Touchmark is committed to providing relationship-centered care that meets residents where they are and encourages them to live a full life. We use the industry-leading Best Friends™ Approach to care to get to know each individual resident and build a relationship with them.
To further help residents living in our memory care neighborhoods experience meaningful connections with family members, friends, and staff, Touchmark has developed the tools listed below.
- The ABCs of Life Book: This picture-based communication
tool helps people recall long-term memories by triggering them as they go through the alphabet. It is a 2014 winner of the ALFA National Mature Media Awards.
- Memory Care Resource Flip Book: This valuable resource was created to provide caregivers and loved ones with
information on a variety of subjects related to a dementia diagnosis and the journey of the disease.
- Memory Blocks: Colorful blocks with words on them can help residents form sentences and short stories, recall memories from certain words, or sort blocks according to color.
- Match and Chat Game: Based on local states/provinces and their corresponding flags, this game challenges memory to match the correct cards together, and also features a more personal reminiscing feature with questions about where a person has lived and traveled.
To learn more about these tools and how you can use them for yourself or with your loved one, speak with a team member in memory care.
