Enhanced-Memory Care in Greenville

 

From the moment you walk through our doors, you'll feel right at home with the finest amenities, attentive staff and accessible care. Your loved one will thrive as they are encouraged to be physically active, focus on their own strengths, and celebrate their successes without the confines of a rigid, pre-set schedule. Furthermore, all our residents are welcome to bring furnishings and decorations from home that will nourish their sense of familiarity and security.

Professional Staff

Each member of our staff is fully trained to work with people who are dealing with cognitive impairments. Our gentle encouragement and support will help maximize the wellness of each individual, as we care just as much about our residents as we do for them. We always welcome our resident's families to take part in the process of developing the care plan for their loved ones.

Fun Activities

 

Every person in our care is provided with opportunities to make choices and exert control over their own lives. Our short, voluntary activities are designed to stimulate the senses, help maintain effective motor skills and center on the basic activities of daily living. Often, we will individualize each activity for the resident, drawing on their past interests or former occupation to bring out their skills and ignite their energy.

Behavior Based Ergonomics Therapy

 

Brethren Retirement Community now offers the award winning-BBET program to help improve the lives of those living with dementia, as well as to reduce the stress their disease places on caregivers and their loved ones.  It is available to all our residents in our Enhanced Living and Healthcare Neighborhoods. 

Based on the Science of Ergonomics and Neuroscience this program works to improve the quality of life for every resident and was developed by Dr. Govind Bharwani, a nationally recognized expert in Alzheimer’s and Dementia care.  The BBET program (Behavior Based Ergonomics Therapy) is an innovative approach to engaging residents and managing behaviors.  It was the result of a collaboration with Wright State University and the Alzheimer’s Association and has received six national awards for its significant improvements in reducing behaviors, medications and falls. 

The BBET program offers multiple therapies that help to reduce mental stress, prevent behaviors from escalating and provide mental exercises.  Each resident has a customized plan based on their interests, information their family provides, and their cognitive level.  It is available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our memory care staff receives specialized training to understand resident behaviors, communicate with compassion, and learn ways to engage each resident so they receive the most benefit and enjoyment from the therapy.

We have many success stories from families and staff.  Many families report their visits with their loved ones are more enjoyable, with more meaningful interaction and less behaviors.  After the therapy, residents are calm for hours and often enjoy more restful sleep.  The therapy works—it improves the quality of life for both the resident and their caregivers. 

No other facility in this area offers the BBET program.  We not only offer it, we offer it throughout our facility for residents, staff, and families to enjoy!
