Our memory care services balance safety with social activities and quality of life. We provide specialized programs to strengthen connections and maintain life skills, as well as intensive care and supervision 24 hours a day. We recognize memory loss affects everyone differently, so we offer an individualized program in a stimulating atmosphere to make all of our residents feel cared for and comfortable.
Personal Care Plan
Upon move-in, a Health Services Director meets with new residents and families to develop a personal care plan, which includes an assessment of the resident’s physical and psychological needs, as well as personal preferences for care. We tailor care to meet each individual’s symptoms, recognizing every individual will be affected differently with memory loss. Our highly trained teams—including around-the-clock licensed nurse supervision—tend to all our residents’ needs, from medication management to physical wellness. We update this plan regularly, or as a resident’s health changes.
Our compassionate staff works with each resident and family to provide life-enriching programs, and to create an environment where residents can succeed and thrive while maintaining as much familiarity as possible. Small accomplishments, such as working on a memory book, baking, or even making a bed, can be highly therapeutic and encouraging.
Power of Pets, Music, & Scents
Walk into one of our Memory Care neighborhoods, and you may see a resident petting a dog or cat, washing their hands with a warm lavender-scented cloth, or singing a familiar tune around the piano. Senses of touch, scent, and rhythm remain strong as memories fade. Our team members continually tap these senses to soothe and connect with residents.
Our communities feature comfortable lounges, family-style dining and vibrant living spaces to socialize or relax and connect. Well-groomed grounds provide a secure outdoor setting with continuous walking paths to take in the tranquil scenery.

Our Approach to Memory Care
The transition to memory care can be one of the most difficult decisions a family makes. We recognize the challenges families face and strive to provide an environment where seniors not only get the physical daily care they need—but also enjoy the highest possible quality of life.
Seniors in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia may be most comfortable in our assisted living communities, which offer autonomy and independence backed by a strong safety net of care. Personal assistance such as medication management or arranging medical appointments can help structure the resident’s day, while the vibrant social connections can help stave off memory loss and keep the mind sharp.
As Alzheimer’s progresses, our memory care communities offer an advanced level of care, with care partners to supervise and monitor 24 hours a day. As a faith-based organization, we value service above all else, which means our compassionate team is here to serve our residents and their families with the transition.
Support as Needs Progress
We know that keeping residents physically and socially active can often slow the progression of Alzheimer’s or dementia, and ease its effects. To help manage anxiety, wandering, and sundowner’s syndrome, our care partners personalize their approach to each resident. Some examples include:
- Secure courtyard and walking paths
- Warm lavender hand and face washes in the evenings to calm before bedtime
- Resident sing-alongs to connect through songs they’ve known for decades
- Pet therapy for residents who wander
- Multi-sensory Snoezelen Lounge offering soothing sounds, low lighting, scents, and water features to calm and relax
- Musical performances to engage non-verbal residents
- Scenic drives to enjoy sunshine and improve sleep patterns
Additionally, our communities offer a variety of enriching activities, life-skill areas, social settings, and wellness programs specifically designed to care for and support individuals with dementia and their families.
Our Health Services Director meets with new residents and their families to develop an individualized care plan, which includes an assessment of the resident’s physical and psychological needs, as well as personal likes and dislikes. This plan is reviewed regularly and updated as needs progress.
