Thoughtful support

Residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia benefit from a safe environment and thoughtful approach.

Individualized Care

Staff trained in dementia care support the needs of each resident with a focus on clear distinguishable choices throughout the day. We also tailor our care with mood stabilizing lavender-scented towels and aromatherapy diffusers to calm, de-stress and enhance overall mood.

Movement

Research shows that regular exercise for those with dementia or other forms of Alzheimer’s can potentially help limit cognitive decline. Residents enjoy walking, stretching, and games that help maintain flexibility and mobility.

Engagement

Residents experience daily programs that stimulate the senses through music, the arts and exercise along with group outings to stay connected and engaged.

Dining Together

Mealtime is another opportunity for residents to connect with each other. Meals served on vibrantly colored plates help residents see their food more clearly. The Creative Kitchen program activates smell and taste while residents cook alongside culinary staff and reminisce over delicious meals from their past.

Life-Enhancing Design

Secure indoor and outdoor spaces encourage independence, and furniture designed for older people is arranged to promote conversation and connection. Artwork is carefully chosen to invoke a sense of nostalgia and place.

What are memory support apartments like?

Memory support apartments and are designed for comfort, safety, accessibility – and connection. Their smaller floor plan is intentional, to encourage residents to spend time engaging with their neighbors and caregivers, in common spaces. Studio and shared-suite options feature a private bathroom.

How much does memory support cost?

In addition to a monthly apartment rental rate, memory support services are offered at a monthly rate based on the amount and type of services performed. Services are based on estimated time required for service per month and the care team member(s) providing the service (i.e. Licensed Nurse, Care Partner and Medication Technician).
