Currently, more than 6 million Americans are living with Dementia, and will increase to 13 million in the next 3 decades. Dementia not only affects the individual diagnosed, but also their caregivers, families and friends. While there is no known cure for Dementia, early diagnosis and intervention are critical in managing the progression of the disease.
What is Salize?
Salize, Avanti Senior Living’s memory care program is clinically proven to reduce agitation, anxiety, aggression and apathy without the use of mood stabilizing drugs. The program takes into account an individual’s engagement, fitness and nutrition needs in order to provide the best possible care.
One of the key components of Salize is engagement. The program offers a variety of activities that are designed to stimulate the mind and body, including but not limited to reminiscence therapy, art therapy, music therapy and pet therapy.
In addition to engagement, Salize also focuses on fitness. The program offers daily fitness classes that are tailored to each individual’s abilities. These classes help to improve balance, muscle strength and flexibility, which can help to reduce the risk of falls.
A healthy diet is an important part of any senior living community, and Avanti is no exception. The Salize program offers healthy meals that are designed to meet the needs of those with Dementia. Meals are served family-style in order to encourage social interaction and promote a sense of community.
