Heartfelt Connection Gold Award

Foulk Living, a full-service, rental continuing care retirement community in Wilmington, Delaware has proudly received the prestigious Gold Level Award for Heartfelt Connections-A Memory Care Program. Heartfelt Connections is a program developed by Life Care Services ®, An LCS ® Company, which manages Foulk Living. The Gold Level Award signifies the senior living community’s commitment to providing the highest level of care and support for residents in memory care.

“We are dedicated to providing outstanding care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. Heartfelt Connections makes a real difference in the lives of these individuals. It celebrates not just who these individuals are, but also who they were and who they can still become,” said Leslie Johnson, executive director of Foulk Living.

Heartfelt Connections is grounded in a person-centered approach for individuals living with dementia. “Through Heartfelt Connections, we provide unique programs and approaches to our residents to help guide them through the journey of memory loss. Helping our residents through this time with love and support is a huge part of what we do,” said Johnson.

She continued, “Fully understanding an individual’s needs is crucial as many residents in memory care may struggle with their ability to communicate effectively. Personalizing our approach to paying attention to body language, facial expressions, and subtle expressions is key to understanding each person. Everyone is different. Heartfelt Connections assists in anticipating and treating their needs.”

The staff in all departments at Foulk Living, including caregiving, nursing, dining, activities, and housekeeping, is trained in and committed to Heartfelt Connections.

Johnson expressed her excitement about receiving the Gold Level Award from LCS, stating, “We are thrilled to be recognized for our dedication. To achieve the Gold Level Award, our team demonstrated excellence in integrating Heartfelt Connections more fully into our community. From environmental modifications to dining approaches, activities and programs, and responses to behavioral expressions, our team has consistently delivered on the LCS promise to enhance opportunities for purposeful living.”

Johnson concluded, “Heartfelt Connections encompasses our core values of bringing loving care to everything we do. Heartfelt Connections is the collaboration of the best research and practices, and our team is proud to be the trusted source of care and expert guides on the journey through memory loss.”
