Woodbridge Memory Care community for the Whole Person

Opal is our memory care program, inspired by Teepa Snow’s GEM levels. Opal honors the unique differences in each person, as different as each Opal while providing care for a similar diagnosis. Residents enjoy a gentle schedule that offers predictability and flexibility. Centered around 7 pillars of wellness, Opal ensures each resident is receiving a holistic memory care experience where all needs can be met.

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.
