Folkston is the “Gateway to the Okefenokee” which is part of the National Park System. Okefenokee is a Native American word which means “Land of Trembling Earth”.
Okefenokee Lane is a 30 bed safe and therapeutic environment which promotes the independence, comfort and security of every resident diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related dementia. Our team of experts provides knowledge and compassion to assist not only our resident’s but their family members as well.
Credentialing has been received from the Second Wind Dreams Organization which has provided the Virtual Dementia tour for caregivers to provide a detailed experience of what it’s like to walk in the shoes of a patient suffering from Dementia. Okefenokee Lane also features its own designated Dining Room, Activities Room and Outside Courtyard for the relaxation and enjoyment of our residents.
An Activities Hallmark of Okefenokee Lane is the Music and Memories program which was detailed in the “Alive Inside” documentary. The benefits of offering a formal music therapy program includes: promotes wellness and immunity, alleviates pain, helps to express feelings, enhances physical rehabilitation, manages stress, boosts memory and improves communication and mood.
Pathways to Active Living (PALs) is Beacon’s therapeutic activity experience for residents that reside in our facilities. We believe that every person has the right to enjoy and participate in life to his/her fullest potential, as independently as possible, optimizing the capabilities and skills he/she possesses.
The PALs program was created with the belief that each resident is composed of physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual components. Recreation, leisure and interests are inherent to human nature and appropriately designed therapeutic recreation will facilitate a balanced life and general health and wellness for each individual, no matter one’s age or abilities.
