The town has four memory care facilities to provide a safe, comfortable home for seniors with Alzheimer's, Huntington's disease or advanced forms of Parkinson's who need full-time care and help following a regular treatment plan.
Staff at these sites often help seniors with dementia through physical and mental therapy, as well as assisting with activities of daily living, such as hygiene and personal care.
