I Visited This Facility

The Memory Center was beautiful, but the room was much smaller than my mother's room, and it's more money. The place was amazing, the menu looked fantastic, and there seemed like there was a lot to do. There was a movie theater and a small store and arts and crafts activities going on when I was there. The things they had available were amazing. The staff was very professional.

Very sincere staff members offering residents an engaging atmosphere of openness and engagement. Staff members ask residents questions about their day-to-day living and are open to suggestion. Variety of activities within the facility and residents are often found interactive with their environment. High staff to patient ratio offering an opportunity for all residents to be attended to and residents are provided accommodations. Newer facility with up-to-date renovations and great community. Employees deliver exceptional care and residents are often given attentiveness and interaction.

Description of The Memory Center

_______________________________________________

The Memory Center exists to assist persons living with memory challenges by reducing the frustrations and agitations that usually accompany memory loss. Along with providing a safe and secure sense of home our programs focus on promoting an enhanced quality of life for individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Our state-of-the-art design is optimized to enhance the quality of life for all of our residents. The small town street welcomes residents with a town center featuring a movie theater, general store, bank, library, beauty salon, tavern and ice cream stand along with replicas of historical icons familiar to our residents. All residential wings open to the town center area.

Our therapeutic program "Memories & Motion" is grounded in Montessori-based principles of respect, dignity, independence and choice. Specialized programming includes activities in an environment that is success-oriented, failure free, purposeful and meaningful.

We provide a unique dietary program with a team of culinary associates to include: dementia-friendly menus to help prevent weight loss and selections that appealing to senses and easy to manage.

Operationally, all staff are trained in dementia care and the Resident Services Director specializes in geriatric care. Our managers and key staff members are Certified Dementia Practitioners (CDP), a credential that recognizes the highest standard in Alzheimer's and Dementia education. An in-house physician with expertise in dementia and Alzheimer's will assist with care tailored to best meet the needs of residents and families.

We believe the challenging conditions of the aging brain should be met with a caring, interactive community designed around the individual. The Memory Center offers every incentive to celebrate life and find purpose each and every day.
