And among your options for making that future bright are the many Memory Support programs and opportunities at Presbyterian Village North.

“Our family couldn’t be happier with the Memory Support services at Presbyterian Village North. The team members are great with Dad and provide him with the expert care, compassion and engagement he needs—it’s as if he were one of their own family members. And that gives us all a great deal of peace of mind.”
Great care is the result of extensive training and a deep sense of empathy for the patient experience. Our team receives ongoing specialized education and dementia-specific training like Dementia Live®—an immersive dementia simulation experience that gives caregivers a firsthand experience at what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change. This system employs specialized gear that simulates the sensory experience of dementia, including altered eyesight, hearing and even touch. The program also includes a suite of tools and training designed to improve communication, relationship building, and even how we manage the physical environment for those living with dementia.

Patients who are cognitively challenged, whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, require more attention and a higher level of security than residents in assisted living. Memory support residences at The Village are carefully designed to ensure that residents feel safe and secure. Our program is structured to build confidence in an environment that promotes choice and celebrates accomplishments through familiar schedules and surroundings.
Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that are severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. This group of symptoms is not a disease per se, but may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by lifestyle choices, depression or imbalances in certain substances, such as hormones or vitamins.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas, leading to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually old memories, too.
