Specially Designed for Memory Care
Each St. John’s United community is purposefully-built from the ground up. Our cottages are thoughtfully designed and constructed to provide a comfortable and inviting environment for both you and your loved one. Because we care exclusively for people with dementia, we design our communities differently.
Residential areas feature themed décor to encourage familiarity for residents. Offices are purposely located near the main living room, allowing residents full access to our administrative staff at all times. Accessible indoor/outdoor living areas provide space for family gatherings and healthy physical activity. Every detail has been intentionally designed with our residents and families in mind.
Our living options have floor plans that reflect design based on safety and accessibility. Some of the Cottages provide an environment that is more comforting to those in all the stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Residents experiencing memory loss will feel safe and secure living with others in a simpler floor plan while their privacy is still honored with private rooms and bath with easily accessible kitchens.
Our professionals are there to help you with the challenges of memory loss by providing appropriate stimulation that helps you maintain connections with your family and community.
