Living Options: Memory Care: A New Approach
A New Kind of Care
The Rivers takes a different approach to Memory Care. Inspired by the Montessori Method, we focus on what residents can do, not what they can’t do. Our activities engage the senses to create positive emotions, helping people feel more comfortable and connect to long-term memories. Residents can choose their activities. They have choices—and everyone takes an active part in daily life at The Rivers. The Rivers’ residents do things like help prepare snacks and take part in creating each week’s menus. This involvement reduces anxiety and wandering.
