Frequently asked questions.
What is a person-centered approach in memory care?
Person-centered care in dementia is focused on the individual rather than the condition. It centers around the philosophy that each person is unique — with his or her own history, values and personality — and deserving of dignity and respect. In person-centered memory care, team members get to know each resident as an individual and seek to understand their personal characteristics and needs.

Residents live in a warm and friendly, family-like community with the safety of 24-hour onsite security and the compassionate care of highly trained personnel who implement proven memory care programs that encourage and celebrate remaining abilities. It would be virtually impossible to duplicate this level of round-the-clock safety, sense of community and socialization, and specific expertise in Alzheimer’s care by using an in-home care service.

Each member of our memory care team is trained in the specialized skills needed to provide excellent Alzheimer’s care and dementia care.
