Memory Care is a residential community designed specifically for individuals experiencing varying degrees of cognitive impairment. Memory Care communities provide a safe environment, and specialized care and services to engage residents during each stage of memory decline.

Nursing Homes are designed for people who need nursing or medical oversight on a 24-hour basis, but not the level of care provided by a hospital.
