Special Experiences at Olivenhain
In addition to spiritual activities and live music, we offer two special experiences at Olivenhain:
Celebrate Your Life: Our “Celebrate Your Life” Program focuses on our resident’s lives and memories. Residents can take advantage of a variety of classes, workshops, guest speakers, daily live music, and educational and entertaining videos. We feature cognitive activities that help improve memory and brain function, that include word and picture puzzles, trivia games, and reminiscing about the many experiences they have enjoyed throughout their lives.
Mind, Body, Spirit: This important program focuses on creating an individualized plan for fitness, health, nutrition, and spiritual nourishment. We create our daily activity calendar to ensure that there is an appropriate activity for everyone. Our program includes daily exercise, games that encourage movement and can improve range of motion, and walks through our beautiful gardens, and music therapy.
Spiritual Activities & Live Music
Our spiritual activities include a weekly non-denominational church service, bible studies with volunteers from our community, as well as poetry readings and short stories that are calming and peaceful. People of any faith are free to have their clergy, rabbi, or other spiritual leader come to minister to them.
The importance of music therapy in treating dementia is widely known. We understand its importance in creating positive emotions and memories, calming agitation, stimulating cognitive brain function, helping coordinate motor movements, and fostering recall of special memories and events from their lives.
Our residents enjoy the stimulation of live music seven days a week with a variety of musicians and genres. The residents enjoy our daily dance parties and many sing along, tap their toes, or play percussion instruments! Residents that are engaged in activities and preserve social connections can maintain a high quality of life despite the health challenges they face.
