Katherine Smith Hall / Memory Support
Moosehaven’s dementia program is operated in Katherine Smith Hall, which was specifically designed to provide residential dementia services. It features a fully functioning kitchen, round the clock activities, residential laundry, residential furnishing, bright colors and specially trained staff. We have individualized activities and homemaking projects to give each resident a sense of purpose and meaning. We share with our residents our own personal family stories. Our family members participate in our events. While a purposeful design contributes, the success of Moosehaven’s memory support program lies in its emphasis on relationships (resident to resident, resident to staff and staff to staff).

Structured Activities Program
What is Moosehaven doing to help deal with what is a very real part of growing older for many people? Services for residents with dementia are built into our continuum of care. People are most familiar with the services provided in Skilled Nursing and Katherine Smith Special Needs Hall for Moosehaven residents experiencing the later stages of dementia. We also have a very exciting program that is designed to benefit residents living in all areas of the campus who experience signs of the early to moderate stages of dementia and even the effects of normal aging.
The program provides life enhancing interactions for Moosehaven residents helping them maintain or improve their physical, social, cognitive and daily living skills through supported activities. The goals of the program focus on providing residents (including resident volunteers) greater opportunity to experience an enhanced sense of being productive, group membership and simply enjoying life. Lunch is family style where residents help set the tables, pass the food and clean up after the meal. Activities may take many forms including art, music, crafts, puzzles, pictures, games, movies, current events, news and nostalgia. It may focus on sewing, gardening, woodworking, cooking/baking, household chores, developing daily planners and reminders or other activities that the resident enjoys and may find challenging. Residents also engage in physical activities such as seated exercise, Tai Chi, group walks, stretching, swimming, dance, and games requiring movement. Spiritual aspects of life are incorporated through reading, discussion, and computer based broadcast. The IN2L computer system is used extensively in this program with enthusiastic reaction from the residents. Any and all activities offered on campus can be incorporated into the program as residents and staff collaborate to plan their week. The residents report feeling better, having more energy, less memory related issues, and greater overall enjoyment.
