Connections - Special Care Unit

We use the best parts of established programs for the care of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia illnesses. We know that we can make personal and relevant connections with the people we serve.

We believe that caring for the person, life and spirit is the way it should be done, not just a slogan. We believe that the care we provide is not just about structured activities but what goes on between structured activities. We are less task oriented. We enjoy the moment. We live in the moment.
