THE FOUR PILLARS OF PRIMROSE MEMORY CARE PROGRAM


Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other memory impairing condition is the only common denominator among the residents in our memory care community. While our building is beautifully designed, the most important aspect of our memory care community is the programming that our staff provides each resident. Each resident receives a specific plan of care based on the Four Pillars of Primrose Memory Care Program:

PHILOSOPHY

We believe in a person-centered model of care focused on meeting a person’s psychological needs above and beyond their basic healthcare needs. Psychological needs include love, attachment, comfort, identity, occupation, and inclusion.

PURPOSE

We recognize and celebrate that each person with dementia is unique and tailor our daily interactions to each person’s reality in order to provide fulfillment and self-worth. We view all interactions as opportunities for purposeful engagement.

PROACTIVITY

We believe that the success of an individual is maximized through building relationships with the individual and their families starting with our very first interaction. This allows us to get to know a person – past and present – so our staff can apply the information daily.

PARTNERSHIPS

We are committed to creating success through teamwork with individuals and third party resources. We recognize that caring for loved ones requires partnerships with families, therapists, practitioners and volunteers, just to name a few.
