Memory Care

Willow Glen is our memory care unit, designed for our Residents who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia that need a more secure living area and specialized care.  Our memory care area provides a dining room for our residents to have their meals, a large kitchen for any “cooking” activities, a large seating and TV area for entertainment and socialization.

With our Activities Department planning daily calendar of social, recreational and educational programs, that are designed specifically for our memory impaired Residents we strive to keep our residents active and entertained. We have an enclosed garden walking path with a gazebo, outside seating areas and picnic table areas as well as a basketball hoop for those who may want to “shoot hoops “on a sunny and warm summer day.

In order to assist Residents in Willow Glen to locate their home, each room has a color-coded door and a Plexiglas enclosed “memory box” for easy room identification.

All our memory care residents have their own private studio rooms, with a private bathroom.

We encourage families to bring in small keep sake items, or photos as memento’s their loved on will identify with. Secure surroundings and state-of-the-art safety features provide protection for our Residents who can no longer live alone.
