Tanglewood Group - Assisted Living, Adult Day Services and Respite Care - Jamestown, NY - Education
Education
Alzheimer's, vascular disease or any other disease process that causes dementia creates unique needs in those affected.  Caregivers need to be taught through education and example, how to successfully interact with people whose communication skills have deteriorated and how to assist with personal care when an individual is resistive.  We facilitate Alzheimer's Support Groups in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Association.  Place, dates and times as follows:

The second Tuesday of each month at 1:00PM:
Memory Garden
560 Fairmount Ave.
Jamestown, NY 14701

The third Thursday of each month at 7:00PM:
Memory Garden
560 Fairmount Ave.
Jamestown, NY 14701

"As we adapt to the unique needs of each individual, the staff at Memory Garden has learned its most important lessons from our residents:  We have learned to reminisce as they share their life stories with us.  We have become more culturally aware as we learn about their backgrounds and traditions.  We have developed specialized approaches while interacting with many different personalities. We have learned to appreciate the benefits of non-verbal communication as our residents struggle daily to make their needs known.  And, finally, we have realized that flexibility and creativity are the most important tools to use in a disease process that affects each person in such an individualized manner."

Testimonials

"Staff members make a point of knowing the unique effect the illness has had on my mother, and on other residents, and respond to them appropriately and with understanding. We always feel welcome when we visit, and when we leave, we know that my mother is being watched over with care and receiving the attention she needs."
Melinda M.
