working out

Basic daily living becomes a challenge as Alzheimer's advances. At The Cottage, we ensure that the resident lives their fullest life by caring for them with strong support in those activities of daily living. Dressing, bathing, and grooming are just the beginning. We focus on programs that include minimizing overstimulation, physical discomfort, and complicated tasks, limit barriers to communication, and offer a bowel and bladder program – regular, consistent toileting every 2 hours.

Exercise – Sittercise, Walking, Balloon Volley
Sequencing/Sorting – Earring Sorting, Nuts & Bolts, Stringing Beads
Sensory Stimulation Activity – Pet Therapy, Art Appreciation
Cognitive Therapy – Coin Fun, Jigsaw Puzzles
Recreational Therapy/Physical Activity – Ring Toss, Simon Says, Circle Dancing
Arts & Crafts – Rock Painting, Scrapbooking, Flower Arranging
Reminiscing Activity – Memory Book, Show & Tell
Relaxation Therapy – Reading Corner, Hand Massage, Music Therapy
Spiritual – Devotions, Hymn Recall

We provide activities that encourage sensory stimulation, physical movement, and relaxation which in turn help to maintain and increase memory function.
