  • Dementia Care Specialists

    Dementia Care Specialists

    Many of our staff have been certified through the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI)’s Dementia Care Specialist Program. This specialized training allows the memory care team to demonstrate an understanding of dementia and its impact on cognitive function.

    Trained staff can identify key care approaches for each stage of the disease in order to promote the highest possible level of function in activities of daily living (ADL), mobility, and leisure activity. The staff also learned strategies to enhance communication, minimize negative behaviors, and support families.

  • Transitional Care

    Transitional Care

    Many of our campuses offer the opportunity for transitional care where your loved ones can move between the clinically appropriate level they need while staying within the same campus they're familiar with.

    For instance, if your loved one is in assisted living and is given a diagnosed of a Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, they may have an opportunity to move to either skilled or assisted living memory care within the same campus. This type of inter-community transition makes it easier and less intimidating for patients who need a change in their level of care. 

  • Music and Memory Partner

    Music and Memory Partner

    A few of our facilities have partnered with the Music and Memory™ initiative. This program uses music therapy to rehabilitate and enhance psychological, physical, cognitive, and the social functioning of our residents. Music & Memory™ helps to bring joy back into the lives of individuals suffering from a wide range of physical and cognitive impairments, including Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.

    Benefits of  Music and Memory™ include:
    • Individuals who have been silent or catatonic may begin to respond to conversation and adapt to socialization.
    • Individuals are calmer and less agitated
    • Sun-downing is often reduced or eliminated
    • Residents are able to connect with family and staff in a more meaningful way

    Please inquire with individual facilities to see if this program is offered.

Frequently Asked Questions

Memory Care is a specialized type of service where the resident's stay is catered specifically to those with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. Memory Care units are typically secured to offer family members peace of mind and residents the safety and security they deserve. 

It might be time to consider memory care when a family can no longer safely care for a loved one with some form of dementia.  Often times, these loved ones have been diagnosed by a physician to have some form of dementia and may be at risk of injury or wandering due to their condition. The decision to choose memory care can be very tough for families. We recommend talking to a physician, social worker, or other qualified personnel regarding options for your loved one. Please feel free to call any of our facilities offering memory care to talk to one of our specialized staff members. 

Our Life Enrichment Teams offer a wide array of activities for memory care residents. The type and length of any activity largely depends on the residents within the unit and who is participating. Our teams work very carefully to develop life enrichment programs that are clinically appropriate for everyone staying with us.

Testimonials

When caring for my mother with Alzheimer's became too much I was pleased to find Anchor Lodge. We did a tour and felt very comfortable knowing that she would be taken care of. The activities are always really fun!
