The early stages of Alzheimer’s and various forms of dementia can be disorienting. Our memory care unit offers a home-like setting for a small number of residents. The memory care unit offers all the comforts of home with common living areas, kitchen and bathroom facilities. Residents dine family-style, offering opportunities for socialization and story-telling.
The memory care unit is a locked unit. Only staff and the residents’ family and friends visit this area to reduce distractions and discourage over-stimulation that can be disconcerting to Alzheimer’s and dementia residents. The unit is quiet, with no overhead paging or excess noise, to promote a feeling of comfort and serenity.
