Memory Care Neighborhood

Your loved one deserves to have a rich, meaningful day, every day, and that will always be our goal. Our staff is carefully selected and specially trained to support each person with care, compassion, and respect. Our memory experts and community teams work closely together to adapt and personalize our therapeutic programs and whole brain fitness lifestyle to create engaging, purposeful days for residents in our Memory Care Neighborhood.

Recently, we heard from a daughter, whose mother had just moved from our Circle of Friends program to our secured Memory Care Neighborhood. She wanted to tell us that, though she didn’t expect it to be, that move was one of the best things that could have happened for her mom. Her mother’s dementia had progressed and she was finding it difficult to keep up with her peers, harder to get around the community and to interact socially with those around her. Once she moved to our Neighborhood, things became easier for her again. According to her daughter, she regained some of her independence. The smaller, self-contained area looks like the community she’s used to, but it’s easier to navigate, so she’s more confident. She still enjoys dining with friends, spending time outside, and participating in enriching activities like music therapy and exercise classes. The difference is, they’re tailored to fit her needs now. Adapted to her strengths and abilities, so that she can continue to be successful, in her way.

Her daughter said, “Like most of the family members here, I was fearful of taking that next step – through those doors – with my mom. What I learned was that by accepting where she needed to be, we both got something back.”
