Memory Care

Safety and security with a sense of independence

The memory care environment at The Garrison Center allows seniors experiencing memory loss to stay safe and secure, while still maintaining a sense of independence. Security features allow our residents to enjoy indoor and outdoor walking paths, without any worry of wandering off.

 

Meaningful activities for a better quality of life

With person-centered care, activity staff identify preserved capabilities, previous roles, habits, and interests of individuals with memory loss. This allows our staff to appropriately develop activities and care plans customized to the individual resident that are meaningful and enjoyable. Our specialized memory care programming provides activities in an environment that is meaningful, purposeful, and success-oriented. The activities program focuses on meeting the social, physical, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive needs of our residents.
