The transition to memory care can be one of the most difficult decisions a family makes. Our compassionate team is committed to helping seniors not only get the physical care they need—but also enjoy the highest possible quality of life. Read more about our approach to memory care.
At The Gardens, our memory care services emphasize safety and quality of life. We provide around-the-clock care and supervision in a secure environment. We recognize each individual will be affected differently with memory loss, so we offer an individualized program in a stimulating atmosphere. Our memory care services are all-inclusive, which means we don’t charge additional level of care fees even as your needs increase.
Our compassionate staff works with each resident and family 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.
Walk into our Memory Care, and you may see a resident petting a dog or cat, enjoying the scent of flowers in our secure garden, or singing a familiar tune. Senses of touch, smell, and rhythm remain strong as memories fade. Our team members continually tap these senses to soothe and connect with residents.
Upon arrival, our 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. We tailor care to meet each individual’s symptoms, recognizing every individual will be affected differently with memory loss. Our highly trained team—including around-the-clock nurse supervision—tends to all our residents’ needs, from medication management to physical wellness. We update this plan regularly, or as a resident’s health changes.
Our private studios (with bath) are located in our friendly neighborhood setting. We also offer memory care companion suites that create meaningful social connection between residents, and create affordable access to high-quality care. It’s proven that residents with memory loss better maintain cognitive function, language skills, and a healthy routine with consistent social interaction.
Our community features a comfortable lounge, family-style dining and vibrant living spaces. The beautifully landscaped grounds provide a secure outdoor setting with continuous walking paths in a tranquil setting.
At The Gardens, we have adopted Teepa Snow’s outcome-based approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care. With a focus on communication and the value of personal connections, our goal is to improve the quality of life for everyone — our residents and their families.
