Does my loved one need memory care?

If your family member in Mesa, AZ, lives with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, relief from your caretaking duties is available at Broadway Mesa Village. People experiencing memory loss can benefit from the Pegasus Senior Living Connections program.

The Connections Program for Memory Care

Over a decade ago, a stroke left Pegasus Senior Living Health and Wellness Consultant Dr. Sandra Petersen unable to walk, speak or process simple memory tasks. Through rehabilitation with brain health specialists, she discovered neuroplasticity treatment.

It’s a big word, but neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to be dynamic. As the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia cause changes in the brain, Dr. Petersen’s own experiences triggered an idea to combat that.

If it could work post-stroke, why couldn’t the same idea of neuroplasticity work in memory care? And so I began thinking about how I might be able to take those neuroplastic concepts, those of connecting through emotions, moving, and providing new information, to retain and gain skills.” – Dr. Petersen

Dr. Petersen was able to make a recovery after only two years. She challenged her brain by learning new languages and gained mobility through learning ballroom dancing. By stimulating the mind and body and presenting it with new tasks, she returned to teaching and consulting medical practices.

Memory Care with Connections

Our philosophy provides a superior quality of life and an increased life expectancy for memory care residents using evidence-based techniques. Here’s how we do it:

  • Engage the emotions through expressive activities like art, music, and reminiscing.
  • Encouraging Movement by offering exercise and physical activity for all ability levels.
  • Challenging the Brain with word games, puzzles, and matching exercises.
  • Supporting Socialization within a secure environment. From parties to just lounging around, forming new relationships is highly encouraged in our community.
