Grandvue’s Namaste Room is an environment where Residents can relax while maintaining the social contact they need and deserve. It is a safe and comforting space for all who enter—Residents, families and staff.
Namaste Care™ provides meaningful activities that bring pleasure to people with advanced dementia and stimulation for all five senses through aromatherapy, nature videos, soothing music, warm blankets, hydration programs and hand and foot massages.
Namaste means “honoring the spirit within” and responds to the basic human need to be touched with compassion, to be present with others and to be loved. Namaste Care™ was developed by Joyce Simard, a geriatric consultant, speaker, author and adjunct professor, and has been available at Grandvue since 2012.
