Memory Care By Design
Iris Memory Care is the residential alternative to traditional Assisted Living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which are normally a "wing" in a much larger community, Iris Memory Care offers specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care in a residential setting. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident’s health, happiness, and freedom of movement.
The residential model with centrally located common areas permits residents to relax and feel at home and allows staff to provide accessible care and supervision. Thanks to a higher staff to resident ratio compared to most Assisted Living communities, residents enjoy individualized attention and care every day at Iris Memory Care. The kitchen and dining areas are designed to encourage community and social engagement. Families are encouraged to join their loved one any time for engagement and conversation over a home-cooked meal!
