ApexCare® is proud to announce and offer Specialty Programs to our clients. We are constantly looking for opportunities to improve and enhance the day-to-day lives or our clients and their families. Below is a brief summary of the various Specialty Programs that we believe can bring joy and enrichment to our clients’ lives:
Music and Memory is a specialized program where our care recipients listen to personalized music playlists created with input from family, friends, caregivers and our staff. The goal of this program is to revive positive memories that are triggered by familiar music, which brings joy to our care recipients and has a positive impact on their overall health and well-being. These playlists are loaded onto an iPod so our care recipients can connect with the music they love in the comfort of their home. The Music & Memory program will become part of our client’s Plan of Care.
Conscious or therapeutic touch was first developed in the 1970’s as a non-medical complementary method to help individuals with physical and mental pain and suffering. Conscious Touch is a simple methodology of using human contact to bring comfort and relaxation to all individuals. Many of us take for granted the importance of the physical contact we have with our family and friends. Older adults are especially at risk of losing the day-to-day human contact that most of us experience every day due to our active lifestyles. We believe that the Conscious Touch program can be a positive force in the lives of our older adults.
Fit-Band training is a form of strength training using elastic bands that is slow, controlled, and safe. Studies have shown that regular resistance training can help improve muscle strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and range of motion. At the same time, this type of exercise helps fight bone loss and can potentially ease the symptoms of arthritis. ApexCare created our Fit-Band program to help our clients counter the natural effects of aging and to stay stronger and healthier for as long as possible. We have witnessed extremely positive results from our current clients and believe that Fit-Band can provide greater enrichment to the lives our clients.
Beremebered.com is an online service designed for families to document the important milestones and events in their lives. With beremembered.com, your loved one can record all of the wonderful stories and images that they would like to have shared with their family and future generations. Our goal at ApexCare® is to be a catalyst for starting the process of recording stories and information on beremembered.com. We believe there is a significant value to our clients and their families for having their loved ones’ history and wishes clearly recorded and documented.
We are always searching for opportunities to bring and offer new innovative Specialty Programs to our clients. If you have any ideas or suggestions for additional value-added programs, please do not hesitate to let us know.
