White Bear Lake Memory Care Living Designed to Meet Specific Needs
Memory care at The Pillars of White Bear Lake is designed for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Residents live in their own private apartments with individual baths and gather for meals and activities in family-style dining and living rooms. Our serene outdoor garden courtyard that surrounds the community is specially planned for those with memory loss. Our memory care living area is in an access-controlled space to accommodate those who become easily disoriented or have a tendency to wander.
Our senior living memory care neighborhood is specifically designed to offer an Alzheimer’s and dementia supportive environment with individualized care services. It is a welcoming area decorated with calming colors, accessible spaces, and soft furniture. Gentle lighting helps to lessen the anxiety that people living with Alzheimer’s memory loss often feel. Our residents receive low-stress and comfortable living through evidence-based programs and thoughtful amenities, such as spa tub rooms. Staff is on-site 24 hours every day providing support.
As an Ebenezer community, our staff works directly with residents helping them participate in daily activities, encouraging socialization, and providing ability-appropriate activities for them to engage in. All caregivers who work with residents are trained to serve seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
