At Pacifica Senior Living, providing the very best care to our residents is our number one priority. Whether it is in Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care, our team of committed caregivers and associates are always striving to make our residents feel at home, supported, and cared for each and every day.
Memory and sense are closely connected. A smell, a feel, or a sound can often evoke strong memories. Music therapy is an important tool in Memory Care fields that can be used to help those dealing with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other memory loss conditions.
Music is powerful and emotional. Sounds are so closely linked with internal memories and muscle memories, that often we connect sounds with recollections without even realizing it. If you’ve ever tapped along to a song unconsciously, or remembered all the words to an old childhood tune, you’ve experienced the power music can have in evoking deep, internal memories.
As we age, getting around can become more difficult, while some might opt to continue driving, many older adults decide to stop driving or give up their license for a variety of reasons - be it visibility, mobility issues, disabilities, or simply not wanting to deal with the upkeep and cost of a vehicle and the responsibilities that come with it.
But just because they no longer drive doesn’t mean they don’t want to be able to get around with ease. Ensuring our residents feel a strong sense of independence and freedom is important to us at Pacifica, and a core part of the services that we offer in our communities.
