Betty’s Garden is an ideal caregiving alternative for the time when home care 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 residents 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 resident. It fosters daily interaction with residents 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 home’s daily routine, with the opportunity to individualize activities based on each resident’s uniqueness and the distinctive atmosphere of each home. 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 residents, families, and caregivers
