Specialized, sensitive care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and age-related dementia
If the time comes, and the difficult decision is made to find a community, with experts and professionals that specialize in providing memory support, Ascension Living is the preeminent choice. Leveraging local expertise, and our national network of ideas, innovators and experience, Ascension Living memory care communities provide a secure, comforting and supportive environment tuned to the needs of our residents. Our programs serve individuals with different strengths as well as the various challenges presented by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Some of our communities are dedicated only to those who need memory support, while other communities have memory support neighborhoods within their long-term care units. Our care partners have advanced training that enables them to respond appropriately to residents’ unique physical, emotional, social and sensory needs.
We subscribe to a philosophy of personalized care, which emphasizes each person’s quality of life, dignity and comfort. It also promotes a continuity of care among team members a resident sees each day, which helps foster an environment of trust and familiarity. Residents are in control of their days, choosing which services they want and when they wish for them to be delivered. And we encourage families to participate in our approach to their loved one’s care.
Within all of our memory support communities you find a variety of services and amenities such as:
- Nursing staff on duty 24/7
- Personalized care plans
- Medication monitoring
- Laundry and housekeeping
- Scheduled transportation
- Family-style dining of three delicious, nutritious meals daily, plus snacks
