Memory Care

The Preserve at Meridian tempus memory care program logo

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™

A philosophy created by Rachael Wonderlin of Dementia by Day focusing on empowered and positive communication with residents meeting them where they are in time.

Team Member Education & Training

Tempus specific onboarding for staff with ongoing education and training.

Family Education & Communication

Tempus Together family days and the Family Portal offer family and friends ways to stay connected to their loved one and the Tempus team.

Resident Programming

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