Memory Care Activities
Because residents at the Mattie H. Marshall Center are at different stages of dementia, our activities director organizes group activities for those at similar levels. No one gets left out. Residents particularly like bingo, and if someone needs help placing their markers, then they get that help so they can continue to play along.
Domestic chores are another common activity because Alzheimer’s patients often remember things they routinely did around the house or at work. So our staff works with residents to fold and sort laundry, or pair socks or other domestic exercises. If a resident worked as a secretary, then we might sit her down at a desk with a notepad and pen. These activities help with cognitive function and also help maintain small muscle and hand-eye coordination.
Music is often an important presence for dementia patients because it evokes older memories. Our memory care residents all love music, especially older songs. Oftentimes they can’t remember what’s happening now, but they remember plenty from their younger days. They can sing the songs from their youth all the way through.
For memory care patients with a strong faith, those beliefs still resonate. Our on-site chaplain comes to do devotions, sing spiritual songs with the residents and perform services twice a week. Our dedicated staff assists by reading scripture or devotions to residents who can no longer read the Bible on their own.
A Community within a Community
Our Americus campus is very community-oriented, like a family. Americus itself is a small town, and our residents are often involved with the schools and local organizations. We aim to not only build strong relationships among residents and staff, but we also strive to create meaningful connections with businesses, churches, and schools, like Georgia Southwestern, that surround our campus.
