New Journeys Memory Care neighborhoods.
Bright Oaks Memory Care is so different we gave it a special name—New Journeys—because every day is a self-fulfilling new journey for each Family Member.
Our New Journeys neighborhoods are designed to keep their members active and social through evidence-based approaches, including music, art, interaction, and other forms of neurocognitive stimulation that encourages the brain to continue working hard. Our environments are designed to bring calmness by reducing confusion and managing compound stimulations that may result in agitation and discontent.
Our Extended Family Members are all trained and certified to work with the daily challenges our New Journeys Family Members may face and to help them achieve serenity and a peace of mind.
New Journeys Memory Care Activities.
Our New Journeys Activity Program encompasses the 7 Dimensions of Wellness: Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, Environmental, and Vocational. We include specialized therapeutic programs such as Animal Assisted Therapy, Art Therapy, Music Therapy and Aromatherapy in to our monthly activity programs.

A typical day is comprised of a morning intellectual, physical, and social program, an afternoon emotional, social, and intellectual program, and an evening social, spiritual, or physical program. Time is allocated for small and large group activities, individual leisure pursuits, and 1:1 engagement programs.
As a family, we experience and live life as it happens by talking and interacting, learning about each other, playing games, going on bus outings, celebrating birthdays and holidays, doing light housekeeping tasks, and just being together.
