Many people are reluctant to allow a family member with dementia to leave home, fearing that changing their environment would create additional hardships. However, research continues to support the idea that people living with dementia can benefit greatly from engagement and community rather than the relative isolation of being homebound.
That Place You Know, LLC®, is a NH State Licensed Program designed to provide life-enriching activities during daytime hours for adults in our area. Hollis, NH resident Krissy Wuerdeman has developed a new concept to provide memory enrichment using Validation techniques in an adult day program setting. She has created a private practice in her home, and is accepting clients who are well-suited to this type of adult care.
Holistic Approach for A Loved One Living with Memory Impairment
By offering a unique, holistic adult day program in a private home setting, That Place You Know provides a very successful and exciting approach to the rapidly growing area of memory enrichment.
Under the direction of Krissy Wuerdeman, one of only a very few individuals in New England who is certified to practice the groundbreaking, therapeutic techniques of the Validation method, our program utilizes a unique, holistic approach that not only includes music as medicine, art therapy and mindful meditation, but also integrates the power of intuitive therapies with Validation techniques. By combining these two effective practices, a more meaningful connection is created allowing for better communication, problem-solving and an overall greater sense of well-being for both clients and their families. This program design is an exciting enhancement to the already effective approach of working with the needs of individuals with memory impairment and their families within a structured and well-rounded activity schedule. Recognizing that each of our clients has his or her own unique story, skill set and purpose to share is what makes our holistic approach so powerful.
