The Care You Want. The Help You Need.

Our residents will receive the highest-quality care at MacKenzie Place, which is tailored to them through Opal – our innovative memory care approach. Opal was designed to encourage residents to live with purpose through holistic treatment. Based on Teepa Snow’s GEM levels and Positive Approach to Care, this treatment of both the body and mind is informed by our 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average stay in a memory care facility?

The average stay in a memory care facility varies widely per individual but is often from a few months to three years, or more.

When should I put my mom in memory care?

It can be difficult to know when to put a mom, or parent, in memory care. However, if a loved one is experiencing a lack of safety or security due to wandering, then it may be the right time to consider a memory care setting. Additionally, home care can be stressful on family members and negatively affect family relationships – another indicator it may be time to move to Fort Collins memory care.

What is the difference between assisted living and memory care?

The difference between assisted living and memory care settings is very slight, as both assist with activities of daily living (ADLs). However, each aspect of memory care, from activities to the design of the community, was created with seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in mind. Memory care is secured to prevent wandering and features dementia-friendly meals and activities in addition to assistance with ADLs.

How do I find the best memory care facility?

You can find the best memory care facility for you and your loved one, by researching the state of Colorado’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Page. We encourage you to visit potential communities, ask questions, and truly find the best care for your loved one.

Is memory care more expensive than assisted living?

Yes, memory care is often more expensive than assisted living because it provides a higher level of care than assisted living.

How many dementia care facilities are there near Fort Collins, Colorado?

There are around 10 memory care facilities near Fort Collins, Colorado. Contact MacKenzie Place – Fort Collins to get pricing and learn more about our innovative approach to dementia care.
