For those who suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia, recognizing the familiar is a welcome comfort not only for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia but also for their families. Pine Run Retirement Community’s innovative Portrait Program helps our caregiver teams compile a portrait of each resident to customize their care plan.
This highly individualized program is created from more than medical history and pharmacy records. Our expert caregivers talk to each resident’s family members and friends to make note of the resident’s personal preferences and routines. All the information goes into a care plan designed to help support and maintain meaningful aspects of a resident’s lifestyle. Physicians, family and staff interact, completing an effective circle of communication.
