Supportive Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care in Lewes, Delaware
With a philosophy to provide compassionate memory care and support, the memory care community at The Moorings at Lewes was designed to meet the unique needs of individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementia in a pleasant, caring environment. Our specially-trained professional team provides the individualized care residents need to truly thrive.
Residents enjoy a homelike setting in a private or semi-private suite with a living room, kitchen, dining room, and a unique indoor “outdoor” porch. All resident suites include a private half bath. Families are encouraged to personalize their loved one’s space and bring familiar furniture, photos and other accessories to make their surroundings recognizable and comfortable.
A Safe Environment with a Variety of Memory Care Activities
A gentle touch. A soft smile. Meaningful eye contact and a soothing tone of voice. The caring team of professionals in our memory care neighborhood understands the unique needs of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and we take the time to get to know each of our residents. Our full-time staff developer provides special one-on-one training with the team, ensuring the personalized care each individual needs.
The memory care community also features a secure environment to guarantee resident safety. An attractive privacy fence with a locked gate surrounds the outside patio and courtyard, while the circular path leads residents directly back into the building. If a resident enters the courtyard area, a door alarm alerts the team immediately.
Memory care residents enjoy access to all the unique amenities offered at our continuing care retirement community. In addition to the outside patio and courtyard, family or staff members may accompany residents along the walking trails, view the butterfly gardens or relax in the onsite library. It is our belief that involvement in activities outside the memory care neighborhood allows for others to have a deeper understanding and acceptance of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and to see the delight and comfort that is afforded to enrich our residents’ lives.
We are also a proud partner with the Delaware Music and Memory program, a unique offering that utilizes the power of music to enrich the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia. Each resident receives an iPod downloaded with their favorite music playlists, and the team has seen extraordinary results as the individuals listen to tunes from their past. Residents who may no longer be able to communicate can often recall the words to a favorite song, allowing them to become socially engaged in their surroundings once again. Music also has a calming effect, reducing stress and agitation while strengthening emotional ties with loved ones.
