Memory Care Communities
We understand family members of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias are going through some of the most difficult challenges and changes in their life. Our Memory Care Communities are dedicated to caring for people with Alzheimer's disease, and other types of memory impairments. In a nurturing, residential environment, our team members provide programs tailored to the special needs of people with dementia and memory loss.
Many of our programs are directed or overseen by a nurse, and include routine communication with physicians and health care providers to help offer our residents a comprehensive and well-rounded service plan. With dignity and respect, we work to accommodate our residents’ changing needs, maximize their abilities, promote safety, and encourage their independence and freedom of choice.
Enriching Residents’ Lives
In addition to completing state certifications, many of our team members complete the Alzheimer’s Association dementia care certification program that recognizes knowledge of quality dementia care practices. Our resident-centered program, life enrichment activities, and partnerships with health care professionals make Senior Services of America Memory Care Communities leaders in the communities we serve. We strive to keep our residents engaged in life mentally, emotionally and physically. We also encourage our residents’ friends and families to visit and get involved in our Communities. With positive reinforcement and a variety of effective programs, our goal is to enrich their lives.

Our holistic approach in caring for people with dementia is based on eight core components:

- Mental stimulation

A Positive Experience Every Day
We design a service care plan to meet the needs of each individual, and the goal of our nurses, caregivers, and team members is to provide our residents with the best possible customer service that results in a positive experience every day. Our team members are available for help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and provide services based on the level of need — which may increase over time as a resident's needs evolve.

All Residents Encouraged to Thrive
As dementia symptoms progress, our caregivers strive to improve our residents’ sense of well-being by providing emotional support and helping them maintain familiar activities and social contacts. Our caregivers work to refine residents’ care plans based on their increasing challenges associated with later disease stages. This allows us to provide a nurturing atmosphere in which all residents are encouraged to thrive — wherever they are in their dementia journey.
