Memory Care Services

State-of-the-Art Memory Care

Our team of professionals is committed to enriching the lives of the seniors we serve throughout their journey. We believe our state-of-the-art memory care services do just that.

Combining the Botes Memory Method developed by dementia specialist Sira Botes and the Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) and GEMS® Model developed by Teepa Snow, a leading educator on dementia and its care, memory care at The Village delivers individualized personal care. Our memory support caregivers are trained in both methods.

The Botes Memory Method

The Botes Memory Method by Sira Botes redefines dementia care by focusing on everyone affected by memory loss – the residents, their families and the caregivers. This approach wraps arms of support around them all, providing personalized care and meaningful activities for the residents, education and guidance for the families, and advanced training for the staff.

With our expertly trained partners at Concierge Home Care, we coordinate a careful assessment of the new resident and consult with the family physician.

The assessment determines the resident’s highest, safest cognitive level, and a personalized care plan for the resident and everyone involved in their care is developed.

Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) and GEMS® Model

The Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) focuses on a person’s retained abilities versus the abilities that have been lost. We place people before tasks and nurture relationships that recognize the importance of privacy, choice, dignity, purpose and the involvement of family and friends.

The GEMS® Model for brain change compares people living with dementia to gemstones. The approach focuses on his or her retained abilities so we may see what is beautiful, and still available, for the person with whom we share time and offer support and care.


Designed for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Laurel Square and Azalea Trace are both designed as memory care neighborhoods, each with a limited number of residents for optimal staffing ratios. The neighborhood design allows our associates to focus on the strengths, talents and personal preferences of residents while providing support to family members. This unique memory care option provides families with peace of mind, knowing their loved one is secure and cared for.
