Memory Care

Memory Care FishersEach senior in our care has a unique life story, something that is very important to how we care for him or her. The Varietas® Memory Care Program relies on the things we learn about your loved one to comfort and connect with them in a warm and nurturing environment.

The Varietas® Program is a model of caring for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and age-related memory impairments. The tenets of the program are proven to maximize quality of life for individuals suffering from these disorders.

The program is designed to create a true therapeutic environment, reducing stressful stimuli and fostering the natural rhythms of each day. A combination of therapeutic and positive stimulation—including expressive arts, exercise, nutrition, reminiscing and cognitive activities—is used to enhance social engagement with peers, families and staff members.

Psychosocial Interventions Therapies
Psychosocial interventions improve cognitive abilities, enhance emotional well-being, reduce behavioral symptoms and promote everyday functioning. We do this through cognitive stimulation, cognitive training, reminiscent therapy, aromatherapy and music therapy.

Psychosocial Interventions are proven to:

  • Improve sleep
  • Improve appetite
  • Reduce difficult behaviors
  • Reduce medication usage
  • Reduce falls
  • Promote social engagement in activities
  • Enhance resident, family and staff interaction

Dementia Certified Practitioner LogoVarietas® staff members undergo specialized training, meet detailed requirements and have applied for regular certification through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP). The Certified Dementia Practitioner® (CDP®) program recognizes the need for standards in the area of Alzheimer's and dementia education, and helps to improve the services provided by health care professionals and frontline staff. A state-of-the-art security system also allows residents to live independently while remaining within the comfort of a safe and secure environment.

You couldn't want anything better. This has been an excellent experience for us. From the first tour to the assessment, to move in, all the staff have been wonderful to work with. The food is great according to my loved one. Traditions ranks up there at the top, and they are very good.

My mom has lived in the assisted living section for two years. She is very happy and comfortable in her spacious one bedroom apartment. The staff is friendly and kind. They are incredibly caring to my mom. She loves the contained outdoor courtyard. She enjoys bingo and her bible study group.
Debbie and Edel
The staff at Traditions makes living at the facility feel like home for dad. Everyone is friendly and genuinely cares about the residents and their families. They have worked to assist in making the transition from independent to assisted living very smooth.
