Hali’a Memory Care

Ease memory loss
with friendship and support

It’s not easy to deal with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, but it can be easier when you’ve got a best friend. That’s because the personal relationships that are crucial for effective dementia care revolve around the essential elements of any true friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust and humor. That’s why we’ve adopted the internationally recognized Best Friends™ method of care that centers on individual strengths and abilities, rooted in your life story.

The Hali’a memory care program focuses on getting to know its residents and honoring each person’s life story. At its core, this approach is based on the understanding that good dementia care begins with acknowledgment of a person’s life story. Your Best Friend will learn your story and use it to make your day, and your care, better. That could involve:

  • Greeting you with a smile and aiding your recognition of others
  • Introducing you to new friends
  • Reminiscing with you
  • Improving your communication with clues and cues
  • Setting up activities that are right for you
  • Recognizing and highlighting your past accomplishments
  • Helping to ease agitation, depression and confusion
  • Keeping up your favorite daily rituals
  • Broadening your circle of caring friends and resources

You may benefit from our Hali’a Memory Care Program if you’re…

  • suffering from memory loss and confusion
  • having difficulties managing medication and other daily tasks
  • needing supervision throughout the day
  • neglecting personal care
  • wandering and having trouble finding your bearings

Lamakū Extended Care

Created to expand
the continuum of care

Lamaku Extended Care services were created to expand the continuum of care within the Assisted Living community. This may be a long term or short-term option for residents. Sometimes a few days in the hospital is just not enough time to recover and rehabilitate before heading home and other times residents decline and just need more care.  Lamaku Extended Care will allow team members at The Plaza to provide care to non-ambulatory residents, including positioning, turning, and monitoring. Families and residents will enjoy the benefits of using the common areas of the Assisted Living community while still receiving the care their loved one needs.

Extended Care Services include the following:

  • Short-term or long-term options
  • Nurses available 24 hours a day
  • Comprehensive therapy and health support services
  • Excellent on-site amenities
