Our Memory Lane Program

Memory Lane is a special care program within our assisted living facility specifically designed for those living with some form of memory loss. Although compassionate care is highly valued in all of our assisted living communities, it’s especially emphasized with our memory care units. We strive to go beyond the daily routine of providing meals and medication for our memory care community—we provide emotional support through creating meaningful connections and a living environment where our residents feel encouraged and dignified.

 

Alzheimer’s care is part of the second level of care in our Memory Lane program, which provides additional assistance to residents who are in more advanced stages of the disease and need help with three or more activities of daily living (ADLs). Memory loss, such as dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease, can be a real challenge for residents, and they may need additional personal care, support groups, or other medical care. Our staff members have special training to provide Alzheimer’s care options and meet the needs of people living in our memory care community. We work hard to provide an environment where those living with Alzheimer’s can get the support they need while living in an environment that stimulates them.
