Who are we?
“We are a village where older adults with memory loss gather; some come for visits and others live here. ElderHealth & Living Memory Village was established in 2006 by Liz and Nancy. Our village is created purely for persons with memory loss diseases to find comfort, freedom to be themselves, and to thrive. When most people hear a diagnosis of dementia, they feel devastated. We, at ElderHealth & Living Memory Village, see a transition to being a new person who can find joy and contentment in our Village designed specifically for them.”
- Memory Care Homes
- Our village has nine homes each with central open kitchens and outdoor spaces accommodating 10 to 11 residents. Each home is truly a home. People are not separated in apartments or secluded in bedrooms but live in a family environment, participating in cooking, cleaning, stacking wood, and other chores maintaining their sense of purpose and dignity. Our staff provide compassionate and nurturing care fostering each person’s strengths and interests as their memory declines.
