Opening November 2017
A Fresh Approach to Memory CareMemory Care Facilities that Put People First
The person-centered approach: That’s what makes every Poet’s Walk memory care location one of the premier memory care facilities in the country. We believe in holistic care that intrigues the mind, moves the body and inspires the spirit. The result is a positive community of residents and caretakers focused on quality living.
Our state-of-the-art facilities offer indoor and outdoor settings for hobbies, recreation and quality time with loved ones. Private apartment options give individuals an independent lifestyle, while nursing is available on a 24-hour basis.
The Care Flowers philosophy in our Spring Cottage Memory Care Environment is a successful communication tool for care partners and family members. These designations help everyone have the best possible interactions with residents as they are in the present. It is an especially useful tool so family members can understand how to approach and interact when their loved one is acting in unfamiliar ways. The Care Flower system consciously avoids negative language or overtones throughout the residence.
Residents are identified as a rose, daisy, iris, violet, or morning glory based on their unique characteristics, preferences and abilities. This approach is centered on every individual’s abilities, emotions and cognitive capacities—not their impairments or disease.
