Vivid Living® at New Perspective

Everyone can expect to experience cognitive changes as we age. In fact, beginning as early as our twenties adults will start a slow cognitive decline. The pace and depth of this decline is different for everyone. But, perhaps you’ve noticed your loved one is experiencing difficulties with memory, language, thinking and judgment that are greater than the normal age-related changes, but they don’t show other symptoms of dementia. Often this is diagnosed as Mild Cognitive Disorder (MCI). If that describes your loved one, we’d like to introduce to you Vivid Living at New Perspective.

Vivid Living is a neighborhood within New Perspective that has been developed to specifically meet the needs of those coping with the effects of MCI. The individualized goals of Vivid Living are to help each resident move through the day with gentle cuing and the application of our 4-Pillars to make every effort to stave off the disease’s progression.

What makes Vivid Living so special is the Life Engagement Coach (LEC) who moves through the day with a small group of residents. The day starts with the LEC personally reviewing the daily calendar of events and activities and continues as the LEC engages and cues the resident in all that life at New Perspective has to offer. Not only does the LEC help coordinate each resident’s day, but they typically participate in the activities right alongside the residents, as well.

We also know a safe and secure environment is important. That’s why we created Vivid Living as a calming setting where 24/7/365 help and support is just footsteps away.

4 Pillars and Vivid Living

Physical Fitness

Exercise keeps our bodies fit and produces neurons. And, neurons help our brain work better. Residents get their bodies moving with appropriate exercises multiple times each day. It helps the brain and the appetite.

Brain Fitness

Our brain is a muscle that can get weak, flabby and out of shape. Residents participate in memory-stimulating, group activities and computer exercises several times a day to awaken their memories and engage in life.


Scientists believe social activity and engagement is vital to slow the advancement of memory-related issues. We engage our residents in topical discussions and group activities that probe the recesses of their memories to help them engage socially.


Dining in Vivid Living is a social event. As a group, our residents enjoy a tasty, balanced diet of favorites in a beautiful, home-like atmosphere.
