra Vista residents but also to individuals living in the outside community who are coping with a dementia diagnosis. This strategic partnership plays a vital role in Terra Vista’s strides towards becoming a cognitive resource center for families and healthcare professionals throughout the western Chicago suburbs.

MemoryCare is a therapy company specializing in person-centered, evidence-based dementia interventions. The organization, led by president and speech-language pathologist Becky Khayum, collaborates with six Chicago-area memory clinics to provide individualized therapy and ongoing support for families living with dementia. Khayum also serves as adjunct faculty at the Northwestern Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center and collaborates on research initiatives in the area of person-centered interventions and technological innovation for people with dementia. Khayum states:

“MemoryCare is thrilled to be a part of the Terra Vista community. The Terra Vista team has demonstrated passion and an unwavering resolve to become a leader in the person-centered dementia care movement, while creatively interweaving technology into many of its programs. MemoryCare is excited to work collaboratively with Terra Vista to continue the mission of increasing life participation and engagement for people with dementia.”

MemoryCare Corporation and Terra Vista have partnered to offer Medicare-reimbursable therapy services, support groups, and activity groups on a weekly basis under the shared vision of integrating the latest research in behavioral interventions with the innovative use of technology. These programs will build upon Terra Vista’s creative technological foundation, such as the ” Stay Connected App,” which allows family members to stay directly involved with their loved one’s daily activities from hundreds of miles away. MemoryCare’s MIND (Meaningful, Individualized, Non-pharmacological approach for Dementia) Therapy Program, unique to Terra Vista, incorporates the latest research in cognitive-communication interventions into its treatment programs. For example, technology is used to create personalized memory and communication aids that allow individuals with dementia to more easily communicate with those around them, which can also help reduce repetitive questions. The MIND program also emphasizes modifying the environment and enhancing the ability to engage in previously enjoyed activities through the use of visual supports and Montessori approaches. Technology is harnessed to increase social engagement experiences, like streaming personalized photo albums narrated by family members for Terra Vista residents on smart tablets.

It’s both partners’ belief that participation in meaningful everyday tasks (chores, personal hygiene, games, etc.) promotes safety, positive interactions, improved communication, and independence in daily life. Even the simplest of tools, like electronic memory books and communication wallets, can dramatically increase a person’s feelings of self-worth. The key is not attempting to change the person, but rather changing the environment around them.
