As a leader in memory care, Holland Home has created “The Dementia Journey” an innovative empathy training tool for staff, caregivers and loved ones of those with dementia. This short video will explain our new program as well as give you insight into living with dementia.
At Holland Home we believe that the lives of people with memory loss can be enriched with appropriate and compassionate memory care. We offer adults with Alzheimer’s or related dementia a safe and secure environment where they can live life as fully as possible.
Why Choose a memory care facility for your loved one
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia is a challenge. Dementia strips its victims of short-term memory, making familiar tasks difficult and causing difficulties with language. There can also be disorientation, problems with abstract thinking and changes in mood, behavior or personality. People with memory loss have been known to wander off, and there’s always the fear of injury. Sometimes residential placement is the safest and most appropriate solution.
Benefits of specialized memory care and Alzheimer’s care
- Secure units to allow freedom of movement while preventing wandering.
- A predictable schedule providing structure to the day
- Specialized activities designed to provide the best in memory care and Alzheimer’s care
- Relief for the caregiver, allowing them to spend quality time with their loved one
We believe that a faith practice can be sustained despite memory loss, and we’ve created a unique worship service, Evening Star, that taps into memories of favorite hymns and Bible passages allowing our memory care residents to participate in worship. Our memory care residents are also welcome at all of our on-site worship services.
We offer memory care for all stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia on two of our campuses—Fulton Manor in the Fulton Heights area and Raybrook Manor in the Calvin College area.
