Nestled along the serene shores of Newport Beach, California, The Shores at Vivante Memory Care shines brightly as a sanctuary of excellence for seniors facing the challenges of memory-related conditions. With a heartfelt commitment to enhancing the quality of life for residents, The Shores Memory Care has carved out a dignified place for seniors with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

Family members can find solace in knowing that their loved ones are receiving the specialized care they require while having access to resources and support to help them cope with the emotional and practical challenges of supporting someone with memory impairment.

Vivante Newport Beach supports family relationships by providing various engaging, entertaining activities that seniors can do with family members and loved ones. These activities and therapies are tailored to the senior’s cognition level, personality, and interests to create a meaningful, fortifying experience for all. Family members can also experience the luxurious amenities of The Shores alongside loved ones and enjoy the beautiful coastal location while bonding with family.

In memory care, the foremost emphasis is tailoring each senior’s experience to their needs, preferences, and capabilities. This may include allowing residents to choose their daily activities or food selections. For instance, if a resident with dementia prefers a childhood nickname and enjoys painting, caregivers respectfully address them by that nickname and encourage regular painting sessions as a means of self-expression.

The heart and soul of Vivante Memory Care is its exceptional team of caregivers. These compassionate individuals receive specialized training in dementia care, equipping them with the insight to understand the distinctive needs of each resident. Their expertise empowers them to provide personalized care that honors the dignity and uniqueness of every resident while ensuring their safety and well-being.

The bedrock of memory care is creating a safe and secure environment, preventing wandering and accidents. This entails the installation of handrails, securing cabinets that contain potentially harmful items, and implementing alarm systems.

Ensuring residents receive well-balanced meals and careful monitoring of their fluid intake to maintain physical health and prevent malnutrition and dehydration.

Perhaps one of the most noteworthy features of The Shores Memory Care Newport Beach is our unwavering commitment to culinary excellence. Our vibrant senior community employs talented chefs who lovingly prepare fresh, nourishing, and visually appealing meals. The dining experience is thoughtfully designed to accommodate residents’ individual preferences and dietary requirements.

Administering and closely supervising medications as prescribed by healthcare professionals to manage symptoms and sustain health. An exemplary approach involves maintaining a meticulously detailed medication schedule.

Incorporating activities that stimulate residents’ physical and mental facets, such as daily walks, engaging memory games, and inclusive exercise classes.

The effective use of communication techniques to connect with residents, encourage social interaction, and mitigate feelings of isolation.

Designing a calming and familiar environment characterized by clear signage, contrasting colors, and minimized clutter alleviates confusion and agitation.

Employing sensory activities, such as music therapy, aromatherapy, or art therapy, to engage and provide comfort to individuals grappling with memory loss.

At Vivante Memory Care Newport Beach, engagement programs are thoughtfully crafted to cater to residents’ cognitive and emotional needs. These programs, from art therapy to music therapy and reminiscence therapy, are designed to stimulate cognitive functions and offer emotional support. Residents are also encouraged to participate in physical activities such as yoga and Tai Chi, which provide a sense of purpose and promote physical and mental fitness.

Actively promoting family participation in care planning and activities and involving the local community to counteract social isolation.

Family engagement is at the heart of The Shores Memory Care’s philosophy. We deeply value family members’ role in caring for their loved ones. Families are encouraged to participate in care planning, receive regular updates, and join family support groups. This collaborative approach ensures that families are well-informed, supported, and integral to their loved one’s journey.

Continuous staff training to cultivate specialized skills in dementia care, including an in-depth understanding of the disease’s progression and the implementation of best practices for interaction and support.

These pillars collectively strive to deliver a holistic and person-centered approach to memory care that aims to enrich the quality of life for individuals facing dementia or other memory-related conditions. It is essential to recognize that the specific approach may vary based on the care facility and the unique requirements of each resident.
