Safety and connection

We believe people living with dementia can continue to lead meaningful and joyful lives. That’s why we developed Life Guidance®, a secure neighborhood where specially trained staff provide highly personalized Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

A personal approach

Unlike traditional, “one-size-fits-all” medical care models, person-centered care uses the latest evidence-based techniques and emphasizes social connection. Caregivers meet with families to collect details about a person’s hometown, childhood and career – as well as their preferences, personality and stage of cognitive decline – to help influence the care they provide. Studies show that this holistic approach improves well-being, reduces agitation, lowers the rate of depression and decreases the need for medications.

  • Secure common spaces allow residents to move freely and safely.
  • Abundant natural light promotes restful sleep and prevents the symptoms of sundowning.
  • Décor and color schemes improve depth perception, while soft music reduces anxiety.
