Our Person-Centered Approach to Memory Support
Judson Smart Living® strives to enhance the lives of each resident through kindness, compassion and a thorough understanding of the challenges memory loss presents.
Judson’s memory support program is accredited by Comfort Matters®, a practice that was developed at the Beatitudes Campus in Arizona, through more than a decade of research around person centered health care practices. It also incorporates the latest science on supporting people who live with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Comfort Matters® offers a holistic and integrated approach to improve quality of care and the quality of life for persons with dementia. The first step in designing a care plan that is unique to each individual is to understand the totality of each person.
These key concepts are at the core of how Judson approaches
Each individual and their needs:
- Incorporates each person’s life story into his or her care plan
- Empowers caregivers to do whatever is needed to make each person comfortable at all times
- Creates a personalized homelike environment
- Anticipates each person’s needs rather than responding primarily to discomfort or behaviors
