What programs or activities does Oak Pointe of Washington offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Oak Pointe of Washington's Memory Care Neighborhood is designed to engage residents and encourage interaction between residents and caregivers. The neighborhood is intentionally designed to provide “activity” stations that appeal to residents who are may wander or have repetitive behaviors. The neighborhood offers an activities table with puzzles, memory games, adult coloring and painting supplies that residents have access to around the clock. The space is open and conducive to those who enjoy walking and offers activities stations for sorting and folding, sensory stimulation, organizing and tactile stimulation. Reminiscing activities often feature a topic and encourage residents to share their experiences from a past time in their lives to stimulate long-term memory.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

In addition to our trained caregivers, Oak Pointe of Washington's Director of Nursing manages the assessment of each resident using monthly reviews, regularly scheduled individual service plan updates and ongoing communication with staff and families. Our team establishes a baseline cognitive level for each Memory Care Neighborhood resident during the admission assessment process. Residents are formally re-assessed and their individual plans are established upon admission and updated every six months or when changes are observed by staff that require a new plan to ensure resident needs are being addressed.

What techniques does Oak Pointe of Washington use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

Oak Pointe of Washington provides each Memory Care Resident with choices and options for meals. Working with families, we identify “likes” & “dislikes” related to food choices and ensure each resident receives nutritious, well-balanced meals that appeal to the resident’s tastes. Caregivers take orders for each meal & residents join each other in a family-style setting in the dining area to share the meal. To assist our dementia residents in making their meal choices, our caregivers often use our picture menus to help them decide what they want to eat. Caregivers often share the meal with residents providing a modeling opportunity that encourages residents to eat. As resident’s progress through the varying stages of dementia, caregivers may request certain types of foods, for example, finger foods or sweet tasting items that appeal to the resident. To encourage residents to eat, our neighborhood Bistro is set up to offer drinks & snacks that residents can have throughout the day.
