We truly understand how difficult and overwhelming a dementia diagnosis can be for residents and their families, which is why The Woodlake serves as a partner to residents and their families through their care. Our committed and caring team members provide support groups for families, as well as art therapy, horticulture therapy, and music therapy, in addition to our innovative memory care program.
Signature Programming for Dementia Care in Sacramento
As a Leisure Care community, The Woodlake offers Opal, Leisure Care’s signature memory care program. Opal offers residents a flexible schedule that gives residents with dementia comfort, helping to relieve the anxiety and confusion that can come from dementia.
Our schedule includes dementia-friendly meals that are nutritious and easier for people with dementia to feed themselves, even as the disease progresses. We offer dementia-friendly programming with gardening therapy, group exercise, and other programs that are engaging, fun, and purposeful.
We know that although many of our memory care residents share an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, their similarities end there. Our care plans start by understanding the unique life story of each resident. Our caring and compassionate staff works diligently to understand what motivates your loved one, what frustrates them, and what we need to do to help your loved one live their best life.
Personalized Care That Feels Like Home in Sacramento, CA
Residents at The Woodlake receive high-quality memory care through Opal – our innovative approach to memory care, that seeks to meet seven pillars of wellness. These pillars treat the whole individual.
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.
And all of our treatment is provided with a whole lotta heart.
