Care & Support for Those with Cognitive Impairments
As we grow older, many Americans will experience conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s. These impairments can make living alone difficult, isolating, and even dangerous.
At The Legacy of Saint Michael, our Memory Care program is designed to provide personalized support and care to our residents with memory loss and cognitive impairments. Our goal is to ensure our residents remain comfortable, safe, and independent with access to 24-hour support from our highly-trained nursing staff.
Our Memory Care team undergoes specialized, dementia-specific education that trains them on providing individualized support to each resident. Using science-based practices, the community offers a comforting and supportive environment in a secure area that maintains the daily routines and activities that our residents need.
Your loved one deserves the best, and they’ll have it at The Legacy of Saint Michael. Please, contact us today for a tour.
