Memory Care Center
Located on the Lakes Campus, the Memory Care Center will boast seven acres of secure space to tend to the mind, body, and spirit of Residents living with dementia and their caregivers. The Memory Care Center will comprise two primary components: The Commons building, often referred to as Main Street or the Town Center; and out skirted Households, often referred to as the suburbs. Unlike traditional models, Residents who call the Memory Center home will be able to roam the secure campus as they please, exercising their autonomy and holding their dignity to the highest of standards.
With emphasis on normalizing dementia and reducing stigma, the design and programming of the Memory Care Center will focus on creating a supportive and welcoming environment for all. Amenities will foster independence and encourage the highest level of functioning for those living with memory loss. Design features to aid in wayfinding, technology, and other safeguards will ensure that Memory Care Center Residents are safe and will not be able to leave the secure zone without a Team Member or family member. Naturally lit spaces will help to reset circadian rhythms and minimize confusion. Calming, communal areas will be inviting to friends and family as they spend quality time with their loved ones. Dedicated assessment, education, and training centers will help enable a transformation in the way care is provided to those living with dementia.
The Memory Care Center will operate as a person-centered Assisted Living community and will employ an above-average staffing ratio. Adapting the environment to promote clarity, integration, and sensory engagement will provide an unequivocal dimension of support. Each component of this Center will expose the exponential benefits to be felt by Residents, caregivers, and the broader community. This is the future of Memory Care.
