Incorporating the latest and most advanced research and techniques, our Memory Care Community is designed to have a home-like feel to create comfort and familiarity while maintaining a safe, social and secure environment.
From secure entry doors and soothing colors throughout to outdoor patio areas and walking paths, our residents’ safety, physical and psychological needs are our primary concern.
Our individualized care approach ensures that each resident maintains his or her physical and mental well-being. The program is based on the social model of care, which maximizes the functional independence of each resident by capitalizing on their individual interests.
A range of activities are scheduled throughout the day and tailored to each resident’s past history and lifestyle to emphasize normal life events and promote independence.
