The Fountains at Canterbury’s Thrive Memory Care program is based on over 30 years of experience delivering outstanding care and innovative programming in an encouraging, residential environment. Every resident brings a unique life experience to our community and we incorporate their personal background, preferences and needs into the daily fabric of our program. We challenge traditional assumptions about what is possible and we always focus on what residents can do, never what they cannot.
Nurturing Environment – Days filled with the things you look forward to and enjoy.
We create “like home” memory care neighborhoods that are comfortable and familiar. Our residents are surrounded by wonderful aromas from delicious meals, music, laughter, family members, fresh flowers, natural light, children, pets, the changing of the seasons and reminders of things to look forward to today, tomorrow and beyond. We fill the days with favorite pastimes and make sure to create plenty of meaningful moments.
Dining for the Soul – Favorite Foods with Good Friends
Beyond nutritious and delicious, meals are times to gather, connect and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Old favorites and interesting new delights are always on the menu and with Gourmet Bites, those same choices come in attractively served, bite-size portions to make meal times even more enjoyable. Our Pantry Program even provides residents personal space to store favorite items like mint Milano cookies or tomato bisque, so comfort foods are always close at hand.
Engaging Programming – Grow and Connect in Meaningful Ways
We pour our hearts and souls into creating meaningful ways for residents of The Gardens to learn, grow and connect with each other, themselves, their families and our associates. We use a wide variety of approaches, depending on the individual, the hour and the day. Expressive Arts uses music, art and movement to tap into all forms of creativity for an alternative form of communication beyond words. We skillfully address Physical Wellness with traditional fitness classes, to innovative offerings such as Positive Moves and Guided Meditation. Our physical fitness programs are tailored to residents’ abilities, preferences and needs. We utilize Life Histories to celebrate past occupations, preferred hobbies and treasured talents. Through Watermark University we encourage residents, associates, family members and local experts to share their interests in classes like The Artist Within, Chair Yoga, Five Decades of Music and Baseball 101, to name a few. These are but a few of the approaches we use to help residents thrive, one joyful moment at a time.
