Alzheimers Care

The Memory Care Center of Excellence is founded in the philosophy that by surrounding people with life, plants, pets, children, social opportunities and a sense of purpose they will live better, longer and happier lives.  The Episcopal Church Home has implemented this philosophy incorporating it into every aspect of the Center, from the very design of the building to the assembling of its care giving staff.

Personal Care residents in each of the neighborhoods have a private bedroom with private bath.  All residents enjoy common living rooms, family-style kitchens and dining rooms.  The familiarity and home-like atmosphere of this design concept contributes to resident’s feelings of acceptance, well-being and purpose.  For every cluster of homes, staff members trained specifically to deal with the needs of memory-impaired residents employ a program of care based on particular needs and abilities of the residents.  Residents whose medical condition requires more intensive nursing services reside in the Marmion Neighborhood within The Episcopal Church Home.
