Ottawa Memory and Dementia CareThree unique memory neighbourhoods
Learning that a loved one has been diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease can be a life changing event and may feel overwhelming, this is why Alavida Lifestyles has focused on ensuring we have exceptional Memory Care. We know the importance of ensuring your loved one remains engaged in life and the community, therefore in all of our Memory Neighbourhoods we have introduced our Healthy Minds Program which empowers all of our residents to live their life as they always have.
Meet our Director of Memory Care & Clinical Services – Maggie Beckett
Maggie is an Ottawa native, growing up in Munster Hamlet. After completing university and teacher’s college in Ottawa and Kingston, Maggie decided to listen to her calling and became a nurse. It was the best decision she made. In her capacity as Director of Memory Care and Clinical Services, Maggie supports the teams at Promenade, Park Place, and Ravines, and develops new ways in which our Memory Care and Assisted Living communities can flourish. Maggie has had the great pleasure in being an active part of each community at Alavida Lifestyles and feels very privileged to share in the rich experiences of the residents, and family and friends that call Alavida home.
When Maggie is not at work, she enjoys reading, walking, and having lots of fun with her wonderful partner and amazing daughter.
Our Healthy Minds Program
Our Healthy Minds Program focuses on and embraces each person’s independence and uniqueness. Our staff are empowered to do this through our relationship centred care model, where knowing each resident allows us to promote wellbeing and focus on strengths to define their quality of life. Our dedicated Director of Memory Care and Clinical Services offers support groups for all of our residents’ loved ones, educating and supporting everyone through the journey of life with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. We believe that our residents are not just living, but meaningfully engaged in their lifestyle where every day has purpose and enhances well-being.
