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 dignity and independence while enhancing each resident’s quality of life. For individuals with dementia or Alzheimer’s, being cared for in a comforting environment with a structured daily routine reduces agitation and anxiety and improves mood.
Daily meaningful engagement activities are customized to nurture one’s spirit through familiar activities and tasks. These tasks, once enjoyed in the past, continue to provide 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.
