Bella Vita believes that social integration is an important part of our daily lives, and even for those with cognitive decline, being with others can support in many different ways, however, we must be sure to balance this with an environment which is not overstimulating and cause agitation. Dining areas are minimal, reduced of any items that are not required, so as to optimize the food, opposed to distractions, allowing the resident to focus. Our interior design is also calming, in the soft grays, clean lines and patterns so as to not distract with patterns. In some instances, our residents may need support with eating, and our staff are committed to be with their residents and assist with eating if required.
