Memory Care Services

Memory loss doesn’t have to define you or your loved one’s life. At Home of the Good Shepherd, our compassionate memory care services empower residents to thrive in a secure and engaging environment. We understand the challenges of memory loss, but we also believe in the potential for joy, connection, and a fulfilling life. Our memory care residences offer:

Homelike Environment

Our single-story residence offers a safe and secure environment that feels just like home.  Spacious, private rooms with ample natural light ensure comfort and a sense of peace. Residents can socialize in our welcoming common areas, which include a coffee shop, newsstand, ice cream parlor, post office, beauty salon, and even an old-fashioned penny candy store. This familiar atmosphere fosters a strong sense of community, encouraging residents to connect and build friendships.

Activities & Life Enrichment

We understand the importance of keeping residents mentally and socially stimulated, that’s why we offer a variety of engaging activities to suit individual preferences. From movement to music to gardening, and book clubs – our activities calendar provides ample opportunities for social interaction and connection. We also incorporate therapeutic modalities like art and music therapy, aromatherapy, horticulture therapy, chair yoga, and laughter therapy to further stimulate the senses and promote overall well-being. Your loved one’s well-being, sense of personal identity, and feelings of community are central to everything we do in our memory care community.

Personalized Care for Every Resident

At Home of the Good Shepherd, we believe in a personalized approach to care. We work collaboratively with residents, families, and healthcare professionals to develop customized care plans that reflect each resident’s unique needs and preferences. These plans address daily routines, medical considerations, and personal well-being. Our dedicated staff regularly reviews and updates the plans to ensure ongoing support as the resident’s condition progresses.

We Emphasize the “Care” in Alzheimer’s And Memory Loss Care

Our Memory Care Residences offer a secure, home-like setting with 24/7 supervision by highly trained staff, including RN Care Managers, LPNs, and resident aides specializing in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our exceptional staff-to-resident ratio ensures personalized attention and allows us to manage behavioral changes with calmness and understanding.

Support for the Family

We understand that Alzheimer’s disease affects the entire family, not just the individual. You may be facing a range of challenges, both practical and emotional. At Home of the Good Shepherd, we are here to support you every step of the way.

  • Family Meetings and Care Planning: We offer family council meetings and personalized care plan discussions to address your specific concerns and develop a plan that ensures your loved one’s well-being.
  • Structured Daily Routine: Our experienced care team works collaboratively with you to create a structured daily routine for your loved one, fostering a sense of stability and comfort.
  • Ongoing Collaboration: We encourage families to remain actively involved in their loved one’s care and work hand in hand with the Alzheimer’s Association to help families who may need some additional support.
  • Reduced Caregiver Stress: By providing exceptional care for your loved one, we can alleviate the stress and burden often felt by caregivers. This allows you to focus on quality time with your loved one and maintain your own well-being.

Together, we can create a supportive environment where your loved one can thrive.

Absolutely spectacular care! Their enhanced assisted living services are top notch, and illustrate how some other local facilities who claim to provide enhanced assisted living services, really come up short. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Great facility, and wonderful people, all very friendly and helpful. The facility is very clean, and they have daily activities for the residents.

The care provided at the Home of the Good Shepard has been nothing less than stellar. The staff is compassionate and helpful at all times. My family and I are very grateful to have a wonderful place like the Good Shepard to call home for my mother.
