- A team of trained professionals follows a Habilitation Therapy Model, ensuring residents experience a carefully supervised, fulfilling and active lifestyle aimed to stimulate memory and independence.
What is the Habilitation Therapy Model?
The Habilitation Therapy model is a comprehensive approach to caring for people with dementia by focusing on a person’s remaining abilities. Our life enrichment and nursing staff engage the resident’s capabilities, independence and morale to produce a consistent state of psychological well-being.
This differs from Rehabilitation Therapy which is designed to return a resident to their previous, higher levels of functioning. Habilitation focuses on optimizing and extending what is possible in the now, allowing for family and friends to enjoy their time together that can produce a more uplifting experience for all involved.
