Resources for Individuals Facing Memory Loss

Below, I’ve outlined some specialized programs designed for individuals with memory loss,  Alzheimer’s and dementia. Each program and service are focused on meeting an individual’s cognitive, social, and emotional needs.

Memory Cafés

Memory Cafés provide a place for people with memory loss and their loved ones to come together and connect. It’s an opportunity for families and friends to meet and share, as well as individuals facing memory loss to connect with each other.

Music & Memory

Walker Methodist became a MUSIC & MEMORY℠ Certified Organization in 2014, and many of our memory care Residents have thrived within the program. The program brings access to personalized music as a way of enriching the lives of individuals with memory loss.

Memory Journal Walker MethodistMemory Journal

The importance of creating spaces and methods for sharing memories and experiences, whether it be with loved ones, friends, or acquaintances, is so important. To help those conversations along, we created a memory journal that’s filled with questions and prompts, and it’s free to download.

Each individual with memory loss receives personalized support. We realize everyone is different in their needs, preferences, and beliefs. Walker Methodist customizes all of our services to the individual, not just the diagnosis.

Candace joined the Walker Methodist family in 2014.On a day-to-day business, Candace focuses on families and quality assurance - most particularly in Highview Hills Care Suites and Memory Care neighborhoods. She takes, solves, and responds to resident and family concerns as well as coaches, mentors, and supports Walker Methodist staff. Some of this process is through Memory Care training, but also on a one-to-one basis. At this community, Candace also oversees the Aromatherapy and Music and Memory programs and is the champion for the Struthers Parkinson's Network. Candace is extremely passionate about working with the Alzheimer's Association, particularly getting people together to understand the important of education and support. Candace chose healthcare because she knew she needed to work in a field that was about more than just money. Once she got in to it, she realized that Walker Methodist was the only place that she could leave at the end of the day and name something she did to support others. The ability to give back daily and Walker Methodist's mission is why she is passionate about her work.
