Daily living can grow more difficult as we age, and for some, memory is among these challenges. In fact, today one in nine Americans over age 65 has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This highlights the growing need for quality memory care facilities that allow residents to age in place, feel secure, and remain social and active while receiving the care they require. At Rivertown Ridge, residents and their families find peace of mind thanks to Lighthouse Memory Support, our memory care program for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and similar conditions.
Designed for Memory Care
With 30 memory care apartments on our 10-acre Rivertown Park campus, residents will find comfortable studio accommodations and shared suites designed with their needs in mind. A focus on environmental design creates a safe, secure environment that is more easily navigated by individuals coping with memory challenges.
The memory care facilities on our campus include a secure courtyard where residents can enjoy sunny days and the warmer months. Craft and activity rooms and gathering spaces offer opportunities to stimulate the mind and spend time with friends and family members, while a private dining room makes it easy to enjoy a delicious meal. A sensory room is included in our memory care facilities as well, where residents can engage all five senses. With gentle sounds, scents, lighting, and tactile and visual sensations, it’s the ideal place for cognitive stimulation or a calming retreat.
Specialized Care from an Expert Team
Every Lighthouse Memory Support staff member has received specialized training in Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, preparing them to provide the highest level of care 24 hours a day and seven days per week. From medication reminders, administration, and supervision to helpful reminders and verbal cues, support is always available when it’s needed most.
At the same time, every resident receives a fully customized care plan to provide the exact level of support they require. Our team will work with residents and their family members to assess current needs, identify opportunities for improvement, and plan for the future. Along with our innovative programming, social activities, and on-site wellness center, residents find everything they need to stay healthy, engaged, and mentally active.
