Person-centered memory care starts with getting to know each individual, not just the effects of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia — but also the resident’s history, likes, dislikes, and supportive loved ones. Specially trained team members provide support that focuses on and celebrates each resident’s abilities to reduce distress and create fulfilling days. Our tailored resources are designed to help seniors with memory loss live uplifted.
