In the journey of memory care, finding innovative ways to support cognitive health and emotional well-being is essential for the residents at Melody Living in Colorado Springs. Embracing creativity as a cornerstone of their memory care program, Melody Living creates a nurturing environment that encourages self-expression, fosters meaningful connections, and stimulates cognitive abilities.
Art offers an avenue for residents to express themselves when words may elude them. Engaging in various art forms, such as painting, drawing, or crafting, can rekindle memories and emotions, helping residents connect with their past and retain a sense of identity. Our silk flower workshops, “no paint” painting, and adult coloring book sessions are enjoyable creative outlets for our residents to indulge in. Take a look at our monthly calendar to see all we have planned.
Music can hold a unique power in memory care. At Melody Living, dance and music activities not only promote physical health but also enhance cognitive health. Participating in group dances and gentle movements stimulates neural connections and improves memory recall. Our residents love to get their groove on at the weekly “Oldies but Goodies” sing along and dance sessions.
Melody Living integrates cognitive games and puzzles into their activities, offering fun and engaging ways to challenge memory, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. From active games like balloon volleyball and parachute toss to games that focus on cognitive skills and memory exercises, there's fun to be had while continuously promoting occupational wellness for our residents.
Melody Living curates themed celebrations and social gatherings that encourage residents to connect with other residents, friends, and family in a lively and inclusive environment.
