Our nurturing staff members have at least 30 hours of specialized training in caring for individuals with memory loss, including a dementia simulation process to help better understand the progression of the disease.
In-depth interviews are conducted with family members prior to their loved one moving to memory care. This allows us to learn about the individual’s life, career, hobbies, preferences, etc., and create a comprehensive personal care plan.
The Hickory is home to two separate Memory Support neighborhoods, each of which houses 18 residents. Both provide inviting environments and a great deal of freedom for residents to move about their homes. Programming also includes plenty of staff-accompanied time outdoors on our 400-acre campus for those who are interested. We offer golf cart rides and walks.
Our goal in providing Memory Support is enhancing the quality of life for individuals with memory loss, as well as their caregivers. Families are welcome to visit 24/7 and are always invited to join their family member for meals.
We welcome two week minimum respite stays for families who need a break from caregiving. This is an ideal way to introduce specialize memory care to a loved one.
