Cognitively Impaired residents live in a secure community and benefit from theraputic modalities, which include:
Individual Sensory Stimulation utilizes a mobile “Snoozelen Sensory Cart” that enables the recreation therapist to stimulate the environment in the individual resident’s room, when the ability to leave the room becomes compromised.
Re-motivation Therapy provides reminiscence activities that stimulate the resident’s memories of past pleasurable life experiences, addressing depression and anxiety symptoms.
Reality Therapy reinforces daily orientation in the areas of time, date, weather, current events, and more.
Our nursing and therapeutic recreational team work together to ensure your loved one with cognitive impairment is stimulated and maximizing their quality of life at all times.
Our behavioral health program uses a multi focused approach which includes specially trained nursing staff, phsyco-therapist, and therapeutic recreation staff. Our team provides an environment where our residents can feel safe, stimulated and valued. Our therapist and recreation staff keep our residents engaged and motivated while giving them the tools they need to reduce their behavioral symptoms and live a more independent lifestyle.
Our attractive in ground swimming pool offers recreational and therapeutic swimming adjacent to a large covered patio for visiting and activities. The Dolores Turco Memorial Park offers walkways through gardens and bridges, with benches and swings overlooking the tree-lined campus. The beautiful, calming design of Lincoln Park Care Center has been created to soothe, motivate and stimulate residents to improve their quality of life.
We strive to offer residents a range of creative and therapeutic programs to encourage socialization and participation, with a behavior management focus. Activities include music therapy, pet therapy, horticultural therapy, entertainment, karaoke, holiday parties, and religious services, to name a few. Enrichment programs include crafts, discussion groups, painting workshops, movies and bingo.
Diverse trips assist residents in re-integrating into the community. With a variety of trips each month in our own van to shopping centers, restaurants and recreational destinations, residents are able to use the skills they have learned in psychosocial programs including finance management, communication skills, body image, hygiene, grooming, and anger/medication management.
Our programs are proven to reduce behavioral symptoms by over 95% and allow for a significant improvement in quality of life.
