By implementing the “Butterfly” Care Home philosophy residents who have a dementia will be seen, listened to and cared for as a person with feelings, memories and a life to be lived. “Butterfly” started in England and is now the methodology of choice for progressive Memory Care homes worldwide.
In Overture Living, the clinical tasks will be in the background. Caregivers will be the center of resident contact and leadership will be constantly engaged with residents. Residents will live in homes of fourteen, each with their own private room, meals will be informal and personal, laughter, tears, joy and happiness will be signs of good living. In Overture Living “Dementia Care” matters, and residents’ happiness will come first.
Overture Living’s Memory Care Services are focused on the individual resident. Our aim is to provide a safe, familiar, yet stimulating and supportive environment. Our team members are trained to value each resident and to recognize their individuality and requirements while respecting their privacy. We know that memory loss affects every person differently, therefore we focus on understanding each individual community member to provide personalized memory care.
Our professional team is dedicated to maintaining the dignity and individuality of every resident, providing them and their families with the support they require.
