Safety and Comfort for Your Peace of Mind

People suffering from memory loss, Alzheimer’s and dementia are prone to wandering, which can be extremely dangerous for the person and very worrisome for caregivers. We designed our Harbor Memory Care neighborhood with visual cues and themes to stimulate memory and help residents find their way, contrasting colors to help residents identify their surroundings, special lighting to reduce shadows in the common areas, electronic door security inside and out for safety, and comfortable, familiar furniture designed for the unique needs of seniors receiving treatment for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
