Memory Care

Dignified Living. Person-Centered Care. Meaningful Days.

Crane’s View Lodge has developed an individualized Memory Care program with the special needs of our residents in mind. We believe every resident has a purpose and can change the world. Our holistic approach is designed to recognize each resident’s personal interests and habits, while addressing any medical, physical and social challenges that may accompany memory impairments.

Our Memory Care community consists of three vibrant and secure neighborhoods, each with 16 private, studio apartments. Each neighborhood is nestled around a main area for activity, events and dining and has access to our centrally located, spacious and secure courtyard.

More than beautiful surroundings, Memory Care at Crane’s View Lodge implements the best care practices and techniques for dementia care. We offer Heartfelt CONNECTIONS™, an exclusive program that provides those with memory loss the care, respect, dignity and quality of life they deserve.

The benefits of Heartfelt CONNECTIONS are brought about by getting to know our Memory Care residents’ life stories. We learn who they are on a personal level, capturing details about each resident’s family, friends, hobbies, past occupations, likes and dislikes. With this insight, we develop individualized programming for each resident, customizing activities that promote physical and emotional well-being, prolong daily functioning and help them maintain a sense of purpose, satisfaction and joy.

Dining with Dignity

At Crane’s View Lodge, we understand the challenges that memory loss can cause at mealtime. That’s why we’ve designed a dining experience that caters to the unique needs of our Memory Care residents. Our dining rooms are designed with colors that stimulate appetite; our china is even red, a color proven to boost the desire to eat. Plates and bowls are rimmed to promote independent dining, and for residents with unsteady hands, we offer Liftware stabilizing utensils that allow residents to eat with confidence. We also offer a variety of meal choices, including soft diets for those who have difficulty chewing or swallowing.
