Care in Full Bloom: The Tender Rose Approach to Dementia Care

Unlike traditional home care agencies that work with all types of health issues and patient populations, Tender Rose was created to solve a different problem. We work exclusively with dementia patients, specializing in challenging cases and patients who need a lot of care over longer periods of time.  

We started by using the Alzheimer’s Association’s best practice guidelines to person-centered, activity-based care at home. This approach engages dementia patients in activities that help them feel happy and fulfilled, while distracting them from thoughts that trigger anger, anxiety, or despair. Our approach, called “Care in Full Bloom”, has evolved over time to include best practices learned from the Lewy Body Dementia Association, the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, leading clinicians and experience with our own clients.

Every Day Can Be a Good Day with Care in Full Bloom

By using our Care in Full Bloom approach to delivering person-centered, activity-based care, Tender Rose is able to improve moods and quality of life for your loved one. 

To provide meaningful, individualized care for clients, our Memory Care Professionals focus on creating activities that engage their abilities in six key areas:

  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Nutritional
  • Intellectual
  • Spiritual

Using this approach to
person-centered, activity-based care,
our Memory Care Professionals can
assure almost every day will be
a good one because it is filled with joy,
dignity and meaning for your loved one.

 

Social

Our MCPs ensure your loved one has the opportunity to socialize, providing them with a true sense of remaining connected to life.

Emotional

Our MCPs will help your loved one experience strong positive emotions–such as love, joy and serenity–by engaging in activities like reminiscing, enjoying I Love Lucy reruns or watching a Giants game.

Physical

Whether the goal is to recover from an injury, burn nervous energy or sleep better at night, our MCPs will engage your loved one in activities such as physical therapy, walking in the neighborhood or dancing.

Nutritional

Your loved one may still be able to shop at the Farmer's Market or help plan a creative meal. Our MCPs offer choices that foster a sense of independence while cooking healthy foods that stimulate the appetite.

Intellectual

Our MCPs will tap into your loved one's passions (e.g., history, art, bird watching) through activities such as reading, attending lectures, and conducting research together on the internet.

Spiritual

Attending a religious service, walking in nature or visiting a museum, our MCPs focus on spiritual activities that replenish the soul.
