Why The Greens?

The outstanding difference at The Greens is our specialization in The Creative Arts Therapies including music, art, dance/movement and drama as essential components to each resident’s plan of care. Many care facilities offer music, art, dance and drama as diversional activities. The Creative Arts Therapies are different because they integrate knowledge of music, art, dance/movement and drama with principles of psychotherapy. As proven approaches, they go beyond an activity and enhance the possibilities of your loved one’s experience and satisfaction.

Though our residents are diagnosed with memory impairment, each is very different in how they journey through it.  We select our care team to recognize those differences based on attentive listening skills and a passionate desire to understand each residents’ context, perception, personal history and how they relate to the whole person.  We are recognized leaders in our community for our excellence in dementia care. As a result, we are making a positive difference in each resident’s life through our individualized care plan.

Our staff, most of whom have been with us over 5 or more years, have extensive experience in managing the complexities of dementia care including challenging behaviors, communication difficulties, visual and spatial impairments, anxiety, depression, isolation, lessening of executive functioning and other issues related to the disease of dementia. Our training and in service education is on-going and represents the latest in innovative care, specifically focusing on creating a better daily life experience for people with dementia.

We understand the challenges created by cognitive issues are a family matter and at The Greens we partner with you in navigating this new world. Your relationship with your loved one has changed so we work together with you to find new connections. In our open smaller environment of care, we work with residents in creating new relationships, making the most of memories and helping you and your loved one create new memories. Involving families and friends in daily activities are integral to our community. The Greens at Greenwich truly provides care that comes from the heart. That is why so many families say, “Thank you so much for caring for my mom. Thank you so much for caring for my dad.”
