Care Types

Mind & Memory Care Levels

  • Our Mind & Memory Plan is for residents whose care needs consist primarily of cueing and reminders. Residents are appropriate for our Mind & Memory Care Plan if they generally exhibit mild cognitive impairment and no or limited behaviors such as aggression or resistance to care.
  • Our Mind & Memory I Plan is for residents whose care needs consist primarily of a minimal level of physical assistance with activities of daily living, and minimal levels of cognitive impairment.
  • Our Mind & Memory II Plan is for residents whose care needs require a moderate amount of physical assistance with several activities of daily living, and who generally exhibit moderate cognitive impairment.
  • Our Mind & Memory III Plan is for residents whose care needs require a substantial amount of physical assistance with several activities of daily living, and who generally exhibit severe cognitive impairment and/or associated behaviors.
  • Our Mind & Memory IV Plan is for residents who have extensive needs, for example: a need for total care with one or more activities of daily living, or a substantial amount of assistance is warranted on a daily basis.
  • Our Mind & Memory V Plan is for residents who need total assistance with all aspects of care, as well as usage of a mechanical or electrical lift for transfers on an ongoing basis. They may also require extensive emotional/behavioral support.

Personalized, needs-based care to support individual abilities

Our personalized care plans provide a blueprint for each of our residents’ days to help ensure their needs are met, and they have the freedom to stay as active and engaged as possible. Our associates also have a deep understanding of our residents and provide care in a way that allows for the best possible experience in every interaction.

Memory loss can affect each aspect of an individual’s health, so we manage it with a comprehensive, holistic approach using that which has been proven effective. Benchmark Strong fitness classes and “volleyball” addresses strength and balance while programs like music, doll and art therapy improves cognitive function and eases tension.
