Each caregiver participates in a virtual dementia tour each year. This virtual tour alters the senses of the user to create confusion and disorientation to help them understand what our residents are going through. Combined with monthly training and ongoing professional development, our caregivers are not only experienced but compassionate and caring.

Our staff works to get to know each resident on an individual level. It all starts with the life story, completed by residents or their family members. This tells us about the resident’s life history, where they have lived, their family members, if they have served in the military, and other life facts. Each resident also has a “54 Things About Me” document that is consistently updated by our caregivers as we learn more about your loved one. This document helps us understand what motivates your loved one, how they like to operate, and activities they like or don’t! Our care is truly customized and adapted to meet your loved one where they are and help them live purpose-driven and intentional lives, even as dementia progresses.
