Tempus: The Claiborne’s Signature Dementia Care Program

Tempus is The Claiborne’s dynamic and engaging approach to providing care for our residents living with dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term for several diseases affecting memory, other cognitive abilities and behavior, such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, etc…. The name Tempus is Latin for time. Individuals living with dementia often live in their own reality, on their own timeline. In Tempus, that’s where we will meet them.

Program Pillars

Embracing Their Reality™

Team Member Education & Training

Tempus specific onboarding for staff with ongoing education and training.

Family Education & Communication

Resident Programming

Engaging programming meets our residents where they are physically and emotionally with a tactile and personal approach.

    Ensuring Safety of Your Loved Ones

    You might think that falls, ER visits and hospitalizations are an unexpected, inevitable result of getting older. You might think it’s especially true for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. But the truth is that many of these events are frequently predictable and avoidable. Changes in the way you walk or how you sleep may indicate an increased risk of illness or injury. With the right access to detailed, accurate and timely information, we can see what’s happening sooner and take steps to prevent a potentially tragic event from occurring.

    Proactive care improves the safety of your loved ones with predictive analytics including:

    Heart Rate

    Respiratory rate

    Bed Restlessness

    Gait

    Motion

    Activity

    25 %

    More than 1 in 4 people, 65 and older, fall each year
