The Next Best Thing to Home
When keeping our loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer’s at home is no longer an
option, we believe they should have the next best thing.
Memory Haven was intentionally designed to look, feel, operate and even smell like home.
Unlike home, however, we’ve added a comprehensive menu of included personal care
services to compassionately support those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
At the heart of each of our cottages is a central kitchen, living and dining area where our
residents live their lives, just like they did at home. They can smell each meal as it is prepared,
baked or roasted. They may go to their private bedrooms to sleep, change clothes, use the
bathroom, take a nap or enjoy some alone time, but they live day-to-day in this central
common area. Our residents are not forced to use a community bathroom, but have the
privacy they need. At the same time, they are not isolated in their rooms all day or away from
other members of our household. They live at the heart of our cottages.
Our central common area is also home to our team, where they deliver the kind of
compassionate care and support to our own residents that we would provide to our own family
members. Our higher-than average staff-to-resident ratio, has enabled us to transform the way
memory care is provided. We’re able to get to know each resident, their stories and what
brings them joy.
Regardless of role, all of our team members have the training needed to deliver on the
individual care needs and preferences of each of our residents. This provides the utmost
flexibility and responsiveness in making sure the daily needs of our residents are met. As
a result, the service to our residents is faster because any member of the team can take
care of the residents’ needs, whether personal care, activity assistance, laundry, food
preparation or housekeeping.
“One of my favorite things about Memory Haven is that it’s a warm and
welcoming place and feels like home. The staff are incredible and seem to
truly care for all the residents. I couldn’t have asked for a better place for
my mom to live.”
- Kim Shaw, daughter of resident
