NEW LEADER, NEW VISION AND CONTINUED EXCELLENCE IN MEMORY CARE SERVICES
Introducing our new National Director of Memory Care & Resident Engagement. Robbin Hendren will serve as lifestyles content expert with our health center, assisted living and memory care programs, enhancing life enrichment and memory care programming. An Ohio University graduate with a degree in therapeutic recreation, Robbin has served for the past 14 years as the corporate recreation consultant for a large senior living company with communities in 26 states.

Robbin is a Certified Dementia Care Specialist Instructor.
People who are cognitively challenged, whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, require an additional level of care and security than those who simply need help with activities of daily living. Memory care residences at Village on the Green will be designed to ensure that residents feel safe and secure. Our program will be structured to build confidence in an environment that promotes choice and celebrates accomplishments.
Our fully trained team members will get to know your loved one — their history, their likes and dislikes, and preferred schedule. This nurturing relationship often improves interactions, helps reduce behavior problems, and can result in a reduction in medication needs.
Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that is severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. This group of symptoms may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form (and cause) of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas. This leads to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually old memories, too.
