Specialized care and support.
Memory care goes beyond treating just the most common forms of dementia.

And, of course, we offer support for family caregivers, as well, through our respite care program and support group.
Our main goal is to provide all of our patients with dignity as their journey progresses. By addressing their needs on an individual level, we can help residents live as engaging, productive and enriched lives as possible.

Our approach is grounded in Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program®
For individuals needing Alzheimer’s and dementia care, Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program® promotes physical and emotional well-being, supports daily functioning and maintains a sense of purpose, satisfaction, dignity and quality of life. With our innovative Alzheimer’s and dementia care activities and programming, you can get back to being the daughter, son or spouse your loved one needs in his or her life.
We start by truly getting to know each resident on a personal level, capturing a lasting legacy of details about your loved one: family, friends, career, hobbies, likes and dislikes. This allows us to gain insights to develop true person-centered activities and programming for each resident. By focusing on the capabilities that remain instead of what was lost, we make each moment meaningful, purposeful and create success stories, one small victory at a time.
Creating a Sense of Balance for Memory Care Residents
For residents with memory loss, we can minimize anxiety by incorporating specific routines in a familiar, comfortable environment. Without balance in their lives, seniors with dementia often experience frustration or agitation. To lead a balanced and active life, there are three components we subconsciously all require:
When we look better, we feel better, so we make sure residents are successful at everyday tasks like getting dressed, washing their face and combing their hair.
Vocation and productivity
We find ways to incorporate or simulate routine activities from a former vocation or career to provide a sense of purpose to residents’ days.
Residents have opportunities to engage in leisure activities that are familiar to those they’ve always enjoyed in the past.

We call our memory care neighborhood “The Garden.”
There’s something soothing about a garden, isn’t there? When everything is in bloom, stretching towards the warmth of the sun. We like to think of our residents as those flowers. Their roots are strong, they just need a little extra tending, too, and a whole lot of TLC.
Residents are our number one focus.
Our guiding principles are part of everything we do to provide for our Alzheimer’s and dementia care residents. At our tight-knit, residential retirement community in Dallas, we whole-heartedly believe:
- Aging is a natural process, but not the end of a story.
- What remains is far more important than things that were lost.
- Each resident deserves to celebrate and embrace daily achievements.
- We can create success stories through every small victory.
A Caregiver’s Guide to Memory Care
Becoming a caregiver doesn’t come with a manual on how to safely provide loving Alzheimer’s care or other dementia care for a loved one. And when it comes to finding Alzheimer’s and dementia care, that can be just as overwhelming as your caregiver duties. Even if your loved one is in a progressed stage of a memory-related condition, we understand you still need a place to find information and get answers to your questions.
