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.”

We searched and visited well over a dozen senior communities looking for the right place to place my dad in memory care, and we were immediately impressed by both the staff and community. We had an extremely difficult (though not unusual) initial transition, but it very quickly became a joy to see how everyone on the staff helped him feel comfortable and appreciated. Everyone we’ve worked with, from the top on down, has been exceptionally and genuinely caring, honest, and helpful. What could have been a very unpleasant experience has been wonderful and a huge relief!”
