At Almost Home we care for those with Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss in a home-like, Secured Environment
The foundation of our program is Safety First. We also embody a powerful philosophy known as Anam Cara, a beautiful understanding of love and friendship in the Celtic tradition. A basis for Anam Cara is the spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding. When you establish such a bond with another person and become open and trusting with them, your souls flow together. When such a bond is nurtured, you have found your Anam Cara, or soul friend. Therefore, we use the Best Friends Approach in our Program of Care.
When it comes to care giving, however, one size does not fit all. Our care program is tailored to meet the specialized needs of all who are afflicted with a dementia including Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, Parkinson’s and Frontal-temporal dementias.
We understand the varying needs that result from a specific disease and how to make life more meaningful and pleasant. Such an approach increases self worth and creates a true failure-free, less threatening world for those with memory loss. We use gentle strategies such as re-direction, coaching, cueing and task breakdown to help residents feel good about themselves and their accomplishments.
Almost Home has developed its own unique programs to meet resident needs. Our approach to resident-centered care helps create satisfying days and meaningful lives for residents, and peace of mind for families.
