Memory Care

Memory care means always
living in the moment.

The Cedars Approach to Memory Care

The Cedars follows the Teepa Snow Positive ApproachTM to memory care, which encourages smart, compassionate responses to the challenging realities of brain change. Thoughtful evaluation and assessment focuses on each person’s strengths and provides an invaluable tool to assist with the development of individualized wellness plans for each resident that take into account changing abilities. Through the comprehensive life stories, staff insightfully support and celebrate each individual.

I am interested in living in a Memory Care Assisted Living household at The Cedars.

I wish to live at home and visit The Cedars for memory care therapy.
