Memory Care at Lafayette
Salize, our Memory Care program at Augusta Pines, is second to none. Derived from the Italian word that means “willow tree” due to its ability to adapt and thrive in the harshest conditions, Salize is the ultimate program specially designed for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Based on National Institutes of Health research that reinforces the potential of reducing symptoms of dementia without the use of pharmaceuticals. The Salize atmosphere is conducive to relaxation, peace, and serenity. Good design can help make it easier for residents to perform daily tasks, with its use of colors, lighting, handrails, and assistive technology. In addition, the design is used to ensure the safety of our residents while helping those with dementia deal with the stressors of confusion, anxiety, and cognitive issues. Common areas are created with open spaces, an abundance of natural lighting, and easy-to-see corridors and walkways. Even our harmonious courtyards and outdoor garden are designed to keep our residents safe and protected.
