Our Road Map for Care

They tell us both “what is possible” for the individual and at which dementia stage or level. Secondly, it alerts us to the areas of highest risk in order to reduce the incidence of hospitalization.
From there it provides us with a plethora of information to facilitate maximum performance in activities of daily living (ADL) and mobility. Then, we can choose which activities are best suited for your loved one for memory and mobility so that we can implement them into their daily routines.

Babes in Arms at Ayers
Thanks to the kind donation from Candy Purser of 20 life-like Lee Middleton dolls, Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center has begun a program that we entitled, Babes in Arms. The premise of the program is to allow our residents a chance to enjoy spending time with the dolls. Yes, they know they are dolls but they are so life-like you can’t help wanting to hold them. This contact brings back many memories and warm feelings from the past. Staff encourage the residents to talk about their childhood and when their children were young. It is a way to open communication with our residents.
When the time comes for ending of the group, the dolls are put in a 1960’s doll carriage that was donated by Roger Wiley. The carriage helps us transfer them from place to place. You can imagine the smiles we get from the residents when the carriage arrives for a visit. The Babes in Arms program is bringing a lot of happiness to our residents.
