Twining Village has opened it new memory care neighborhood.
Located in the Holland, Pennsylvania, senior living community’s personal care building, the memory care unit provides secure, memory-focused support for personal care residents. The new unit was developed within the overall personal care community, with changes having created a unit serving 25 people with memory-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Memory care is provided in a secure unit, with consistent staffing and specialized programs to support maintenance of as much memory-related faculties as possible. Activities, music and other programming are geared toward supporting memory.
The April 20 ribbon-cutting ceremony was designed for families and residents. A dedication event was held for external organizations and others April 27.
Taking part in the ribbon-cutting in late April are, left to right, Donyale Showers, Twining executive director; Scott Habecker, Diakon chief operating and financial officer; Barbara Valentine, resident; Michaela Howard, memory care patient-care manager; Sonja Rozolis, resident; Mark Pile, Diakon president/CEO; the Rev. Erin Maurer, Twining Village chaplain; and Marilyn Boyer, Twining Village independent living resident.
