Resident Benefits

Untitled

Residents living in an ActivCare community benefit in many ways.

  • Because the perimeters are secured, the residents often enjoy their freedom to move about, which helps decrease agitation.

  • The activity-based program actually helps decrease wandering behavior by focusing residents' attention and interest into positive outlets.

  • Psychotropic medications are often times reduced, increasing residents' alertness and activeness, which can be focused into meaningful activities.

  • The social settings and routines of meal times help residents enjoy dining and intake may actually improve.

  • The reduced pressure to "fit in" or "behave" helps decrease depression and catastrophic reactions, which may have been prevalent in the home setting.

  • Residents many times sleep better and develop patterns of rest as a result of the busy daily schedule in ActivCare.

  • Toileting routines and habits developed with staff assistance helps reduce incontinence.

  • New residents may experience a period of transition that may last one to four weeks, but then adjust well to their new home.
