Find Peace and Independence in Memory Care at Wingate

Find Peace and Independence in Memory Care at Wingate

We are all defined uniquely by the people, places, and experiences that we encounter throughout our lives. That is why our primary goal at Wingate is to encourage residents to continue living their lives to the fullest. We work diligently to celebrate their individuality through personalized care plans that incorporate each person’s values, passions, social circumstances, and lifestyles. Programming at Wingate is person-centric and is designed to improve quality of life and to ensure that safety and security are provided to everyone.

Wingate recognizes the considerable gap between assisted living and traditional memory care and offers two unique memory care programs, The Terrace and The Neighborhood. Having two unique care levels allow for our team to better provide for residents as they progress through the various stages of cognitive decline, offering the level of independence they deserve.

The Terrace is individualized for residents in the beginning stages of memory loss, providing programs and activities that are both challenging and engaging for residents in earlier stages of cognitive decline. Residents living in The Terrace may require cueing and supervision, as well as a structured environment to maximize success.

The Neighborhood is designed for residents who have progressed beyond the early stages of cognitive decline. Wingate places emphasis on the dignity and confidence of every resident while assisting with daily living routines and providing them with intellectually stimulating activities in social and individual settings.

Every Wingate community follows its signature memory care program (3 W’s), which focuses on a holistic approach to caring for the whole person, by providing each resident with intellectual stimulation, movement, and spirituality. Wingate Wisdom provides residents with purposeful activities to stimulate the mind, offers avenues for memory recall, and encourages both engagement and socialization amongst residents. Wingate Wellness provides exercise and movement to our residents, that promotes strength, fall prevention, and independence. Wingate Warmth nurtures the soul and provides activities tailored to the individual needs of residents and their families. Families are an integral part of our culture, and we believe they should always be included in our plans of care.

It’s Never Too Late is one of the phenomenal programs that residents experience while living in either The Terrace or The Neighborhood. iN2L, or It’s Never Too Late, promotes person-centered programming to spark healthy thinking with content designed to improve memory, attention, language, and executive and visual-spatial brain function. This technology is used to engage residents using tools that support and encourage healthy, happy, and calm emotional well-being. Using familiar internet and communication applications, residents can easily connect with each other, employees, and family members. iN2L encourages movement and activity through videos and activities ideal for fun, exercise, or therapy.

Wingate has two unique senior living communities on the East Side of Providence; Wingate Residences on Blackstone Boulevard (located on the Butler Campus, neighboring Laurelmead) and Wingate Residences on the East Side (neighboring the East Side Marketplace, walking distance from Wayland Square.) Both communities offer enhanced independent living, assisted living, and memory care options. We invite you to join us for a complimentary luncheon at either community, whether you are ready to move, or are just curious to see what’s out there!
