The Cordwainer in Norwell reimagines how individuals requiring dementia care can live and thrive.

The Learned EnvironmentSM

Our unique dementia therapy programming, The Learned Environment℠, is curated to stimulate the brain while fostering learning through music, art and foreign language.

Details

Art

Art projects can create a sense of accomplishment and purpose and offer residents an opportunity for self-expression. Each day residents will have an opportunity to draw, paint, or participate in crafts – all designed to stimulate creativity, provide therapeutic value, and explore, retain, or spark artistic skills.

Details

Music

It’s been widely studied that music can be therapeutic for individuals living with dementia and may reduce agitation and behavioral challenges. Our curriculum offers opportunities to listen to music or use various instruments to create music as a method to connect, relax, or encourage movement, even after verbal communication becomes difficult. Music can trigger musical memories, allowing our residents to tap into memories they have long forgotten.

Language

For all of us, learning a foreign language exercises your brain, challenges you to concentrate and boosts key problem-solving skills – and studies have found it can delay memory loss. Tapping into this knowledge, our curriculum (and our daily activities), introduce phrases, words, songs, numerals in foreign languages to help stimulate resident brain function.
