“DAWN OF A NEW DAY.” Eskaton’s new Memory Care program advocates a comparatively unique principle and practice in its care of older adults with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Focus on today and tomorrow, on making new memories. Even if they are fleeting. Residents are encouraged to be forward thinking – to appreciate the present and anticipate the future.
And all the wonderful past memories, their intrinsic value is embraced as well. They generate smiles and respect and empathy and, perhaps most importantly, are used by caregivers to help residents navigate their fogginess and frustrations. Live each new day to its fullest, with dignity and self-worth … carpe diem.
How appropriate that translated from Greek, the name “Eskaton” means “dawn of a new day.”
