Atria’s approach to memory care

Here are just a few ways our forward-thinking approach to memory care improves the lives of residents.

  • Secure gathering spaces allow residents to move freely and safely
  • Highly trained staff offer personalized care using the latest evidence-based techniques
  • Physical activities, cognitive programs and staff-guided outings improve mood and stimulate cognition
  • Abundant natural light helps regulate circadian rhythms, promoting restful sleep and reducing evening agitation
  • An intimate dining room encourages engagement between residents
  • Apartments have an intentionally small footprint to encourage social connection throughout the community

Frequently asked questions

Memory care is a specialized form of residential care designed specifically for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other forms of memory impairment. Key aspects of memory care include specialized assistance, a secure environment and therapeutic programs designed to stimulate cognitive function and encourage social interaction.

The primary goal of the memory care neighborhood at Atria Greenridge Place is to provide a secure and structured environment that helps residents maintain their health and well-being.

The primary differences between assisted living and memory care are the levels of care available and security of the environment. Assisted living caters to a broader range of seniors who require less intensive support. Memory care communities often have enhanced security features to prevent wandering and specialized programs that support those experiencing cognitive decline.

In addition to assisted living, Atria Greenridge Place offers memory care, which can help ease the transition for residents who begin to experience memory impairment and require additional support.

The cost of memory care varies based on factors like amenities, apartment type and location.

The average cost of memory care in Connecticut is $7,500 per month, while families in Rocky Hill can expect to pay closer to $5,900 per month.

The monthly rate for the memory care neighborhood at Atria includes housekeeping, meals and daily events that support physical and cognitive well-being. Our cost calculator will help you compare current expenses to the cost of memory care at Atria Greenridge Place.

In addition to research-based care through our Life Guidance memory care neighborhood, Atria Greenridge Place offers support for families. Through a collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter, we now also offer support through educational events and Alzheimer’s Association event sponsorship.
