unlike traditional assisted living
Heritage Springs Memory Care is unlike traditional assisted living and long-term care facilities. While any facility can meet the basic needs of its residents, our communities have been architecturally designed for the specific needs of individuals with dementia and to help enhance their lives. The physical design and layout of the neighborhoods allow residents to safely wander, a common habit among seniors with memory impairments.
Comfortable, home-like common-areas, such as living rooms and activity rooms promote social opportunities and cognitive stimulation. The use of varying colors and materials help to define the transitions between common-areas, hallways and suites; important as visual impairments are common among dementia patients.
Since individuals with dementia can become easily stressed and confused, our communities feature a lot of natural light and have soothing color schemes to help emphasize relaxation and calm.
