Awaken the senses.

When a loved one suffers from memory loss, it can feel devastating. Often times, family members try to care for their loved ones at home. As the disease progresses, the challenges grow, and the need for specialized care becomes a reality.

We can help.

Your loved one may suffer memory loss but that does not mean all is lost. That is where we come in. Our specially designed programs are created around the individual’s likes and preferences. We work to engage the senses and interact with them in a way that is safe, comforting, and familiar.

Through a myriad of engaging, and interactive visual, tactile and auditory stimuli, we work to awaken the senses to safe, recognizable activities that encourage recall, recollection and interaction.

We’ll show you how.

Your relationship with your loved one is as important to them now as it ever was. And while their memories have been shrouded, their need for love, comfort and interaction continues.

Our team provides support and education to assist you in continuing your relationship with your loved one in a way that is mutually beneficial and satisfying.

We can’t bring your loved one’s memories back or stop the progression of the disease, but we can help you connect and communicate with your loved one in meaningful ways.
