September is “National Good Neighbor Month,” and in the spirit of this special time, we would like to take the opportunity to share about a unique part of our senior living community – our Memory Care Neighborhood.
Here at Hudson Grande Senior Living we strive to make our Neighborhood a special place, not just for our residents, but for everyone who comes to visit and join in our daily festivities. We celebrate being good neighbors every day.
We call our Memory Care communities “Neighborhoods” because they are full of families and friends. It’s a place where everyone watches out for one another. From the first day a new resident moves in, the residents roll out the welcome wagon. Our residents are the sweetest. To see them embrace new residents to our neighborhood melts my heart. When a new resident comes to our Neighborhood, we introduce them to everyone and tell them they are a part of our Neighborhood family.
As a large family, some days we all get along and some days we don’t. We have good days and sometimes bad days. But at the end of the day, we make room for everyone to sit together for dinner. I couldn’t ask for a better place to be everyday than my neighborhood.
September is also Alzheimer’s month. There are many ways to support people who are living with dementia. Don’t be afraid to talk with them. Often, talking about your memories will trigger their memories. The person they once were still waits to hear their favorite music or eat their favorite food or snack.
We encourage everyone to be a “good neighbor” and find ways to engage and make a difference in the lives of individuals living with dementia. You don’t need to have a special talent, just a heart for others around you. If you would like more information about volunteering in a Memory Care Neighborhood near you or if you are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia, we would love to help!
