Memory Care

What is a Dementia Friendly Environment? Living Nooks!

Based on the latest research in best tools and best practices for dementia care, The Village has created a series of Living Nooks throughout our 2nd floor. The goals of Living Nooks are to create small vignettes that help Memory Care residents spark old memories and to create activities that encourage interest, movement, and interaction.

LIVING NOOKS™ are innovative, interactive, and immersive self-directed activity spaces specifically designed for Memory Care residents at The Village. They help answer the question, "What is a dementia friendly environment?" They are just one of the many innovations we use at The Village to provide you or your loved one with the care they deserve.

Living Nooks, a best practice for dementia care, recreate familiar situations from the past — like gardening, caring for a baby, tending to office tasks, laundry, or maintaining a family kitchen.

We seek to provide comfortable places for our residents to feel relaxed and in control. By participating in various tasks that they may have done throughout their whole life, residents feel productive and worthwhile.
