What programs or activities does Pacifica Senior Living Portland offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?
Pacifica Senior Living Portland offers a robust activities program staffed by an activities director and activities assistants. We follow the “7 daily keys” insuring to incorporate physical wellness, reminiscing, social, cognitive, music, life skills and the outdoors when creating the activities programs for our resident 7 days a week. Group activities include but are not limited to exercise, gardening, movies, baking, games & puzzles, art classes and live performances. One on one activities are also incorporated through the day tailored to residents individual interests. Long-term memories are engaged through activities such as reminiscing with memory books, having musical and dancing activities.
Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?
Each resident is assessed by the registered nurse every 90 days. After the resident has had his/her assessment, a care conference is scheduled with the family/Power of Attorney and resident to meet with the executive director, registered nurse, and activities director.
What techniques does Pacifica Senior Living Portland use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?
As Pacifica Senior Living practices individual person-centered care, techniques vary per resident and are meant to be independent appropriate. Techniques may include reminders, cueing, mechanically enhanced foods, hand-under-hand assistance, or a total assist with feeding. To enrich the dining experience we also provide all our meals on colorful plating.
How does Pacifica Senior Living Portland keep residents' families informed about their loved ones' health?
At 30 days after move-in and every 90 days thereafter following the assessment by the nurse, a Care Conference is conducted between the family or POA, Associate Executive Director and resident if they wish to attend. Intermittently, health concerns are communicated as they may arise.
