Heart Healthy and Great Tasting Meals for Seniors

Heart Healthy and Great Tasting Meals for Seniors

Making sure our seniors eat healthy is a very important part when caring for them. Just because it is healthy does not mean it can’t be tasteful!! Eating healthy is important for all ages but as for our seniors, it can help prevent chronic diseases and other health conditions. Older adults need a lower calorie meal with more nutrients.

Active Minds

Active Minds

Art and Creativity can help people with dementia and Alzheimer’s in many ways. Art can help them cope with the emotional impact of memory loss, such as anxiety, frustration, sadness, apathy, depression and anger. It can also improve cognitive processes like attention, concentration, and memory. Art can also provide an alternative way to communicate to people with impaired language skills. Art is also known to help maintain or improve hand-brain coordination and fine motor skills. Sensory stimulation is also known to sharpen the senses and encourage patients to be more active.
Creative art therapies can improve an all over well-being.

Innovations in Memory Care

Innovations in Memory Care

Innovations in memory care and how it works enhances the quality of life for seniors with memory loss. Here are a few advancements in memory care treatment resulting in innovative approaches to care and support.
Person-Centered Care is where the individual takes center stage their care plan by focusing and acknowledging their distinct need, preferences and abilities. This approach to care recognizes that each person with memory loss is unique, with their own values, and interests.
Technology is another innovative approach, and it has completely transformed how we provide care for seniors experiencing memory loss, introducing a range of new tools and resources to enhance their well-being and support their over-all care. Virtual reality is one example while it is used to help provide residents with immersive experiences promoting cognitive function and engagement.

Keep Them Active

It is very important to keep our seniors as active and healthy as possible. With that being said, exercise is very vital and important for them

Here are a few wellness and fitness tips for seniors:
Listen to your body: Adjust workouts based on your comfort and pain levels.
Stay hydrated: Drink at least eight ounces of water per day, and more if you are active or live in a hot climate.
Eat well: Nutritious diet is important for fueling your body.
Make movement social: Join group classes or start a walking club to benefit from companionship and the health benefits of walking.
Celebrate achievements: Acknowledge your progress and reward your efforts.

Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil

When Kristie Carty, Sales Specialist for Atlas Senior Living, saw how much our community loved Weevil Way, she knew right away she wanted to be part of this program and give back to the community

Madison Heights and Kelley Place is the first specialty care community to focus on memory care in Enterprise, Alabama. Naturally, their weevil had to represent the individuals and families who suffer from Alzheimer’s and dementia daily. 
Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil is dressed in a purple sports coat, a representation of the Alzheimer’s Association. His navy-blue slacks are the signature color for Atlas Senior living. His cul-de-sac hairstyle, glasses, and cane are a few common sights seen when visiting the beautiful people who reside in the community. It is a shared hope that Mr. Geri Patrick Weevil will inspire and encourage more people to educate themselves regarding Memory Care communities, and to know there is help right around the corner.
