Not all assisted living communities are the same. Surprisingly, many do not have a memory care program at all. Avanti Senior Living is proud to offer Salize, our innovative memory care program that is based on years of research and designed specifically for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

What is Salize?

What makes Salize so special? Our programming, amenities, and holistic approach to care sets us apart from the competition. Without the use of mood stabilizing drugs, Avanti’s memory care program, Salize, has been clinically shown to reduce agitation, anxiety, aggressiveness and apathy—as well as many of the distressing behaviors that can accompany these emotions. Instead of focusing on altering moods with medications, Salize addresses the underlying causes of negative behaviors by providing opportunities for self-expression, promoting social interactions, and stimulating the mind.

What are the Key Components of the Salize Program?

Salize delivers holistic care to each resident. We combine a variety of specialized exercises, healthy diets, an active lifestyle, and medication management in our program. Our strategy is intended to help persons living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia regain control over their lives. The objective of Salize is for residents to feel strong while still leading a meaningful life. Salize offers customized care based on a resident’s level of need and dementia stage to help them feel at ease at their cognitive level. Additionally, it is designed to provide stimulation and engagement for our residents. We offer a variety of activities, both group and individual, that are tailored to each person’s interests and abilities. Our goal is to help our residents maintain their sense of self and enjoy a meaningful life with the freedom of choice.

How Does the Salize Program Benefit Those Living with Dementia?

When you first walk into the Salize community, you’ll notice that it feels similar to the rest of the Avanti Living network: high ceilings, a lot of natural light, and nicely designed furniture and artistic touches that give it a boutique hotel feel. However, there are several small elements that go unnoticed. Programs, services, and care are all based on the latest research to create an optimal environment for those with dementia. Personalized care plans and
activities that are interesting and engaging are just some of the ways that Salize benefits its residents.

What are the Services and Amenities Provided by Salize?

Salize provides a wide array of services and amenities for our residents. We offer 24-hour supervision and assistance with activities of daily living, as well as scheduled transportation for outings and appointments. Our community is also equipped with a beauty salon and spa. Meals are served three times a day in our restaurant-style dining room. Our programming includes opportunities for socialization, cognitive stimulation, physical activity, and
creative expression.

In addition to our top-notch programming, Salize features comfortable private suites with private bathrooms. Each suite is equipped with an emergency call system, so residents can feel safe and secure in their own space. Families can take comfort in knowing that their loved ones are being well-cared for in a beautiful and nurturing environment.

While our program is based on clinical research, treatments, and highly trained staff, Salize does not appear to be clinical. The medical aspects of the program are actually designed to go unnoticed by our residents. In fact, residents of Salize feel quite at ease, valued, and respected once they move into one of Avanti’s communities.

Salize is located within the beautifully constructed Avanti Living community, which has been expertly created by specialists in the assisted living sector. Members of Salize’s staff don’t wear medical scrubs or street clothing. Our community provides a continuum of care, which means that should a resident’s needs change, they can still receive the care they need within the same community.
