CUSTOMIZED ENGAGEMENT EMPOWERS RESIDENTS.
Avanti takes a completely individualized approach to helping our residents thrive.
This happens through intensive staff training and offering individualized experiences that foster independence and reassurance. Participation is invitational and gently encouraged, but is always left to the resident to decide.
Current Events: Care partners assist with reading the morning newspaper together, keeping residents informed, while sparking lively discussions about current events and personal experiences.
Art Classes: From painting to collage to clay to other forms of arts and crafts, residents are guided to create beautiful things in a variety of mediums.
Brain Games: Using electronic tablets, residents can play brain-training games to help with memory, focus and cognition.
Groups & Committees: Individuals with similar interests meet regularly to create and collaborate on projects, such as sending care packages to troops serving overseas, singing groups, knitting items for the homeless, volunteering at a local animal shelter and other activities that create a sense of meaning, contributions and purpose.
Fitness Classes: We offer multiple fun, interactive classes daily that include dance, yoga and balance taught by a full-time personal trainer. We also exercise the mind with meditation and mindfulness training, which as been shown to slow the progression of dementia.
Spa & Salon: We ensure residents look and feel their best at Avanti’s on-site salon. Residents can get cuts, colors and styling for men and women, as well as manicures and pedicures. Plus, relaxing and therapeutic massages are available at our spa.
While not every activity appeals to each person, most residents find something that naturally engages their attention, feels meaningful and creates joy in their lives.
