Memory Care

Masonicare offers three specialized units dedicated to memory care. These units provide a safe and secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias. 

If your family member ever has the need for hospital-level care, they’ll have instant access to Masonicare’s Acute Care Senior Hospital—located on-site. Our simple admission process will allow them to directly transfer to a hospital bed. Treatment will begin immediately, without hours of waiting in a traditional emergency room. Masonicare’s Acute Care Senior Hospital is a member of the Connecticut Senior Hospital Alliance.

Learn More About Our Acute Care Senior Hospital

“I want to tell you how much I appreciated all the care my mother received on your memory care unit. The staff taught me how to cope with difficult situations related to her memory loss. I live over 3 hours away and you all went above and beyond to communicate with me whether I was there or had to call from a distance.”

- Tim, Family Member of Memory Care Resident

The Continuum Advantage

The team at Masonicare is not only dedicated to your recovery, but also to the prevention of complications and rehospitalizations once you’re back home.

You can expect ongoing evaluations to determine your need for home health or outpatient therapy after discharge. Since Masonicare provides these services, you’ll have the option of an easy transition within the continuum.
