Memory Care

What is Memory Care?

  • A secure area designated within an Assisted Living Community that specializes in the care for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.
  • Memory Care Programs provide one-on-one attention with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), as well as warm and inviting environments that facilitate reminiscing, comfort and familiarity. Memory Care residents are provided the same amenities as Assisted Living residents and much more!

What is the philosophy behind Memory Care?

Our Memory Care philosophy is to “Embrace Every Moment.” We meet each resident where they are at in their dementia journey. This means specialized assistance, programming, daily offerings and more. From our dining experience, to our apartment design, we’ve thought of it all. Ask us about our busy baskets, life stations and music therapy program!

How is Memory Care regulated?

Regulations and licensure requirements vary from state to state, contributing to a wide range of senior housing models that are considered memory care specific.

Iowa law requires assisted living/memory care programs to be certified and monitored by the Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA).

Further information on certification can be obtained from Department of Elder Affairs at 515-242-3338 or 800-532-3213.
