Lifestyle as individual as our residents.
Our secure Life Enrichment Memory Care community is designed specifically for those living with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, providing a spacious, comfortable setting for worry-free days.
To create a soothing environment and minimize confusion and frustration, every detail from décor to physical layout is designed for the specialized needs of those living with dementia. The physical layout, beginning at the front door of our secure neighborhood and extending to the parlor and kitchen, mirror a homelike configuration on a larger scale. Wide hallways connect in our central living area. Our open floor plan common areas provide just the right level of privacy and separation for residents to remain engaged and connected.
A secure outdoor courtyard is available for residents to enjoy time feeding the birds, gardening, socializing, and many other activities. We focus on regular routines and build programming around resident interests and skill levels.
Homelike apartments, each with bathroom and shower, are also designed to minimize confusion. Residents bring their own furniture and accessories to maintain a connection with the lives they’ve led.
Compassionate Care Team
Our staffing ratio is based on the Alzheimer’s Association recommendations for a special care residence, and our entire staff is trained in the habilitation approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care, joining residents within their reality for more successful interactions. Dedicated, consistent staffing provides 24-hour support with a licensed nurse on duty around the clock. Compassionate personal care assistance promotes quality of life with dignity and respect, and we treat our residents as part of our family.
Life Enrichment Memory Care Activities
The key to life enrichment is offering the best in every day. Meaningful activities help residents make connections with the world around them and maintain the abilities they still have. We find that familiar everyday activities make a great foundation, so we focus on what our residents enjoy doing and what used to be part of their regular routine – whether it’s organizing paperwork, playing checkers, or making music.
We carry that same level of flexibility into our program scheduling, with activities available day or night to accommodate residents’ needs. Our spacious Life Enrichment Memory Care neighborhood offers residents many options for engaging in activities or finding a quiet space. Our enclosed courtyard is a popular place for enjoying nature.
We follow the habilitation approach to memory care, joining residents within their reality and offering familiar activities to encourage engagement and interaction. Activities are available seven days a week according to residents’ preferences and personal habits.

Life Enrichment Memory Care Dining
For our memory care residents, mealtime is much more than a time to refuel. It’s an opportunity to bolster self-esteem and provide nutrition, enjoyment and success. For those with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss and dementia, dining poses multiple challenges – from confusion, to disinterest, to difficulty with functional ability.
We keep things simple to encourage success, with our care team facilitating mealtime socialization and modeling appropriate behavior. Finger foods are options for those no longer able to use utensils, and food and beverages are available all day when formal mealtimes are not realistic.
Above all, as with all aspects of our Life Enrichment Memory Program, we assist residents within their current capabilities, showing them the utmost dignity and respect.
