Many of our Residents need help with their personal care or activities of daily living. With warm smiles, gentle touches and encouraging words, we assist Residents with personal hygiene (bathing, grooming and oral care), dressing, eating, incontinence management and transferring such as moving from seated to standing and getting in and out of bed.
Sequim Memory Care
We understand Family Members of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias go through some of the most difficult challenges in their lives. Experienced and compassionate help is available at Discovery Memory Care. We are dedicated to caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of memory impairments in a nurturing, residential environment.
Providing Comfort and Care
With our innovative Program, we create individualized care and service plans for our Residents with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias. Plans are based on their levels of need—which may increase over time as their needs evolve. Our Memory Care program is managed by a nurse, and our specially trained Team Members are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to provide comfort and security in a safe, familiar and stimulating environment. We also partner with a myriad of health care professionals to help provide the most innovative services for our Residents.
Enriching Residents’ Lives
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. This sound philosophy, life enrichment activities, and partnerships with health care professionals make our Memory Care Communities leaders in the communities we serve. We strive to keep our Residents engaged in life mentally, emotionally and physically. With positive reinforcement and a variety of effective programs, our goal is to enrich their lives.

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. We encourage independence as much as possible as it often creates a sense of achievement and pride in our Residents’ accomplishments. Taking control of certain aspects of their day-to-day tasks can not only lift the mood and outlook of a resident, but can also help improve his or her overall health and well-being.

Encouraging Residents to Thrive
There’s no doubt that dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia can be a difficult journey for Seniors and their Families. As dementia symptoms progress, our goal is to improve our Residents’ sense of well-being by providing emotional support and helping to maintain familiar activities and social contacts. This allows us to provide a nurturing atmosphere in which all Residents are encouraged to thrive—wherever they are in their dementia journey.
