Memory Care in Antioch, CA
Raise your expectations for exceptional Memory Care at The Commons at Dallas Ranch. Dedicated to serving those who live with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other forms of memory loss, our Connections for Living community provides specialized Memory Care in Antioch, CA. We named our program Connections for Living because it is our belief that human connection is an incredible force in health and healing. Our care professionals work hard to develop meaningful relationships with residents as well as their loved ones to create a support network that promotes the health and wellness of every resident.
Each new resident undergoes an intake interview with our director of health services. We talk to both the resident and their loved ones to learn not only about health concerns but stories, interests, and background information as well. From there, we create a highly specific care plan that addresses various aspects of healthy living. Because we get to know our residents on a personal level, our care team is better able to notice any health or behavioral changes. That way, we can address any health concerns as they arise and move forward in providing the care that best supports the individual.
As experts in senior care, we understand that memory loss has far-reaching effects for the whole family. In addition to helping with activities of daily care, we offer our TLC program which stands for Teaching, Learning, and Connecting. The MBKonnection calendar of events offers myriad ways for emotional, physical, and social engagement. We also host family nights and volunteer opportunities to encourage family members and loved ones to get involved in the healing journey. With this approach, family members can enjoy spending time together and move away from a caretaking relationship. We believe that our approach can help residents not only reconnect with past memories but learn to create new memories as well.
Our Care Philosophy
Each MBK Senior Living community is committed to both person-centered and family-centered care. Because memory loss can affect the health and wellness of the whole family, we work hard to promote human connection at The Commons at Dallas Ranch. We invite family and loved ones to take part in the community. By staying connected to the person living with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, or dementia, loved ones can help the resident be more open to engaging with the present. To help us achieve this, we focus on these four cornerstones:
- Physical Wellness – The Connections for Living resident will have the best possible physical wellness while in our care.
- Environment – The Connections for Living resident is provided with a safe, healthy environment that is stimulating.
- Enrichment – The Connections for Living resident has meaningful activities that are individualized to draw on both past and current interests and skills.
