Memory Care Simulated Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor environment simulation

May 1, 2023

In the quest to provide the highest quality of care for our memory care residents at our assisted living community in Troy, we've taken an innovative approach. We've created simulated outdoor spaces - a unique concept that merges the benefits of nature with the safety of an indoor environment.

These simulated outdoor spaces are meticulously designed to mimic the calming ambiance of a garden, park, or a cozy backyard setting. Each space is filled with realistic flora, a soothing palette of colors, naturalistic sounds, and even sunlight simulators to emulate the feeling of a real outdoor environment. The aim is to provide our memory care residents with a sense of freedom, independence, and familiarity in a secure setting.

Research indicates that nature and the outdoors have a positive impact on individuals dealing with memory-related issues, such as dementia or Alzheimer's. The sensory stimulation from natural elements can spark memories, promote relaxation, and reduce stress levels. By integrating these elements into our community, we're able to provide these therapeutic benefits within a controlled and safe environment.

Residents can spend time in these areas whenever they please, engaging with nature while enjoying the company of their peers, caregivers, or visiting loved ones. The immersive nature of these spaces ensures that the experiences our residents have are authentic, enjoyable, and beneficial to their overall well-being.

Our simulated outdoor spaces are just one aspect of the comprehensive memory care services we offer. We understand that every individual's journey with memory-related conditions is unique, and we are committed to providing tailored care that meets the specific needs of each resident.

In conclusion, our mission is to not only provide a safe, caring environment for our memory care residents but to also create a living space where they can continue to enjoy the things they love. Our simulated outdoor spaces are a testament to this commitment, bridging the gap between nature's therapeutic effects and the necessary safety measures, thus creating a nurturing and comforting environment for our residents.
