Valeo Signature Programs

Signature programs for enriched, healthy living.

Every person’s life experiences and needs are unique, so our programs are adapted to the individual. We assess each resident’s interests and abilities, then build a personalized approach to create moments of joy.

Each resident’s legacy and passions are honored through our Valeo™ Signature Programs, which increase awareness, cognition and engagement; stimulate pleasant long-term memories; provide joy and pleasure; and decrease anxiety and agitation.

Respecting legacy is the core of Valeo. Our signature programs at our assisted living and memory care community in Tampa tap into the individual’s past and call upon and preserve their memories – not only for the individual, but for the entire family.

We believe that life can continue to be fulfilling and engaging for individuals with memory impairments such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our programs respect the passions and experience of residents and we develop this programming around their hobbies and interests.

Some of our Valeo Signature Programs include:

Create and ComposeDementia Care Tampa FL Programs
Art and music draw you away from daily concerns and take you on a journey of self-expression while helping you relive fond memories. Neurological research also shows that creating art and listening to music can improve cognitive function, helping the brain actively compensate for changes in function that are often associated with aging and memory impairments. Art also helps you relax, reduces anxiety, provides socialization and fosters a strong sense of identity. In this program, that capitalizes on the therapeutic benefits of art, you’ll enjoy painting, drawing and sculpture and will both listen to and play music.

Legacy KitAlzheimer's Disease & Dementia Care Hillsborough County FL Programs
You and your family create a treasure chest of specific items that are familiar and meaningful and reflect aspects of your identity. The items may have specific historical relevance to your life experiences, represent special interests or be associated with important people or life events. The kit and its contents provide a catalyst for fun and meaningful interactions, connects you to your past and creates special moments of reminiscence that can be used to enhance your quality of life in the present. Legacy Kits are used by both caregivers and family members on an ongoing basis to foster positive interactions and active engagement.

Alzheimer's Disease Westchase FL near Tampa ProgramsTravel Times
The very act of getting away — physically or even mentally — relaxes the mind, renews the soul and opens us up to new opportunities and ways of seeing. Facilitating the travel experience for individuals who have been diagnosed with dementia often provides pleasure, connection and intellectual stimulation while triggering memories and offering an escape from the day-to-day.

Creature ComfortsTampa FL Dementia Care Programming
There’s no denying the bond between humans and animals. While providing a tactile experience, pets also offer therapeutic benefits including comfort, enjoyment and socialization. Research shows that bonding with animals can lead to improvements in health such as lower blood pressure and rates of heart disease, reduced stress and even decreased anxiety and depression.

Creature Comforts is a pet program that brings gentle animals into the community — whether dog, cat, bird, fish, amphibian or reptile — to interact with residents. It’s also a perfect time for residents to show pictures of past pets or recall memories of their own animal experiences — all in the name of creating a positive impact on the physical, social, intellectual and spiritual well-being of each person.

VITA!Dementia Care Westchase FL near Tampa Programs
Routines provide daily structure and a sense of purpose to those with memory impairments. VITA! turns seemingly routine everyday tasks into enjoyable experiences by making them a pleasant, memorable action. Led by Homestead at Hamilton’s wellness team, VITA! programs may include trivia, brain teasers, singing songs, meaningful conversation and exercise, all while paying attention to self-care. The result is that daily “to-do’s” become moments of joy, creating positive moods and enhancing quality of life. For residents living with dementia and other memory impairments, VITA! practices help to calm and bring a sense of peace and focus to the activity of the moment by creating a pleasant event that improves both physical and cognitive function. Taking time to be fully engaged and mindfully present for the basic tasks of each day is important not only for the individual but also for team members.

“One day at a time—this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”

― Ida Scott Taylor McKinney
