The care of our residents is our highest priority, and every aspect of our St. Charles memory care community was designed with seniors with dementia in mind.

Wellness-Focused Memory Care Near Saint Charles

Each resident at The Landing of O’Fallon in Saint Charles will receive care that is personalized just for them, through our holistic memory care program – Opal. Named after Teepa Snow’s GEM levels, Opal is a unique stone with varying hues and depths, as unique as our memory care residents themselves. We encourage every resident to continue to live meaningfully through Opal, which focuses on treating each individual resident holistically and providing comprehensive wellness. The support we provide to residents is informed by seven pillars of care:

Our signature PrimeFit program focuses on the unique physical abilities of each resident in both group and private sessions. We take into consideration the preferences and life story of our residents to create active moments throughout the day.

From scenic drives and themed dinners to holiday events and excursions, we ensure our residents feel included in society and maintain important social connections.

By providing a range of activities like picnics in the park, nature preserves, or live music at the community, our residents have the opportunity to experience the very things that have had importance to them their entire lives while also cultivating new experiences and interests.

Because spirituality means different things to different people, we draw from the life story of our residents to provide daily opportunities to practice meaningful spirituality in ways that are important to each resident.

Activities that elicit expression and provide sensory stimulation, like drawing, clay sculpting, or flower arranging are just a few of the ways residents can express themselves creatively each and every day.

Our goal is to offer daily opportunities for residents to complete tasks with a purpose. We find that tasks, like watering plants or helping the staff, become quite meaningful for residents.

We know that individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia often experience and express themselves through the five senses. The Opal program provides daily opportunities for our residents to positively interact in our community through what they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.
