Our secure Life Enrichment Memory Care neighborhood provides a nurturing environment for residents with earlier stages of dementia or memory loss.
Q. What is habilitation?
A. Habilitation is an approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care that involves joining the individual in their reality to promote positive experiences and self-esteem. At Linda Manor, our entire staff is educated in the habilitation philosophy to enhance interactions with all of our residents.
Q. My loved one was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Does this mean they need memory care?
A. There are many considerations in deciding the best living situation for someone with memory impairment, including disease progression and potential safety concerns. Even with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, some individuals thrive with the support of assisted living. For others, a secure environment that focuses on daily engagement is a more enriching setting. We work with families to determine the best option for their loved one’s personal situation.
