Memory Care

Memory Care Services in Edwardsville

For our residents and loved ones experiencing a decline in cognitive function due to dementia from diseases such as Alzheimer’s, address their specific needs in our Memory Care Neighborhood, Lakeside. Our Lakeside Memory Care Neighborhood is a safe and secure environment that provides opportunities to flourish and engage in peer-centered activities based on their level of functional ability. We designed our Memory Care Neighborhood to mimic the aesthetic of our assisted living, providing a stress-free transition for residents who move between communities. Our dedicated staff cross-trains between assisted living and memory care, ensuring that residents feel comforted as they recognize friendly faces.

Within memory care, our mission is to focus on what our residents can, will, and might be able to do. We are there every step of the way to make sure they feel connected and encouraged during this often-challenging stage of their life. We focus on bringing attention to memories that bring our residents joy and happiness. As a family-owned and operated living community, the care and compassion we provide to our residents and their families come straight from our personal experiences and extensive training in the various stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Memory Care Accommodations

Our specially designed community, which focuses on socialization and safety, ensures that our residents in memory care feel at home and well taken care of. Our main area features an open floor plan with plenty of comfortable furniture for residents to sit, socialize, and engage in various activities. We know that residents with dementia may experience symptoms of paranoia and loneliness; that’s why each private apartment enters our common area, helping residents feel safe and secure knowing friendly faces surround them. Our protected Lakeside Courtyard offers residents the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and the beauty of nature, with the added security of a fence that ensures senior residents with a tendency to wander stay within the premises.
