Home Again Living Memory Care communities focus on providing a specialized environment for those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Our specially trained teams focus on the physical and emotional relief of residents as well as peace of mind for the families with a memory impaired loved one.
To improve the well-being and security of the memory care residents, this specially designed facility includes many amenities that normal assisted living apartments do not. Including secure entry ways to prevent wandering, a secure kitchen area for resident safety, and an open floor plan to allow staff to maintain the highest level of supervision.
Thriving with Dementia
Close your eyes and think of the smell of lilac. What image comes to mind? Our senses are some of the most powerful and direct sources to memory. Some of our strongest memories, our most potent associations, are triggered by odor. A smell that you associate with an event or moment in the past will often transport you to that moment. It can do so much more than just stir a memory.
Home Again combines several professional specializations to improve quality of life care for our residents. Our approach to memory care focuses on the treatment of residents as a whole person. We take into consideration mental and social factors, rather than simply treating the physical symptoms of Dementia.

Seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia benefit from creative activities like art and music. Art projects give a sense of accomplishment and purpose while allowing older adults to express themselves non-verbally.
Active Tactile Stimulation
Anything touched and anything that touches us can be stimulating. Every solid object has texture, temperature, shape. Balls in a collection can be smooth or rough, hard or soft, furry or…not. The sense of touch also includes the differentiation and recognition of temperature, pain, and body position (proprioception).
In addition to the therapeutic benefits of the oils themselves, studies have also shown that Aromatherapy: sensory stimulation for people with Alzheimer’s can decrease agitation, improve sleep and improve the overall quality of life for those living with the disease.
Daily exposure to Bright Light Therapy helps dementia patients with sleep disorders sleep longer and spend more time in deep sleep. As an added benefit, cognitive deterioration slowed with regular exposure to bright light, and symptoms of depression decreased.
