Why Memory Care?

When it comes to senior living options, it’s important to understand the distinctions between Memory Care and other types of communities. While some retirement communities may have residents living with dementia, true Memory Care communities are designed with their specific needs in mind. From the layout and design of the community to the specialized training and expertise of the staff, everything about Memory Care is tailored to the unique needs of residents living with memory loss. While it may be tempting to assume that all senior communities are created equal, nothing could be farther from the truth when it comes to Memory Care.

How is a Memory Care community different?

At Mill View Memory Care, we understand that memory impairments can affect every aspect of a person’s life, including their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. That’s why our Memory Care community is designed to provide specialized support that goes beyond just addressing the mental and physical effects of dementia.

We recognize that caring for a loved one with memory loss can be challenging, especially when communication becomes difficult. Simple tasks, like having a conversation, can quickly become frustrating when a loved one struggles to remember important details.

We believe that everyone deserves the freedom to be themselves, and our Memory Care community is dedicated to providing a safe, welcoming environment that allows our residents to be just that. Our compassionate staff members are specially trained to provide the support and care that our residents need, without judgment or shame. We strive to create a sense of dignity and purpose for each resident, regardless of their unique needs or challenges.
