Memory care facilities are specialized living communities designed to provide comprehensive care for people with memory disorders like Alzheimer's and dementia. These specialized environments are specifically tailored to meet the needs of those living with these conditions. Memory care communities provide a safe and secure environment that is designed to protect residents while providing compassionate support and quality care services. At The Residency at Ridgewood, we understand the unique needs of those with memory impairment and have created a warm and nurturing environment tailored to meet those needs. Our staff is experienced in caring for memory-impaired individuals and provides personalized attention to each individual resident. Our nursing staff has been trained on best practices for dementia care, and our highly qualified team of caregivers is committed to providing exceptional service to our residents.
At The Residency at Ridgewood, we not only strive to meet the physical needs of our residents but their emotional needs as well. We provide opportunities for self-expression through social activities, wellness classes, and other great community-based activities. All of this helps create a sense of community which helps foster an atmosphere where all feel welcome and accepted regardless of their condition. We also heavily emphasize habit-building to reduce the stress and anxiety of changing schedules. We also strive to make our environment a place where residents can live as independently as possible while receiving compassionately informed support from our professional caregivers. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that encourages dignity and respect while empowering each resident through meaningful engagement opportunities tailored specifically to them—allowing them to remain engaged in life despite any cognitive decline they may experience.
About Our Memory Care Cottages
Our memory care Cottages are specially designed to offer a spacious floor plan with amenities catered to those who need memory care. Featuring a 318 square foot floor plan, each memory care cottage will come with one bedroom and one bathroom, similar to our assisted living Chalet rooms, without the kitchenette. Due to the nature of many memory loss diseases, kitchenettes are not offered in our memory care cottages; however, our staff will provide our residents with nutritious meals throughout the day.
