Memory Care in Gig Harbor, WA
What is Memory Care?
Memory care facilities serve seniors living with dementia, providing long term care as the disease progresses. People with dementia may be able to live in an assisted living community in the earlier stages of the disease, but staff training in memory care units tends to be geared towards a higher level of care. Staff members in memory care facilities are trained to care for older adults with all forms of dementia.

Maintaining Independence for Memory Care Residents
Our memory care program is rooted in a resident-centered approach focused on creating feelings of belonging and purpose for residents. We seek to preserve their dignity and sense of self, and provide comfort and security in a safe, familiar, and stimulating environment. We strive to keep our residents engaged in life mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Independence is key to ensuring happiness and quality of life. Our residents value their independence as it brings with it, dignity, control, self-esteem, and fulfillment.

The Lodge at Mallard's Landing Testimonial
"Perfect fit in Memory Care for my father. I started looking over a year ago and toured many other communities in the Gig Harbor and Tacoma areas multiple times. I kept coming back to The Lodge for Memory Care. The pros are many: nice rooms and public “lodge-like” spaces, patios, good food, regular activities, and easy access for family. While the pricing between communities was similar, the care team and staff at The Lodge made the final decision easy. Everyone has been extremely helpful in making a potentially difficult transition seamless for my father. Dad is enjoying his new home and routine. Whatever level of care you are seeking for yourself or a loved one, I highly recommend considering The Lodge at Mallard’s Landing."
