What is memory care and the Journey by Aspira program?
Journey by Aspira is our specialized memory care program where our welcoming team guides you along the path of your own personal Journey. Using our compassionate, person-centred approach, we work with you to ensure a fulfilling and meaningful life, while addressing the needs that may arise while living with memory loss.
Journey was developed based on evidence and best-in-class techniques, taking guidance from nationally recognized dementia care standards through the Alzheimer’s Society and Health Canada among others.
Equipped with enhanced education in memory care approaches and techniques, our Journey Managers are specially trained to meet you where you are at on your Journey by expertly supporting individuals experiencing varying levels of physical or cognitive impairments.
The Supporting Team
We understand the need to have consistent, specially-educated team members in place with appropriate staffing levels to ensure your continued safety and well-being.
Service Plan Development
As part of your Journey with us, we work with you and your loved ones to shape and manage a personalized service plan to respond to your evolving needs while respecting your dignity, wishes and values.
We work with you to build a personal, monthly daily activity calendar, suitable to your interests and appropriate to your physical and cognitive well-being.
Our It’s Never 2 Late senior engagement technology enhances quality of life through interactive games, virtual scenic walks, music therapy and more.
Our Life Stations encourage you to partake in pleasurable activities such as arts and crafts, puzzles, our Indoor Garden Tower and more. Family members are always welcome to join.
We focus on making your surroundings as inviting and easy to navigate as possible. By using wayfinding signage and considering lighting, colour contrast and textures throughout the residence, we aim to make it easier for you to safely maintain independence.
It is important for you, your loved ones, and our team members to be on the same page when it comes to meeting your needs. This is why we deliver monthly newsletters to keep you informed while regularly reviewing your Journey Guidebook to maximize your stay with us.
