Redefining dignity for residents with dementia.
We understand that picking the right environment for a loved one suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s is one of the most difficult decisions you can make. At The Wildwood, our staff trains with top dementia educators to provide the highest quality personalized care so you can set aside being a primary caregiver and start to be family again.
Our Memory Care neighborhood is structured to offer an engaging and supportive environment with comfort and ease of navigation. By focusing on dignity, quality of life, and independence, we strive to ensure all residents feel respected and cared for as they age, regardless of what they remember today or tomorrow.

Assigned Life Enrichment Coordinators
Quality care begins with strong relationships. At The Wildwood, we pair Life Enrichment Coordinators and residents as a team so that personalized connection, trust, and friendship can be developed over time. By maintaining consistency we are able to focus on developing communication skills unique to each resident and strive to identify small changes in health and wellness.
We believe the best kind of security is as invisible as possible. We never want residents to feel monitored, so we make every effort to integrate resident safety systems in discreet ways. Have the peace of mind that residents don’t ever need to feel locked in or cooped up.
Specialized activity stations, called Life Stations™, are dotted strategically throughout Memory Care to promote engagement opportunities for residents. Designed to resemble important aspects of life, each station is intended to capture residents’ attention and promote a sense of purpose. Our Life Enrichment Coordinators also create life boxes that are specific to residents!
Every resident is different – with unique symptoms and behaviors caused by memory loss. But that doesn’t mean that residents’ activity should be limited. At The Wildwood, engagement means going the extra mile to understand each resident on a deeply personal level so they can stay as active and engaged as possible.
The effects of memory loss are rough on the diet. From changing tastes to loss of appetite and even medication interactions, ensuring quality nutrition is a nearly impossible task. That’s why a robust dining strategy is one of the core features of our Memory Care cottage.
It can be difficult for residents with dementia to maintain grooming habits – that’s why we spend time with every resident to assist. In addition to ensuring that every resident enjoys the daily care of combing, brushing, and makeup, we include a weekly visit to our salon at no additional cost.
Caring for residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s is a highly specialized skill requiring training through the best courses in empathy, communication, and personal care. At The Wildwood, we go well above basic training by insisting on continuing education using the best practices and specialized advanced courses.
