Our Memory Care program offers a safe environment for seniors with memory challenges. We aim to help maintain each person’s unique sense of self by honoring his or her life experiences. Care is based on Alzheimer’s Association guidelines to create a soothing, tranquil atmosphere that gives residents a sense of comfort, dignity, and well-being in a familiar, home-like setting.
A Safe Haven
Memory care residents live in their own private or semi-private apartment homes with personal walk-in showers and plenty of space to allow families to decorate with cherished items and memorabilia to create all the comforts of home. Staff is trained to get to know each resident on a personal level so that every day is filled with activities that celebrate each resident’s own lifetime achievements, successes, and accomplishments. A custom dining experience for each person is created with individualized assistance to help maintain their independence for as long as possible. Contrast between the color of the plate and color of the food increases the likelihood that the resident will eat more. Small dining rooms and consistent seating encourage familiarity and socialization for a pleasant dining experience. Families are always welcome to join their loved one.
