Award winning Magnolia Manor in Columbus provides specialized memory care with dementia-specific programs and quality care provided by our caring and dedicated staff. As Alzheimer's progresses, we offer support in the form of education and pastoral counseling through our trained staff and family support groups.
Security is paramount for our memory care residents who may be inclined to wander or deliberately seek exits.
Memory Care Activities
Our memory care residents receive all the advantages we can give them, in surroundings that feel like home, from staff who are well-trained and personally attentive.
Modern memory care takes each patient where they are in their dementia progression and works to make the most of the abilities they still have. Because memory care residents 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.
Magnolia Manor contributes to healing and wholeness with a comprehensive program, providing physical, social, and spiritual care for our residents suffering from Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related diseases. We maintain a loving safe environment while preserving dignity and providing quality care.
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.
We offer pastoral counseling, support groups and other resources for families and we encourage families to join our residents for meals and onsite activities.
A Community within a Community
Our Columbus campus is very community-oriented, like a family. Columbus itself is a large city, but our small campus is the perfect setting for residents and staff to form tight-knit bonds. 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 that surround our campus. .
