Empowering Hope Garden Court at Hawthorne Village of Ocala specializes in the treatment of Alzheimer’s patients through proactive programming aimed at anticipating problems and intervening before the escalation of any issues. We consider all residents residing on Garden Court as individuals with unique needs and interests and through an individual, “activity/ability” based program we strive to effectively meet these needs and interests.
Our staff is specifically trained in this concept of “ability/activity” based programming with the outcome of providing an environment for minimizing the negative effects of the Alzheimer’s disease process. The intent of Garden Court is to provide consistency through a well trained and committed staff resulting in a safe environment conducive to reducing anxiety and confusion for the people we serve.
While skills diminish, the resident’s desire to excel does not, and programming is designed to allow their success through emphasizing their strengths while at the same time maintaining their dignity. It’s not about what they're no longer able to do, but rather what they still can.
