Meet the Cherrywood Pointe of Roseville Dimensions Manager

We are proud to offer Ebenezer’s Dimension ProgramĀ® to residents and family members in our Cherrywood Pointe communities. This exclusive program stresses the importance of understanding the needs of a person with dementia, and trains caregivers to respond to them with compassion and creativity.

The Dimensions Program is designed to ensure that our memory care residents receive exceptional, compassionate care that meets them where they are. Our evidence-based practices include:

  • Wellness: person-centered, relationship-based care with an emphasis on hydration and nutrition for all dementia patients to ensure their comfort and well-being
  • Training: delivering innovative, ongoing hands-on education to our staff
  • Engagement: Fostering purposeful, pleasurable, creative interactions/activities
  • Environment: Creating calm, seeking psychosocial solutions/support
  • Education and Support: Providing education and support to families and care partners

Our Corporate Dimensions Coordinator oversees the multi-faceted program, and a Dimensions Manager implements and champions its principles at each community. Our goal is to make a dramatic difference in the life of your loved one.
