MEMORY LANE...Smiles, connections, moments of joy...

In our 24-bed secured unit dedicated to the care of people with memory impairment, our staff seeks to find the keys to enable your loved one to:

  • unlock pleasant memories of times past
  • open the door to quality of life
  • engage in pleasant social interaction
  • participate in stimulating activities
  • relax in quiet moments
  • feel a sense of freedom in a safe environment
  • find security in a consistent routine
  • experience a loving relationship with compassionate caregivers
  • preserve a sense of self-worth
  • participate in their care to their best abilities

When Alzheimer's or dementia hits home, it can discourage and exhaust not only the victim, but also the entire family. When the physical and emotional burden of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease is too much, it is time for a walk down Memory Lane. When it is no longer safe for a loved one to be at home because of confusion, wandering or lack of safety awareness, it is time for a walk down Memory Lane. When incontinence, lack of hygiene or poor nutrition threaten the general health of a loved one with dementia, it is time for a walk down Memory Lane. When depression seems to overwhelm your loved one who has Alzheimer's disease, a walk down Memory Lane can help to lift the cloud of hopelessness.

The professional, competent, compassionate staff of Memory Lane is dedicated to assist your loved one to integrate unique life experiences of the past with present interests and talents. We have the experience and expertise to simplify and enhance the activities of daily living for your loved one and focus on abilities rather than disabilities, helping to preserve dignity and a sense of well-being.
