Memory Care

Exceptional Care for Your Loved One

Our team of exceptional, caring professionals is trained to learn and value the needs and requirements of each individual separately.

Just like anyone else, residents in memory care benefit from a robust program that nourishes the mind, body and spirit. Legacy Place’s fully-licensed and assisted memory care communities are focused firmly on the needs of our residents who experience Alzheimer’s, dementia and other forms of memory loss. We recognize these specific needs and address them in the most compassionate, sensitive and loving way. We strive to provide the utmost care and assistance with all activities of daily living with licensed nurses on staff.

Activities for Memory Care Residents

Activities are offered throughout the day that include group games, conversations, music, art and interaction with pet companions. Individual activities are designed to support remaining skills and strengths – even tasks as simple as brushing teeth or using silverware can be retained with support and encouragement. We also offer music therapy that significantly aids our residents therapeutically and fosters comfort and enjoyment while listening to familiar tunes. Music therapy is one of the most expressive therapies that helps our residents emotionally, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually while improving their overall physical and mental wellness.

Special Living

At Memory Care, we’ve carefully designed special living spaces for our residents to accommodate the level of care they need and deserve. Our supporting environment aids those who are living with cognitive challenges to make their lives easier and rewarding on a daily basis. These spaces include a separate dining room, living room and activity room. We also provide “flex” spaces that allow room to specifically address the interests and requests of residents and their family members. Legacy’s memory care units deliver a familiar, safe and energetic environment to allow our residents to live with comfort, dignity and respect, just as each resident experiences under our roof.

A Typical Day

Legacy Place Memory Care consists of morning group activities or a walk in the courtyard, afternoon activities or entertainment, some time for quiet rest or conversation, individual activities in the evening, group games and conversations, and interaction with our live-in community pets.

It’s extremely important for us to keep our residents in high spirits while helping them focus on sustaining feelings of success, purpose and belonging. Assisting them with daily life skills, physical activity, friendly conversations and brain games help them keep a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle. We are a place of PURPOSE, a place of COMPASSION and a place of JOY.
