What Our Memory Care Community Can Offer You

Just because someone you love is experiencing memory loss, it doesn't mean that they should have to sacrifice their quality of life. Our residents spend their days in a secure environment, surrounded by familiar people who encourage them to enjoy life, experience feelings of belonging and purpose, and help to maintain their current skills through our daily path of engagement. 

Here are just a few of the ways we help the seniors in our memory care programs make the most of this season of their lives:

A Secure Setting
Because our community is highly specialized for memory care, we don't skimp on the security. You’ll have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency. And our enclosed courtyard and garden are perfect for our green thumbs to remain independent and active. We also have secured entrances and exits. That means you and your family can rest assured that we are here to help our residents feel secure while they live their best life.

A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
We provide warm, welcoming community spaces that feel just like home. From our fireside living room to our comfortable dining room with rich, wood floors, our community provides a great backdrop for a great life. Our memory care specialty also means that we are able to provide particular features that help those with dementia thrive, like circular pathways perfect for secure wandering and personalized home spaces to increase recognition. And our residents choose from two different apartment floor plans, each one customizable to your own personal decorating preference.

Consistent Care Assignments
You and your family can benefit from knowing that we are prepared to address unmet needs and problem-solve behavioral expressions that might arise. We assign the same care partners to your loved one whenever possible to build person-centered partnerships and encourage familiarity. These partnerships are built with trust, loving concern and a sense of family. And our attentive staff handles chores such as laundry and housekeeping, plus medication reminders, bathing, and dressing, too.

Enriching Activities
One of the foundations of our award-winning dementia care program is providing opportunities for our residents to engage with the world around them. That means creative pursuits, staying connected to hobbies both old and new, and engaging in physical, mental and spiritual fitness activities. Residents are offered engagement that provides challenge and stimulation but remains failure-free. Activities include morning mental workouts, jigsaw and crossword puzzles, B-Fit exercise classes, chair dancing, sewing, bingo and hallway golf.


Personalized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

We've never stopped perfecting our memory care programs. Today, residents experience a warm, stable environment filled with life-enriching activities and social connections. Because we’re a specialized facility, we keep our staff up-to-date in the particular needs of those living with dementia. Our residents live life well, surrounded by individuals who don’t just care for them, but know their histories, routines and preferences. This allows care providers to offer your loved one a sense of stability and comfort that they are well known where they live through all stages of the disease.

Common Questions About Memory Care

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who are relatively independent, but they need some assistance with daily tasks, like bathing, dressing and managing medication. Assisted living is ideal for those who are looking to make the most of their retirement by living closer to other people in the same stage of life, while getting access to quality care, great onsite amenities, and interesting activities happening at the community.


Memory care communities are specifically designed for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. They feature safe and secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. You'll also find programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities, while also getting to enjoy passions and hobbies. Staff typically are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss.

Memory care features can vary from location to location. Sometimes they are stand-alone communities, and sometimes they are part of a larger community with more levels of care. They often include safety features like emergency alert systems, enclosed courtyards and keypad entry; personalized programming; easy-to-navigate features like color-coded hallways and spacious hallways; and accommodations for seniors in both the early and late stages of dementia.

As much as we wish there was a cure for Alzheimer’s, the best thing a memory care community can do is provide opportunities for your loved one to maintain or experience improvement in their current skills. Research has shown that living in a community can reduce the amount of medication a resident needs, increase their overall health and wellness with proper nutrition and exercise, and provide increased social interaction that leads to lower levels of depression and isolation.

The cost of memory care depends on several different factors, including location, floor plan and how much care your loved one needs. The good news is that our residents only pay for the services they actually need. 

This is one of those tricky questions that only you can answer. It’s important to do your research before coming to a final decision. But we can tell you that as the disease progresses, the amount of time, energy and resources required to provide quality care will increase. This often creates more stress for the caregiver and could compromise the otherwise high quality of life your loved one could enjoy in a memory care community.

Our communities incorporate several features to help keep your loved one safe, like including emergency alert systems in each apartment. The majority of our communities also have enclosed outdoor courtyards so residents can explore in a secure environment.

Many caregivers think that a private suite is always the better option for their loved one, but research has shown the value of companionship for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. Sharing an apartment with a roommate can sometimes give residents a greater sense of purpose and lead to deep and lasting friendships. Companion suites can also be more budget-friendly!

Most memory care communities provide educational materials and outreach for families exploring senior living options, but you still need to do your research. Consider what specific items are on your wish list, taking into consideration your loved one’s individual needs and any activities, treatments or accommodations that you believe is important.
