Tempus: The Claiborne's Signature Dementia (Memory) Care Program
Tempus is The Claiborne’s dynamic and engaging approach to providing care for our residents living with dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term for several diseases affecting memory, other cognitive abilities and behavior, such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, etc…. The name Tempus is Latin for time. Individuals living with dementia often live in their own reality, on their own timeline. In Tempus, that’s where we will meet them.
Our trained Tempus team provides personalized support to help reduce anxieties and encourage meaningful engagement. Activities are purposefully designed for those living with dementia to foster a greater sense of community and belonging.
Proactive Care Aided by Predictive Analytics
You might think that falls, ER visits and hospitalizations are an unexpected, inevitable result of getting older. You might think it’s especially true for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. But the truth is that many of these events are frequently predictable and avoidable. Changes in the way you walk or how you sleep may indicate an increased risk of illness or injury. With the right access to detailed, accurate and timely information, we can see what’s happening sooner and take steps to prevent a potentially tragic event from occurring.
At The Claiborne at Gulfport Highlands, we use an innovative predictive analytics solution as part of our memory care program to help us proactively manage and anticipate residents’ needs. Without ever touching or compromising a resident’s privacy, we can continuously monitor more than 30 factors to determine early on if someone is at risk for a fall or illness. They include:
- Heart rate
- Respiratory rate
- Bed Restlessness
By collecting and reviewing this data on a continuing basis, we can identify someone’s risk for certain types of illnesses or potential events and make changes in a resident’s care or environment to reduce those risks. And if something does occur, our technology enables us to better understand the circumstances and determine how to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Responding when something bad happens is important, but wouldn’t you rather prevent it from happening in the first place? We would, and that’s what we’re aiming for—because that’s what’s best for our residents.
