Personal Care & Activities of Daily Living

Your loved one may need help with their personal care or activities of daily living. With warm smiles, gentle touches, and encouraging words, we will assist them with personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, and oral care), dressing, eating, incontinence management, and transferring them, such as moving from seated to standing, as well as, getting in and out of bed.

Social Interaction

Studies demonstrate that people with healthy connections and relationships have greater emotional well-being, live healthier lives, and have longer life expectancies. We will encourage your loved one to participate in programs and activities that help them make those connections, stimulate socialization, and give them an enhanced sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging. Social hours, celebrations, barbecues, ice cream socials, and sharing stories are a few examples of our social activities that can create a sense of joy and purpose.

Emotional Support

Our attentive, 24-hour care team is here to enrich your loved one’s life through the highest standards of safety, care, dignity, and respect. Wherever your day takes you, you’ll never have to feel like a burden again.

Physical Activity

Leading a physically active lifestyle can significantly impact everyone’s well-being—including those with all forms of Dementia. Exercise is beneficial for both physical and mental health, and may improve the quality of life for people in all stages of their Dementia. We offer physical activities such as walking, gardening, or dancing, as well as sports and exercises with the aim of improving fitness, building strength, and providing fun for your loved one.

Mental Stimulation

Research shows that cognitive stimulation can help slow the decline of Dementia in its early stages. Our programs will engage your loved one in meaningful activities to stimulate cognitive function while addressing individual needs. Playing games, working with puzzles, or doing practical activities (such as writing or folding laundry) are some of the ways we can help your loved one engage their brain.

Life Enrichment Activities

Specially designed for people living with Dementia and related illnesses, our personalized life enrichment activities strive to maximize independence while focusing on individual strengths and abilities. Your loved one will safely engage in activities such as picnics, arts and crafts, walks through the courtyard, cards, and games. From book clubs to puzzles, trivia games to movies, and much more, we strive to keep your loved one informed and engaged. Our goal is to provide a meaningful quality of life every day.

Artistic Expression

Art and music can provide powerful opportunities for connection for those with memory loss. We encourage artistic expression by offering your loved one chances to express themselves using a variety of mediums. Activities include crafts, decorative arts, and performing arts. Our retirement community also uses music therapy as a tool to bring your loved one happy relaxation or provide toe-tapping fun.

2. What’s the difference between Rathdrum senior living and a nursing home?

The two terms are often used interchangeably, but senior living facilities and nursing homes are two different things.

A senior living community (also known as a retirement community) is a residential facility designed to give older adults a healthy social environment with a calendar full of life-enriching activities, all in a stay-at-home setting. Think of it like a cruise ship with medical assistance that is available should you need it.

Senior living is the perfect option for older adults who are mostly independent but may occasionally require assistance with day-to-day living.

A skilled nursing facility (more often referred to as a nursing home) is an in-patient medical treatment and rehabilitation center staffed with trained medical professionals. Patients receive 24-hour medical supervision due to physical or mental conditions that leave them unable to care for themselves.

A stay in a skilled nursing facility is the equivalent of a long-term hospital stay and shouldn’t be a permanent option for your housing needs.

3. How do I choose a Rathdrum senior living community?

Choosing the right community for senior living in Rathdrum, ID, is a big decision. You want to feel at home while also knowing that all your needs will be met.

Here are some tips to help you compare communities and choose the right one for you:

  • Know your needs.
  • Take a tour.

  • Observe staff-resident interaction.
  • Check into community licensing.
  • Consider the financial aspect.

We’re confident that Generations Memory Care will provide the community you’re looking for.
