Daily Programming

Meaningful Programming

At English Rose Suites, we embrace the special uniqueness and one-of-a-kind individuality of each resident. Our vision is to change the landscape of memory care for individuals living with dementia and other cognitive impairments by improving and maintaining their quality of life. We deliver an unsurpassed level of tender loving care that enhances lives and encourages friendships to form between our caregivers and our residents. Each individual’s dementia journey is different, and our person and relationship centered approach to memory care allows us to focus on the physical, occupational, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual wellness of each of our residents and their loved ones.

Our activity calendar programs and meaningful daily engagement are customizable based off each individual’s life story.

Meaningful Programming Includes:
  • Daily household activities like making a portion of a meal, helping with laundry, filling bird feeders or working in the garden spaces.
  • Dynamic community involvement opportunities. These include trips to the neighborhood golf course, pools, parks, nature centers, museums, trips to the lake, theaters and many more.
  • Weekly visits to Montessori schools and partnerships with neighborhood schools that promote interaction and engagement with young people.
  • Dinner parties, birthday parties, anniversaries, seasonal and religious holiday celebrations.
  • Music including; Music therapy, musical entertainment, sing-a-longs, personalized iPod playlists along with the use of musical instruments.
  • Physical activities that include customized walking programs throughout the year designed to help support the individual with their personal fitness goals, seated exercises, ROM and PROM all done daily.
  • Personal care such as curling/setting hair daily, shaving, applying make-up and manicures/pedicures. When you look good you feel good.

Keeping Up with Technology

At English Rose Suites we know the importance of keeping up with technology.  Our care homes in Edina, MN are set up to stream music so that each resident’s favorite music is right at their fingertips.

We also have a wonderful, highly interactive computer system that has been researched and specifically designed for use for persons living with memory impairment and physical limitations. With It’s Never 2 Late the residents can explore the world traveling to places they’ve never been or revisiting favorite trips they have already experienced. They can also express their spirituality through music, prayers and sermons. iN2L helps staff access many different religions so the care staff can support everyone. iN2L also allows residents, staff and families to interact through trivia, music, games, exercise and so much more.

iN2L’s goal is to reach people wherever they are, especially individuals living with dementia. We love to show families how their loved ones still have the ability to stay engaged with music, with spirituality, with content meaningful for them. It has nothing to do with dementia, or even with aging, we all are thirsty to stay connected and relevant, the breadth of iN2L experiences allows that to happen. We’re honored to be a part of English Rose Suites programming.
