Comprehensive Alzheimer’s Care Living Facilities

Loving and caring for a person with memory loss means adapting to ongoing change and losses. For those with Alzheimer’s and related dementia, each day can be filled with unfamiliar routines and people. Mennonite Village offers three stages of residential care to help keep your loved one engaged, comfortable, and mentally active.

Early Alzheimer’s care

Our Mary’s Place foster care home for men and women helps early-stage Alzheimer’s patients retain some independence while seeing to their welfare at all times. These semi-independent living facilities are ideal for active seniors who can no longer live alone safely and need minimal assistance with activities of daily living. We retain security and medical personnel on staff 24/7 to see to any emergency, and our activities directors provide a rich program of entertainment options and activities that will keep them connected to our community and their families.

Advanced Alzheimer’s care

Alzheimer’s and dementia care at Lydia’s House was created and designed for men and women with mid-stage or advanced memory loss as a natural extension of our continuing care retirement community. We provide a safe, nurturing home where residents are accepted and their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs are met both day and night. Our team of attendants, nursing staff, and cooking staff will take your senior’s unique needs into account and ensure they’re safe as they enjoy daily meals, outings, art and exercise activities, and much more.
