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
Safety, of course, comes first. Built specifically for residents with dementia, including Alzheimer’s, our building is protected by secured entrances and exits. We also have enclosed walking areas so our residents can feel a sense of independence as we strive to help them explore the outdoor gardening area, courtyard and the rest of their surroundings in a secured environment. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.
A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
We provide you with multiple floor plans so you can help your family member choose the one that will make them feel most comfortable, ranging from a cozy one-bedroom studio to an apartment with its own sitting area and kitchen. No matter which you pick, you can rest knowing each one has an abundance of natural light and wall-to-wall carpeting. Plus, we’re a pet-friendly community and encourage your family member to bring their pet with them for comfort and happiness.
Consistent Care Assignments
We all crave independence, but sometimes we need a little extra help. But who says your loved one should have to choose between the two? Unlike a traditional nursing home, we try to give your family member as much independence as they can maintain without sacrificing quality care in the process. We provide consistent care assignments so that your loved one is cared for by the same associates whenever possible. This builds person-centered partnerships and encourages familiarity. Here, your family member will receive the support they need to maintain their health and cognitive functions.
Each resident in our care is a unique individual with a diverse range of interests, which is why we tailor our daily activities to match the things they are most interested in. With a minimum of six activities per day, your family member will enjoy a gentle daily structure in a routine that provides a sense of security and familiarity. This routine, also known as the Clare Bridge daily path, is an evidence-based approach that helps our residents maintain their abilities and provides a sense of security and accomplishment.
Personalized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on creating feelings of belonging and purpose for your loved one while seeking to preserve their identity and sense of self. In our care model, we build relationships with trust, loving concern and a connection to family. But it's more than just a care approach. Our residents also benefit from our specialized environment and attentive staff to support them at all stages of the disease.

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.
