Memory Care

Hudson Hills Alzheimer’s Care, Dementia & Memory Loss Care Services are focused firmly on the individual and on providing a safe, familiar, yet stimulating environment. The Hudson Hills neighborhood is specially designed to provide comfort and security in a separate environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other forms of memory loss. Our team is trained to value each senior and to recognize their different preferences and needs. We know that memory loss affects every resident differently and focus on understanding each individual senior to provide memory loss care they respond to positively.

Hudson Hills Reminiscence Program

At Hudson Hills, we have a specially designed Reminiscence Neighborhood for seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. We begin with understanding the stories and details of a senior’s life so we can help all experience pleasant days. Our professional team is dedicated to maintaining the dignity and individuality of every resident. They design personalized programs with multi-sensory experiences, daily exercise and outings, group activities and regular contact with children and pets, depending on what benefits each individual senior.

Our Reminiscence Program offers a variety of elements to engage residents and nurture their spirit. Every neighborhood is a secure environment that features Life Skills Centers and Reminiscence kits that help involve residents in familiar daily routines such as gardening, sewing, office work and household chores.

Validation Technique

Hudson Hills Senior Living is an Authorized Validation Organization, training team members in the Validation Method of interacting with those living with dementia. Validation is a method of communicating with and helping those who are disoriented that allows for better understanding and communication between those with dementia and theircaregivers. It helps to reduce stress, enhance dignity and increase happiness. By being empathetic and seeing through the eyes of those with memory loss, caregivers are able to better understand the meaning of their actions and words.

Individualized Service Plan (ISP), Services & Amenities

At Hudson Hills, we believe that every individual has their own needs and preferences, and so we meet with each resident and family before they move in – and at regular intervals afterwards – to help determine appropriate care and service. A team of our community professionals comprised of the executive director, Reminiscence coordinator, health care coordinator, and designated care manager work together to create an individualized plan that is monitored on a daily basis and is updated based on the individual’s changing needs. We focus on preserving each resident’s dignity, encouraging independence and enabling freedom of choice. The resident-centered plan might include:

  • help with personal hygiene and grooming
  • dressing and clothes selection
  • showering and bathing
  • assistance with eating
  • continence management
  • mobility
  • socialization
  • medication management
