Each senior in our care has a unique life story, something that is very important to how we care for him or her. The Varietas® Memory Care Program relies on the things we learn about your loved one to comfort and connect with them in a warm and nurturing environment.
The Varietas® Program is a model of caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and age-related memory impairments. The tenants of the program are proven to maximize quality of life for individuals suffering from these disorders.
The program is designed to create a true therapeutic environment, reducing stressful stimuli and fostering the natural rhythms of each day. A combination of therapeutic and positive stimulation—including expressive arts, exercise, nutrition, reminiscing and cognitive activities—is used to enhance social engagement with peers, families and staff members.
Behavior-Based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET) is a nationally recognized and award-winning non-pharmacological, personalized approach we use with residents that is proven to promote resident engagement and reduce agitation, depression, falls and medication use.
A state-of-the-art security system also allows residents to live independently while remaining within the comfort of a safe and secure environment. And all Varietas® staff receive Certified Dementia Practitioner Training, the highest standard in Alzheimer’s and Dementia education.
Here is a video that talks about the VARIETAS® program at our central Kentucky sister community, Highgrove in Lexington. (Side note: Ashtongrove’s Executive Director began her time with Traditions Management as their Community Relations Director, so you may recognize her in the video.)
