About Safe Haven Memory Care
Our Personalized Approach to Memory Care
The Safe Haven Happiness Program is specifically designed to improve the care and overall quality of life for those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our approach balances the science of medicine with the art of human interaction while embracing the needs of each unique individual in a secure community setting. We devise fully customized care plans for each resident which reflects their past, acknowledges the present, and foresees a future of escalating need. Our philosophy of “living in the moment” creates a life filled with daily pleasures and joyful experiences.
We can’t wait to introduce you to our warm, inviting memory care community at The Gardens at Park Balboa in Van Nuys, CA. Schedule your personal tour today.
Responding to Your Needs
By understanding the unique needs of your loved one, we are able to create a personalized program that preserves their dignity and encourages daily calm and pleasure within a nurturing atmosphere. While helping reduce depression and anxiety, our programs reflect our belief that life with memory impairment is best lived in a series of comforting and pleasurable experiences. Instead of expecting residents to adapt to a rigid structure, our happiness program responds to the needs of our residents so they receive the care they need when they need it.
We provide physical activities designed to help increase cardiovascular health, maintain muscle strength, and flexibility.
We provide purpose through meaningful activities which relate to life skills, careers, hobbies, and volunteer experience.
We foster a familiar sense of belonging by learning the pleasure triggers and positive associations of our residents.
We indulge in the little things which bring our resident's such joy, like pleasing foods, soothing touch, and their favorite music.
We encourage engagement and stimulation from the natural world through a variety of outdoor activities, like walks through nature and BBQ cookouts.
We connect and engage with our residents through touch, smiling, waving, and pleasant interactions to mitigate stress and appease sensitivities.
We host dances, outings, parties, and other social events which build community and help forge meaningful connections among staff and residents.
We support the spiritual views of our residents and their families, celebrating the higher power of each day simply by enjoying life’s offerings.
