Specialised support for memory impairment

Freedom Morayfield provides a specialised memory support program to assist residents living with dementia.

Designed to meet the changing needs of residents, the program is focused on providing daily support through meaningful activities and social interaction.

Wendy, Freedom Morayfield’s Care Manager and the person who oversees the program, says it’s all about helping to improve independence and quality of life.

“People living with dementia can often feel very isolated. Our program is all about creating safe, nurturing and social environments that encourage independence, confidence and quality of life.”

Adopting widely successful memory support techniques, support is tailored to each individual’s interests and strengths to help build personal connections and encourage independence.

This support is delivered through meaningful activities and is typically provided within the community’s designated dementia sanctuary.

“At Freedom Morayfield, we have what’s known as a memory node, which is a dedicated area where we provide purposeful activities designed to encourage mental stimulation.

“Many of these activities are simple things like seated exercises, throwing games, or gardening, but the idea behind completing them is to support previously mastered motor skill activities. This has been shown to aid in stimulating the mind, and enable the person to continue to complete activities of daily living for longer.”

Wendy says the program has been incredibly successful in supporting those residents living with dementia.

“You can really see how it has improved their quality of life and boosted their self-confidence. It’s such a great feeling to know that we can make a difference, particularly for those residents and their families who do find it difficult to cope.”
