Combining Skilled Nursing with Memory Care

A nursing home or general assisted living facility is not usually equipped to provide care for residents with memory disorders. Caring for a patient with memory problems requires significant patient supervision, and a large facility with a small staff does not have the resources to ensure every patient’s safety. This is why it is important to find a skilled nursing facility that has a dedicated memory care program.

Our memory care program maintains a high staff-to-patient ratio. We go to great lengths to ensure every resident is looked after by compassionate and trusted professionals who are committed to helping patients. Family members and loved ones are encouraged to visit during appropriate hours, and our staff is always happy to answer questions about a resident’s wellbeing.

Holistic Care Approach

Witnessing a loved one develop the symptoms of dementia is not easy. We know that people want the best for their loved ones, which is why we use a holistic care model focused on mind, body, and spirit. Our facility provides many services designed to help residents feel comfortable and at ease in new surroundings.

Moving into a memory care facility can be frightening at first. We encourage families to tour our facilities before making a decision so they can help ease the transition for their loved one should they decide to entrust their care with us.
