Award-Winning Evergreen Memory Care Program
Specifically tailored for those with memory impairment and dementia, our Evergreen Programs at The Greens at Cannondale offer a full range of memory care services. The Evergreen programs are designed to maintain our residents’ cognitive abilities while keeping them socially engaged.
Our mission in creating Evergreen was to establish a “gently structured” environment that’s comfortable and secure where each resident’s individual needs and qualities are recognized and respected. The Programs are specific to the needs of each individual resident and take into account personal interactive styles, personal history and important connections to the past. Our staff takes the time to discover the personal history of each resident and show how important those connections are.
We provide compassionate care coupled with an active and mentally stimulating environment. Our Evergreen resident participants live in our first-floor apartments which are situated around lovely secure walkways and a garden courtyard.
Our high staff-to-resident ratio includes a full-time nurse, and all members of our staff have been specially trained, earning certification in the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Training Program. Their skills enable them to cater to a wide spectrum of dementia care, from residents in early stages to those who respond better to other approaches such as sensory exercises, aromatherapy, psychiatric services and certified music therapy.
