Anna's Garden has been divided into two separate communities: Anna's Garden Transitions, our community for active seniors with mild-to-moderately severe memory loss; and Anna's Garden Reflections, our community for moderate-to-severe memory loss and/or arduous physical care needs. By separating residents between two communities by acuity level we have an enhanced ability to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of residents. To help meet these needs, Anna's Garden has developed Four Core Values that set us apart from other communities:
Gentle Care Philosophy - 'Validation Breakthrough' - Anna's Garden is guided by the principles of Validation Therapy which emphasize using empathy to build trust, never forcing seniors to do anything, and interpreting challenging behavior as an underlying need to be discovered and fulfilled. Validation restores dignity to seniors with dementia by accepting them as they are. Struggling to perform basic everyday tasks is a difficult reality for dementia residents and can cause withdrawal. Through acceptance of all behavior, even difficult behavior, care managers can transition quickly to solve problems and focus on assisting residents with everything they need. This gentle environment decreases agitation and promotes peace and tranquility for residents, allowing them the opportunity to be the best they can be.
Commitment to Adequate Food and Fluid Consumption - Dementia may lead to reduced food and fluid intake, due in part to decreased recognition of hunger and thirst. Ensuring adequate food and fluid intake requires a concerted effort. We are committed to meeting these basic needs through systematic monitoring and as a part of the identity of Anna's Garden communities.
Social Engagement and Involvement in Meaningful Activities - Meaningful activities are the foundation of dementia care because they help residents maintain their functional abilities. Anna's Garden communities use every opportunity to engage residents in enjoyment of outdoors, socialization, everyday tasks, exercise programs, and musical interaction. These events and activities are fun for residents, individually paced, and are always delivered with sincere love and compassion. By creating an atmosphere of familiarity and consistency, we keep our residents invested and engaged in the world and people around them.
Commitment to Resident Safety - The Anna's Garden communities offer your loved ones dedicated staffing and locked security. This is an important distinction in today's rapidly changing world of residential care. Many communities are installing wander management technology in their assisted living settings as a means to serve residents with memory loss. These systems alert staff that a resident has eloped from the community and staff must react without error to prevent an accident. The Anna's Garden communities don't attempt to manage elopement -- they prevent it. Both communities are true memory care communities, designed and custom built for memory care and completely secure. Additionally, both Anna's Garden communities have dedicated staff who only cater to residents in that specific community, delivering better service and more value to residents' lives.
