Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Memory care is specialized care for people living with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and other forms of memory loss. Communities specializing in memory care will typically feature safe and secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. Programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities, while also getting to enjoy passions and hobbies. Staff typically are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss.

Our staff here at North Pointe Care Center understand the challenges that face families dealing with these cognitive ailments and the need for continued support and assistance.
