A Wonderful Selection
We understand that every senior has a unique journey. We work to get to know every resident in both our assisted living and memory care communities to ensure they have the care they need to live a healthy, happy life.
For those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, our memory care community provides specialized care from a staff that is continuously trained in handling the unique needs of seniors with memory-related issues. Residents with Alzheimer’s or related memory challenges reside in a supportive environment with familiar surroundings. By helping seniors achieve daily moments of achievement, residents find new meaning and purpose in their daily lives.
Our home-like memory care community has 42 senior apartments include private, studio and companion suites. Our spacious apartments include a 24-hour emergency response system, and private baths.
Our beautiful, one level building provides a home-like atmosphere for our residents. Residents can relax by the fire in the family room, or enjoy a good book in the library. Our secured courtyard is beautifully landscaped with pathways, flower beds, gazebos and benches.
These activities give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another and enjoy each other’s company. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, home cooked meals and off-site excursions. Everything is done for a reason but most especially to give residents a sense of freedom and independence, all within a safe environment over which our staff keeps careful watch.
Our memory care community is truly a home and we are one big happy family. So whether you want to relax in your private apartment or socialize in one of our many common areas, we have a space to fill your needs.
