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.
Our trained Tempus team provides personalized support to help reduce anxieties and encourage meaningful engagement. Activities are purposefully designed for those living with dementia to foster a greater sense of community and belonging.
Resident life at The Claiborne focuses on whole-person wellness through a robust life enrichment program which offers fitness and exercise programs, entertainment, education.
We focus on bringing people together, connecting residents with what interests and fulfills them. Our community uses a technology system called iN2L to help provide experiences for our residents to share conversations, interactions, learning and fun with each other, their caregivers, and family members.
iN2L is easy to use and requires no computer experience. Simply touch a picture on the screen to begin enjoying fun activities.

Sermons, hymns, and inspirational videos are a few of the options iN2L offers to nurture spirituality.
Activities like trivia, quizzes, games, and puzzles in iN2L are designed to be both entertaining and exercise the mind. iN2L also includes noted brain fitness programs such as Happy Neuron.
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.
More than 1 in 4 people, 65 and older, fall each year
Engaging programming meets our residents where they are physically and emotionally with a tactile and personal approach.
