Wesley Village introduces a new memory support community, “Lifestyle Transitions”, located in the newly renovated Northwest Wing of our Wesley Heights community. “Lifestyle Transitions” at Wesley Heights offers specialized assisted living in a secure, supportive environment for those with increased care needs or those living with memory loss.
“Lifestyle Transitions” offers affordable pricing, a wander-management system, 24-hour staffing with caregivers trained by the Alzheimer’s Association, on-site physician services, engaging activities, a variety of apartment styles for individuals or couples, education and support services for residents and families, and a specialized design to maximize independence.
Wesley Village receives a grant from the Valley Community Foundation to create and implement the Music and Memory program on the campus. Individuals struggling from dementia and other cognitive and physical impairments now have the opportunity to reconnect with family, friends, and caregivers through Music & Memory.
The Music & Memory approach involves training care professionals to set up personalized music playlists, delivered on iPods and other digital devices. These musical favorites can then tap deep memories not lost to dementia, which enable residents to converse, socialize, stay present, and feel like themselves again.
Wesley Village is the first Music & Memory Certified Care Facility in the Valley and one of only a few in the State of Connecticut.
