Losing the feeling of being a productive member of the family or of society is common for someone affected by memory loss. Azura Memory Care understands this loss and believes that one of the ways to help our residents RECOVER physically and mentally is by including them in everyday chores around the house. This may include helping with the dishes, vacuuming, peeling vegetables, folding laundry, clipping coupons, dusting tables, etc. All these chores are done under the watchful eye of our caring staff. They know that they will later quietly either finish or redo the task. They also know that the value of giving our residents this opportunity is very important.
To us, these may be pesky task,s but to someone with memory loss we have created a MOSAIC Moment because at that moment their life had purpose and meaning. That is the true intent. We engaged them and met their Core Psychological Needs by boosting their self-esteem and by giving them a way to feel needed and useful. We gave them a reason to smile.
