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

We remain on the cutting-edge of memory care by really knowing our residents, creating and regularly modifying their personal support plans and offering on-site healthcare and other advanced services. Our residents maintain levels of independence where they can and lean on our loving care for support when they need it.

Mariner’s Point residents with memory loss are also supported with daily programs that enhance their emotional, intellectual and mental health. With insight from family members and residents, we offer and immerse them in interest-oriented activities like live music and dancing, picnic lunches at nearby beaches, cultural events that trigger memories and classes that promote strength and balance.
