Activities Geared Toward Memory Care
Our wide range of personalized support services enables our residents with memory impairments to live as independently as possible. These services are included in residents’ service plans and are periodically reassessed by healthcare professionals.
One entire floor of Connemara Senior Living has been certified as a Special Care Residence and dedicated to the safety and comfort of residents who experience Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss. Apartments are spacious and easy to manage, offering residents all the comforts of home with the added advantage of safety features, housekeeping, specialized activity programming, and 24-hour security.
Whether you require extra care while recovering from an injury or illness, or need assistance while your primary caregiver is away, our respite care program is the perfect solution.
