Your Memory Care Community in Westminster, CO 

THE SEVEN PILLARS OF WELLNESS FOR MEMORY CARE

Our innovative approach to memory care is called Opal, and is structured around 7 Pillars of Wellness that create a holistic, person-centered dementia care community.

We strongly believe that every person with memory loss can still have a purposeful and meaningful life. We start by learning the life story of each resident. This allows us to understand what drives your loved one, what actions make them feel secure and well-cared for. Our staff members develop lasting and meaningful relationships with residents, knowing their preferences, their motivation, and what they need to thrive on a daily basis. From there, we partner with family and a medical care team, as well as partner providers, to develop a unique and customized care plan centered around seven pillars of wellness, ensuring a holistic approach to memory care. At San Marino, we are committed to caring for seniors along the memory care continuum

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.
