Our Memory Care Program is led by Cheryl Mathieu, Ph.D, M.S.W, a certified care manager, certified dementia care provider and dementia specialist. Before joining Vivante on the Coast, Dr. Cheryl was President and Founder of AgingPro Care Management, a geriatric care management and eldercare coaching company. As Program Director, Dr. Cheryl is committed to getting to know each resident and to tailoring our services to meet individual needs.
At The Shores we work closely to understand each resident’s retained abilities, while promoting independence and improving their quality of life. People will forget many things, but they don’t forget how to give love and receive love. At Vivante, our culture of caring for people with dementia honors their life history, supports their strengths and challenges, and maintains their dignity.
To make this possible, our ample, highly-trained staff is dedicated to best practice research and receives specific training in caring for people with dementia. However, our care goes beyond the technical, in that we also share our heart, compassion, and joy to uplift and improve the quality of life for our residents and their families. The high caregiver-to-resident ratio at The Shores allows us to provide the personalized services necessary to create a safe, home-like environment for our residents. Our residents’ personal care services are provided by a combination of 24-hour licensed nurses and specially-trained caregivers.
When you visit The Shores you’ll see a beautiful community designed to accommodate the most stringent of resident wants and needs. But more importantly, you’ll see that our passion for our residents, their families, and our staff is truly what sets us apart.
