Various health-related services, such as comprehensive physical, occupational and speech therapy, are available on-site.

Helping to keep the memories alive

The Stratford developed the Passages program to provide residents with fun and interesting mind stimulating activities, as well as promote a feeling of accomplishment.

Passages is a unique program designed specifically for residents with varying stages of dementia, but who are not ready for a secured memory care environment. Residents benefit from the structured programming created with the goal of increasing mental stimulation, building self-esteem and confidence, and relieving anxiety while building a sense of family and community.

Therapeutic activities, integrated with our other Vibrant Life Programs, are the focus of Passages. Highly structured programs serve as a pattern to stimulate activities of daily living. Combinations of small and large group gatherings, alternated with one-on-one encounters are designed to provide success and encourage participation.

The importance of a small group setting is to provide each individual with the opportunity to increase the participant’s independence and form close interpersonal relationships.

Residents who are involved in the program will be happier, more relaxed and more confident allowing a comfortable integration into larger Vibrant Life groups as well as enjoy a smaller, more comfortable setting they can call their own.

Dining by Design

The Stratford Features the ALFA Award Winning Dining by Design Program

The Stratford understands that social interaction, eating habits and overall well-being are enhanced by a dining experience that is filled with good food, good conversation and an inviting atmosphere. With this in mind, we incorporated the award winning Dining by Design program.

From signature dishes created with fresh, nutritional food choices, to exemplary customer service, residents and their guests look forward to time spent in the beautifully appointed dining room here at The Stratford.

This program is based on Integral Senior Living’s Dining by Design program, which won the Assisted Living Federation of America’s (ALFA) 2010 prestigious “Best of the Best” award, establishing the program as one of best culinary practices in the country.
