Clemson Downs Focuses on each Resident’s Unique Needs
Through a commitment to provide excellence in care, we use best-in-class programs, such as the Positive Approach to Care™ taught by nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow. Several of our employees are certified to teach this program that focuses on fundamentals to help care providers better understand those living with dementia so that we can better relate to residents and their families. To learn more about her program, visit www.teepasnow.com. Clemson Downs also partners with Dr. Cheryl Dye, Director of Clemson University’s Institute of Engaged Aging. Dr. Dye and her creative inquiry students work with our residents in Memory Care using aromatherapy, music and images of nature. Clemson Downs also partners with Dr. Stephanie Pangborn, Professor of Health Communication at Clemson University. Dr. Pangborn and her students work with our residents using art and music therapy.
