Memory care
Apple Grove Alzheimer's & Dementia Residence is a home-like facility that exclusively serves individuals who need memory care. Residents can enjoy activities like theme days, holiday celebrations, games, Bible study, and transportation to local shopping and sights. Amenities include room sensors to prevent falls, individually-controlled heat and air conditioning, stimulating programs, and a residents’ kitchen that allows supervised opportunities to cook. Residents receive three meals each day and snacks served restaurant-style, including daily from-scratch specials and always-available favorites. All residents have apartments with a private bathroom, although some apartments have semi-private bedroom arrangements. Medical care includes medication management, regular health assessments, and fall prevention. Because the facility is exclusively focused on memory care, it is specifically designed to provide appropriate and respectful services. The professionally-trained staff completes room checks every two hours, and residents can be observed 24/7 via webcams.
