Uniquely created to meet the challenges that come with cognitive decline, memory care offers residents the chance to meaningfully engage with peers throughout the day, maintain a routine schedule that provides comfort, and interact with team members who are specially trained in best practices of dementia care. Communities provide around-the-clock caregiver assistance that is personalized to each resident’s needs and preferences. In addition, residents enjoy vibrant social programming and delicious meals served alongside friends. Family members and friends are always welcome to visit and participate in programs or events with their loved ones.


Our Approach to Memory Care: Evergreen Neighborhoods

Breakfast among friends at Arbor

We’ve thoughtfully created each Evergreen memory care neighborhood to be a place where residents and team members are comfortable, safe, and engaged. From the design of our hallways and enclosed courtyards to our carefully planned programs and events, residents are given every opportunity to live life to the fullest and feel their best.

Breakfast among friends at Arbor

Life in a memory care community changes based on the residents who live there. However, the community’s schedule includes routines that residents would naturally be doing during their daily activities. Mornings begin with the smell of freshly brewed coffee, personalized support from a caregiver who is there to help with wake-up care, and breakfast served beside friends. Then it’s time to catch up on the news, enjoy time outside in the garden, and maybe squeeze in a fitness class. Lunch with friends is followed by the opportunity to have an afternoon picnic in a local park or to help out with a cooking demonstration. After dinner, residents might attend a live concert in the living room before receiving support with evening care. Residents feel right at home — because they are.

Transitioning into Memory Care

Transitioning into Memory Care

An estimated 6.5 million older Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease

and more are living with other types of dementia. A dementia diagnosis can mean more than just memory loss, and it affects more than just the individual. Receiving a dementia diagnosis impacts that person’s entire family and community, and everyone wants the best and safest environment for the person living with the condition. 

At our Evergreen memory care neighborhoods, we work closely with new residents and their family members to make the transition a smooth one. The transition process begins long before move-in day, with community team members communicating with loved ones in order to make move-in day easier. Our team makes sure everyone is on the same page as we get to know the new resident and provides updates when their needs change. Family members and residents are also welcome to schedule visits to attend meals or activities prior to the move in order to help ease the transition into the community.
