Memory Support

More people than ever before are experiencing memory loss. And for many families, that means another family member, or several, are caring for their loved one. That’s why Ascension Living developed this program to help support all of you.

Memory support is more than care, it’s a partnership. We will look to you to share stories about your loved one so we can develop a personalized support program that’s right for them. Within our Memory Support neighborhoods, our residents may experience the familiar smells of favorite dishes and fresh laundry and more to help make them feel more comfortable. 

We are currently expanding upon our Memory Support program by adding in more personalized services, amenities and advanced associate training. These new additions will help us continue to deliver the right care and support for your loved one, including their unique physical, emotional, social and sensory needs.
