Signature Programs
Helping You Live More Each Day

Hearth Management has developed three exclusive programs dedicated to holistic wellness and serving the needs of our residents. Based on decades of research, data, and experience, these signature programs represent the gold standard of care for seniors of all ages and abilities. 

Live More®
A Person-Centered Approach to Care

The first step in our Live More approach to resident wellness is to get to know you or your loved one on a deep, personal level. This is coupled with an in-depth discovery during which we learn about the resident’s childhood memories, hobbies, family culture, traditions, and even their favorite candy. Why? Because our person-centered care approach focuses on the details that define each individual, so we can engage them in purposeful and meaningful ways.

Through our signature Live More programming, we help residents experience overall wellness and live optimally in these eight areas: Intellectually, Spiritually, Emotionally, Socially, Nutritionally, Physically, Environmentally, and Vocationally.

By getting to know our residents as close personal friends, we also help ensure they play a key role in shaping our community culture. Our residents have input on every service and activity we offer. That’s our Live More philosophy and it’s woven into everyday community life.

Think More®
Maintain & Improve Mental Fitness

Like our bodies, our minds need exercise to be healthy, too. Hearth Management offers residents a variety of ways to keep their cognitive muscles moving. Our Think More program is specifically designed to challenge residents’ cognitive abilities through small group activities and discussions that stimulate six essential cognitive domains: short-term memory, long-term memory, language, computation, visuospatial understanding, and critical thinking.

Hearth Management hosts a minimum of two Think More activities per week. Some are structured with specific challenges, like puzzles, word games, or trivia. Others focus on intellectual discussions on topics such as science, medicine, world history, or politics. Join one of our engaging, structured brain exercise groups to learn more while maintaining – and even improving – your mental fitness.

The Mosher-Gardens Method®
Holistic Memory Care

The Mosher-Gardens Method, Hearth Management’s signature approach to Memory Care, is a holistic program supporting those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. By providing your loved one with one-on-one psychological, physical, and emotional care, we are able to meet them where they are in each of these areas throughout the day. This increases your loved one’s comfort and confidence, while reducing the anxiety that often accompanies a memory loss illness. 

Pillars of The Mosher-Gardens Method include maintaining consistent daily schedules and rhythms, integrating large and small group activities, and alternating between active and passive activities. This provides reassuring stability, and helps ensure every resident gets the opportunity to participate and stay engaged without becoming too tired or overwhelmed.

A dementia disease can be very disorienting, causing fear, frustration, and irritability due to the uncertainty and perceived lack of control a person feels. The Mosher-Gardens Method helps break down this sensory overload into more easily manageable pieces. At the same time, we provide residents with a safe and comforting environment in which they can process what they are experiencing. 

Exercise is also a crucial element to The Mosher-Gardens Method. Active engagement opportunities like chair exercises, mini golf, Wii games, and stretching exercises have a positive effect on muscle and bone mass, and heart health. They also play a large role in a resident’s energy levels and overall mood. By staying active, our Memory Care residents experience improved balance, better sleep patterns, and increased appetite, helping them age more successfully and experience better outcomes.

Move More®
Maintain & Improve Mobility

At Hearth Management, we believe mobility is an essential element of our residents’ overall wellness. Often, seniors come to us with a sedentary lifestyle, rooted in watching TV for a large portion of the day – either out of convenience, fear of falls or injuries, or frustration that they’re not able to “move like they used to.”

Our Move More program makes movement more fun and accessible to all residents. Through walking clubs, chair yoga, Tai Chi, dancing, and daily fitness classes, residents are encouraged to explore a full range of cardiovascular and strength training exercises in a safe, controlled environment.

In addition to group activities, residents are encouraged to use NuStep cross-trainers to build their strength, stamina, and vitality. NuStep trainers are specifically made for seniors with mobility limitations, balance issues, or cognitive decline, and are available in every Hearth community.
