Why is Moments Manor Orleans Different?
At Moments Manor Orleans, we are renowned for our leadership and expertise in the field of Memory Care (Alzheimer’s and other dementias). We are proud to be the only Ottawa community completely dedicated to the care of seniors with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Our environment is uniquely designed as a safe and comfortable home, and our staff are expertly trained in the field of Memory Care.
The Symphony Moments® Memory Care Program is very different from other more clinical programs that are offered elsewhere. At its core, our Moments® program places a very high importance on the intrinsic social needs of our residents:
- The need for companionship and understanding
- The need to belong to a social group of peers
- The need to be an active participant in their lives through decision-making and participation in meaningful activities throughout the day
We believe that all people should be treated with respect and dignity, no matter what their abilities. At Moments Manor Orleans, we care for our residents as if they were our own parents, offering compassion and love to those who live with us and peace of mind for their family members. Caregivers are available for our residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Staffing levels are determined by the number of residents and their care needs. The higher the numbers, the more staff we put in place. This is a unique care model that ensures we can meet the needs of our residents.
Moments Manor Orleans is also very different because we strongly encourage families and friends to be part of the circle of care. There are events and activities that welcome family members as participants and education is provided about Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This knowledge can help the whole family not only understand disease symptoms and progression, but also learn how to cope with the disease's impact on their own lives. We help families understand the disease and how they can continue to make meaningful connections with their loved ones, without frustration.
