Memory Care

Each senior in our care has a unique life story, which is very important to how we care for him or her.

The Impact of Socialization

Studies show that socialization has a positive impact on seniors and can reduce, even prevent the signs of depression. So, each resident's Daily Routine consists of their own combination of therapeutic and positive stimulation, including expressive arts, exercise, nutrition, reminiscing, cognitive activities, and social engagement with peers, staff, and families.
