Memory Care

With the increasing population of adults age 65 and older, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are becoming more and more prevalent, which is why having a Memory Care facility is so important.

Every aspect of our community, from dining to design caters to the unique needs of each resident. Francois Bend’s Memory Care is a secure, specialized environment for residents with memory loss. The dedicated area includes 24 apartments attended by specially-trained staff in dementia care. Each resident has an individual care plan to promote good health, cognition, and physical status.

Programs and activities are created to encourage current strengths and abilities, promote cognitive function, provide meaning and joy, and stimulate reminiscence.

Here at Francois Bend, our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those with memory loss, as well as their families and caregivers.
