memory-care-caregiverOur Sherwood memory care services are personalized to each resident and the journey starts with our staff learning the life story of each memory care resident. We want to understand who your loved one is, what he or she enjoys, what drives them. We know that every resident is unique and their life story will drive their care plan. From there, we can develop a memory care plan using our innovative memory care program, Opal. Opal is a holistic approach to care that revolves around seven pillars of wellness, ensuring our residents with Alzheimer’s and related forms of dementia, have meaningful and purposeful lives.

An Opal Memory Care Community: 7 Pillars to Wellness

The Ackerly at Sherwood is backed by Leisure Care, a senior living company with nearly five decades of experience in care. Leisure Care’s signature memory care program is called Opal, and is structured around 7 Pillars of Wellness that create a holistic, person-centered memory care community.

Our signature PrimeFit program focuses on the unique physical abilities of each resident in both group and private sessions. We take into consideration the preferences and life story of our residents to create active moments throughout the day.

From scenic drives and themed dinners to holiday events and excursions, we ensure our residents feel included in society and maintain important social connections.

By providing a range of activities like picnics in the park, nature preserves, or live music at the community, our residents have the opportunity to experience the very things that have had importance to them their entire lives while also cultivating new experiences and interests.

Because spirituality means different things to different people, we draw from the life story of our residents to provide daily opportunities to practice meaningful spirituality in ways that are important to each resident.

Activities that elicit expression and provide sensory stimulation, like drawing, clay sculpting, or flower arranging are just a few of the ways residents can express themselves creatively each and every day.

Our goal is to offer daily opportunities for residents to complete tasks with a purpose. We find that tasks, like watering plants or helping the staff, become quite meaningful for residents.

We know that individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia often experience and express themselves through the five senses. The Opal program provides daily opportunities for our residents to positively interact in our community through what they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.
