Memory Care

Expert Memory Care Services

Holland Home is dedicated to improving the lives of those suffering from memory loss. With a specially trained team of compassionate and dedicated experts, we’re able to enhance the lives of those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s while ensuring their safety, health, comfort, and security.


Choosing Holland Home’s Memory Care Services

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 Holland Home’s specialized memory care and Alzheimer’s care:

  • Expert care team specially trained on how to best communicate with and care for loved ones experiencing varying levels of dementia
  • Secure units that allow freedom of movement while preventing wandering
  • A predictable schedule providing structure to the day
  • Specialized activities designed especially for memory care patients
  • Comfortable gathering spaces for families and friends to spend quality time with their loved one

Specialty Dementia Training

All Holland Home employees go through specialized dementia training to improve the care and empathy they provide loved ones experiencing memory loss. One innovative method, called the Dementia Journey, uses virtual reality to mimic the confusion that comes with dementia. Using sound, vision, and sensory impairments, team members are asked to manage the daily tasks that the dementia patients go through in their everyday lives. This unique approach gives the caregiver a higher level of insight into the disease, empathy for what the patient is facing, and greater compassion in their care. 

In addition to the Dementia Journey, our care teams also engage in an innovative and effective training program called the Positive Approach™ to Care. Developed by renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow, this unique approach further educates our staff on the effects of dementia while providing instruction on how best to communicate with, relate to, and care for memory care residents.

Holland Home is recognized as the first organization in the state of Michigan, and only the fifth organization nationally, to achieve the coveted “Designated Organization” accreditation from Positive Approach® to Care (PAC).
