Our memory care is broken up into small, intimate neighborhoods so that each resident can be focused on more directly. This creates for a more personal environment where the residents are able to receive more direct care and attention. In addition, it is less overwhelming and more comforting--whereas being in a large dining area with multiple people could be a bit distracting and overstimulating.

Through scheduled care conferences & open communication with staff. We find it important for our staff to build a relationship with the family members and loved ones of our residents so those individuals can feel comfortable coming to us and asking questions about their loved one(s) when necessary.
