Theresa Benamin, LPN
Director of Nursing
Theresa is the Resident Care Coordinator for Daybreak at The Heritage Inn Charlottesville. She brings to us 25+ years’ experience in nursing. Started working as a CNA first in private duty then nursing homes. My love for caring and helping the elderly drove me back to school after raising my 3 children to become an LPN. Theresa was born and raised in upstate New York (Olean) and moved to the Fluvanna County area 17 years ago with her family. Theresa is married and has 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren from Fluvanna county.
Our staff is trained in our state of the art Daybreak program, which has been exclusively developed to deliver the latest research-based care to each resident.
Your loved one's care coordinator meets regularly with our interdisciplinary team to focus on your family member's needs. They will likewise meet with you to provide continuous feedback. We invite you to visit often to participate in social events and care driven activities. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas about your loved one while we assume the responsibility of providing personal care.
Daybreak incorporates clinical, personal and social needs in a supportive, individualized approach delivered seven days a week; 24 hours a day.
Some elements include sensory activities, validation therapy, reminiscence therapy, physical exercise that promote gross motor skills and fine motor skills, social interaction and appropriate engagement through group dining. Research shows that individuals with memory impairment do best when they remain stimulated and their abilities are supported. Our families love our individualized micro-environments, which offer each resident an opportunity to maintain their hobbies and interests at an appropriate level on a regular basis. We take pride in working with each resident to preserve his or her dignity and self esteem at all times.
