Our Approach

Long-term Memory Care

At Ciela, we embrace a wellness philosophy called Bloom, which is specifically designed to engage individuals with memory impairments in every aspect of their daily lives. This approach is not just a program, but a way of life that prioritizes creating moments of joy through positive interactions and personalized care.

We use relationship-based methods to help loved ones make connections through music, dance, art, food, movement and sensory stimulation.

Thoughtfully designed

Our dedicated memory floors are comfortably-furnished and feature fully-enclosed green spaces that encourage safety and exploration.

Open floor plans have been strategically designed to offer secure yet free movement, with a circadian lighting system that helps regulate residents’ sleep and mood, and a walking loop open to spontaneous exercise.

Socialization & community

Our philosophy is integrated into all aspects of our care and services, ensuring that residents thrive through building relationships with others and growing connections with positive socialization. We believe that respecting legacy is the core of our approach, and our signature programs tap into the individual’s past, preserving their memories not just for themselves, but for their families as well.

Circadian Light Systems

Taking its cues from the rhythms of natural daylight, Circadian lighting creates a sunrise to sunset harmony to coordinate with our own internal clock. Our lighting system at Ciela helps to promote a natural Circadian rhythm in our bodies that regulates our body’s optimal sleep and mood patterns.

Virtual reality

The Virtual Reality Lounge is for all residents. Virtual reality programs especially brighten the lives of residents with dementia, offering a way to “transport” them, virtually, to an exciting destination, such as the wreck of the Titanic, or an African safari.

It also enables them to connect with people and environments across the globe and can help strengthen memory and mind.
