Betty’s Garden is an ideal care giving alternative for the time when home is no longer the optimal environment for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. Our Coming Home program was designed exclusively for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and has proven a welcome answer for tenants and families alike.
Coming Home is a comprehensive enrichment program for Betty’s Garden, which is designed to ensure an all-encompassing, fulfilling experience for every tenant. It fosters daily interaction with tenants of Betty’s Garden in these areas: Creative / expressive, physical, social, cognitive, and emotional / spiritual. Coming Home utilizes a hands-on approach to daily engagement where the act of doing enforces memory and physical health, sparks creativity and expression, promotes social interaction, and ensures overall well-being. The Coming Home schedule provides structure and depth to the community’s daily routine, with the opportunity to individualize activities based on each tenant’s uniqueness and the distinctive atmosphere of each community. Coming Home provides a sense of consistency and balance, uses cues to establish different times of day, and rotates busy times with periods of rest. Set routines help create an almost automatic motion, and reduce stress and worry for tenants, families, and caregivers.
