Milestone Retirement Communities Activities Director in Anacortes, Washington
Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to care delivery. We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model.
We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as in their Dementia journey. We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well. We find it’s the spontaneous moments that have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver.
Living In The Moment, is the greatest gift we can give to anyone we serve; during their journey.
