If your loved one is struggling with memory loss due to Alzheimer’s or dementia, the Heritage family understands what you’re going through. Many of our assisted living campuses have a special memory care wing called The Legacy: Memory Support. At the Legacy, we practice Life Unrehearsed®, a unique philosophy of care that allows each day to unfold with joy and peace.
The Heritage family of care extends to all levels of senior care, and memory support is no exception. At The Legacy, seniors live in their own apartments in areas that are specifically designed for those with memory impairments. From figure-eight floor plans that alleviate the stress of being lost to enclosed courtyards for the residents to safely enjoy the outdoors, we’ve taken great care to provide a safe, strategic, and compassionate environment for your loved one to maintain the greatest level of independence possible.
Services provided by The Legacy: Memory Support wellness team include:
- Consistent nursing care 24-hours a day
- Management of medications
- Personal assistance with daily activities, bathing, and dressing
Additional services included at our The Legacy: Memory Support care communities are:
- Three healthy and nutritious meals daily
- Reminders and assistance with meals and other community activities
All of our memory care campuses also offer respite care for short-term stays. Respite care is a great option for times when caregivers need to be away from their loved ones or need to take a breath or a break. Memory care is offered at Evergreen Senior Living campuses in Chillicothe, Decatur, and Orland Park and also Heritage Health in Normal.
