MEMORY CARE

Passionate Care, Personalized - Welcome to Memory Care in The Cottage at The Avenues of Fort Bend

At The Avenues of Fort Bend, we believe that the good life for our Alzheimer’s and dementia care residents is found in moments. Moments filled with happiness, kindness, purposefulness, and laughter. The kind of small, pleasurable moments that make life worth living. The ones that are best enjoyed in the present. That’s why we offer a comprehensive, loving, evidence-based approach to memory care in The Cottage - because every moment makes a difference in the quality of life for our residents.

We intentionally keep the number of available rooms in The Cottage low and our staff per resident ratios high so that all of our residents can enjoy warm, attentive, compassionate care in a small, home-like environment. We want our memory care residents to feel like they’re part of a caring, close-knit community. We want them to be reminded every day of two things we feel strongly about: that they’re important and that they matter.

Personalized Memory Care Services

Our loving staff consider caring for our residents in The Cottage their passion. At The Avenues of Fort Bend, we support this passion with required certifications and the best of ongoing training in positive, person-centered dementia care. Also, we maintain higher staff-per-resident ratios to ensure every staff member can truly get to know each resident and the kind of personalized assistance they need.

We love when our staff and residents bond, so we actively encourage meaningful relationships between them. These relationships benefit the resident by allowing their caregivers to be more intuitive and flexible in their care, as well as their loved ones by providing access to detailed information from the caregivers themselves. The Cottage provides a loving atmosphere and a feeling of security that not only allows our residents a measure of independence and encourages engagement, but also provides their loved ones with much-needed peace of mind.

Specialized Memory Care Activities Focused on Quality of Life

Every member of our passionate staff is here to make a difference in the lives of our residents. That’s why all of the memory care activity programming in The Cottage has been specifically developed according to the latest scientific research on both improving quality of life and slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s and dementia in our residents. We seek every day to enrich their lives with sensory engagement, appropriate exercise, and intellectual, vocational, social, spiritual, and stress-reducing activities.

As part of our programming, we engage our residents in a specialized, evidence-based method of teaching and learning. This helps our compassionate staff connect with our memory care residents on their level in a no-judgment zone that emphasizes the respect and value of each resident. Through this method, our residents participate in activities that help with things like rebuilding motor skills and connecting to long-term memory. We also provide opportunities for residents to engage in meaningful, purposeful activities such as cleaning, cooking, or sorting so that they feel happy, hopeful, helpful, and productive.
