AWARD WINNING ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA CARE


At St. Leonard, we understand that caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related illness comes with a unique set of obstacles and challenges. The Memory Care Unit of our state-of-the-art San Damiano Residence has been thoughtfully designed to meet these special challenges.

  • The entire San Damiano Residence staff is specially trained to focus on caring for residents with various forms of dementia.
  • Under expert guidance, residents are provided with activities such as music, art, and pet therapy.

CUSTOM DEMENTIA CARE: OUR BBET PROGRAM

Our Behavior-Based Ergonomics Therapy program features tools that are available 24/7 in a resource center on the memory care unit. For example, each memory care resident has a customized “memory prop box” in the resource center where special items provided by his or her family can be securely stored. These items are often sentimental (such as family photos, magazines, mementos, etc.) and provide comfort for the residents.

St. Leonard has garnered two national awards for its Behavior-Based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET) program:

  • The Dorland Health Silver Crown Award recognizes organizations and individuals who provide exceptional services, products and information to the adult and senior community. St. Leonard’s BBET program is a finalist for the award’s Alzheimer’s Care category.
  • The 2011 Quality Improvement Award sponsored by the AMDA Foundation and Pfizer is a research award dedicated to encouraging innovative quality programs in long-term care. It is a prestigious national competition and is only awarded to three applicants each year.
