The Heart of the Matter

Memory Care Is All We Do
Finding an assisted living team that specializes in memory care—or dementia care—takes time and effort. We understand the challenges caused by memory loss and embrace a philosophy that considers physical, environmental and social factors in attending to each individual’s comfort.
Our caregivers have experience with the following memory loss conditions and are focused on the emotional and personal well-being of our residents. We encourage you to ask questions about our approach to care to address your loved one’s type and stage of dementia.
We specialize in:
Mild Cognitive Impairment
Lewy Body Dementia
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
At Heartwood we are committed to the highest standards in memory care to address the complex needs of our elders. We have found and truly believe that the presence of others and a loving touch has a profound effect on the personal and emotional well-being of our residents.
Individualized Memory Care
We take great pride in getting to know each of our residents and their families, in reviewing their social history, in understanding their expectations and concerns, and in creating a detailed care plan. Our team is committed to your needs and to helping elders live with dignity and grace. Our caregivers are skilled at delivering person-centered care for all stages of life, regardless of mental capacity or physical ability. Because of our shared values, we choose to acknowledge the reality that our residents are living in, redirect when necessary, modify the environment, and change our expectations.
We believe memory care success is based on whether we touch people’s lives. You can be assured of our commitment to keeping all of our residents happy, comfortable and functioning at the highest level possible.
The transition to a person-centered care community is not so much a destination as it is a journey. We recognize that change can be difficult for anyone, regardless of whether they are challenged with memory loss. Understanding and helping our residents through these changes is at the core of our culture and commitment to achieving five-star plus service. At Heartwood, we strive for continuous improvement and welcome recommendations from our families.
