Katy’s Cottage Memory Care is an Assisted Living community for individuals who present symptoms of memory loss and dementia. The foundation of our care philosophy places an emphasis on independence, dignity, and enhancing each resident’s quality of life. We believe that people with memory impairments often feel more comfortable and have a better sense of well-being in an environment of simplicity, and a structured routine with choice.
Daily meaningful engagement activities are specifically identified to nurture the spirit of Katy’s Cottage residents by providing life skills which are familiar tasks that residents enjoyed doing in the past that still bring them a sense of purpose in the present. These experiences, which might range from walking, food prep, folding, sorting, and gardening, greeting or reading to others, give residents a sense of accomplishment.
Katy’s Cottage’s – Reach for the Sky Program
We understand that people with cognitive challenges develop gaps in their abilities. Our Reach for the Sky Programming utilizes the expertise of Occupational Therapists to understand the abilities that each resident has retained. Safety, function, and personal satisfaction are the key considerations of our Reach for the Sky program.
The Allen’s Model used in Reach for the Sky comprises the basis of this training with the focus upon accurate identification of the cognitive levels of functioning thus allowing appropriate modification of treatment and care approaches. Reach for the Sky is designed to maximize the impact of the staff’s interventions for adults with varying degrees of cognitive impairment.
