I am interested in living in your community, where should I begin?
How is it determined when a resident needs to move from Assisted Living to Memory Care?
Our Assisted Living nursing team will recommend when Memory Care is appropriate. When the resident needs a specialized, safe and secure care environment due to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, we will assess them and then meet with the resident and family to discuss the options that Memory Care can provide.Close
What makes Ecumen’s Memory Care different?
Our award-winning Ecumen Awakenings program emphasizes human relationships and non-pharmaceutical remedies. We are driven to help re-awaken many residents whose physical and cognitive abilities have often been masked by an inappropriate use of antipsychotic drugs by exploring alternative care approaches that could provide them a better quality of life.Close
