Firsthand Understanding, First-class Memory Care | San Luis Obispo County

We've Navigated Memory Loss, Too.

Pegasus Senior Living’s Connections program is a unique, research-based memory care program designed to help senior residents with Alzheimer’s and/or dementia in the Paso Robles area lead a stimulating life. The program offers a secure environment, a committed and caring staff, and a variety of activities designed to fit the unique needs of those living with cognitive decline.

We understand the time, effort, and emotional toll that caregiving can take on a family. If you’re wondering if your loved one’s care needs are beyond your abilities, Creston Village may be able to help.

Activities like music, art, and social interaction are designed to trigger memory and positive emotions in those struggling with cognitive decline.
Connections can help your loved one stay engaged with:

Encouraging Movement

The connection between the mind and body is well-established in scientific research, and the Connections program encourages physical activity to maximize quality of life in memory care. San Luis Obispo county residents under careful supervision at Creston Village can participate in boxing, walking clubs, and other fitness programs to help them achieve an active body and mind.

We also provide a variety of brain-healthy foods for residents.

Supporting Socialization

Research shows that socialization with others is critical to the maintenance of mental health and cognition. The process of regular interaction with others can help seniors achieve a better sense of belonging and provide a sense of structure. We provide a variety of group activities that allow residents to foster relationships and connect to others.

Inspired by Experience

Medical Director Dr. Sandra Petersen’s background in the memory care field goes back over 30 years, but it was her own experience that inspired the novel approach of the Connections program.

Over a decade ago, a stroke left her unable to use the left side of her body and connect with language skills; she even had trouble completing a sentence.

“The whole experience gave me not only sympathy, but empathy for those that struggle with cognitive decline,” says Dr. Petersen. 

With the help of a brain health specialist, she worked her way back through a variety of techniques designed to rebuild neural pathways, including learning Spanish and ballroom dancing.

“I wondered whether the same principles that helped me, like connecting through emotion, moving, and learning new information, could work to stimulate the brain of someone with cognitive impairment.”
