Why Memory Garden
Our emotional and personal approach to Alzheimer's CareAn emotional and personal approach was taken throughout the phases of design, development, building and completion of our physically supportive environment. Our memory care community protects residents from their own cognitively poor judgment while helping them to remain functional. As contributors in the upkeep of their household, they are encouraged to participate in gender specific activities, and therefore a sense of purpose and well-being remains in their lives.

Caring for a memory impaired loved one at home is at best, frightening, painful and exhausting. The overwhelming stress on the caregiver is so often reflected in the behaviors of the memory impaired individual. Our life's work is to alleviate both.

Memory Garden provides the most advanced care, yet looks and feels like home. Five households of ten residents together create a "neighborhood." Each household is made up of nine residential suites, distinguished by floral themes, special colors, and other thoughtful details that help residents become oriented to their surroundings and feel comfortable. Memory Garden is full of environmental characteristics that ease the challenge of living day to day with memory impairment:
  • Enclosed courtyards for gardening, picnicking, and strolling
  • Spacious suites, a private area to personalize
  • Households that provide an intimate atmosphere
  • Memory boxes that help identify suite entrance
  • Country kitchens for dining and socializing
  • Hair care salon for improving self-esteem
  • Soda Shop for socializing and activities
  • Elegant private dining rooms for family dinners and special occasions
  • Activity lounges, parlors and sun rooms encourage socialization and creativity
  • Fitness room for maintaining physical strength and mobility
  • Secured exits for safety
  • Outdoor recreation areas for fresh air, meditation, and enjoyment
    • Park
    • Picnic Pavilion
    • Fenced Fishing Ponds
    • Nature Walking Trails

"I just want to thank you and everyone else at Tanglewood for the love and care you gave Grandma, and by extension, Mom, Robin, and me. There certainly was a guardian angel on my shoulder in December of 2009 when I was so desperately searching for a safe place for Grandma. I found that, and more. You all were the reason she lived so long. I know that. Thank you all, for everything you've done for my family. What an amazing gift you offer."
