Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in a Memory Care Neighborhood Setting
Resident-Centered Memory Care
For seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, The Palmer Special Care Residence at Casa de las Campanas offers a supportive memory care environment to create purposeful days. As an independent living resident of our Life Plan Community, residents have exclusive access to a full range of health services. The Health Center is accessible just for Casa de las Campanas residents and is consistently rated among the top senior health centers in the area. Specially trained team members combine expertise and compassion to provide residents with the thoughtful attention they deserve.
The homelike environment is as secure as it is comfortable, and activities are designed for residents’ unique needs. We focus on each senior’s remaining abilities and celebrate small achievements to encourage their confidence and sense of self.
Specialized Care Plans
Team members work with residents to develop an individualized care plan based on their abilities and the support services they require to live with dignity and fulfillment.
Here to Help
A licensed vocational nurse and a team of trained caregivers are on-site 24 hours a day to provide support. Activity staff work with the care team to bring about peaceful days and inspire confidence.
