Memory care services include the entire continuum of care across patient needs, beginning with care planning for every need and meeting your loved one’s wishes through every stage of life.

Our expansive services include caregiving skills and coaching to understand the phases of each type of condition that affects memory. Our Memory Care Navigators help prepare both patients and loved ones with what to expect and how to manage new developments in the disease processes, including behavioral, social and emotional changes. Our team continuously monitors and adjusts ongoing coaching and care or action planning to make sure your loved one feels secure and lives their life comfortably and with peaceful contentment.

Living with dementia is a journey. The free Memory Care Navigation program is a specialized service that provides each individual and their caregivers a personalized approach to care.  

The Memory Care Navigation program includes:

  • Meeting with individuals living with dementia and their caregivers in-person, virtually, or by telephone
  • Listening carefully and responding to needs, questions, and concerns
  • Assisting individuals and caregivers with developing action steps to help address identified needs
  • Offering optional home visits, when appropriate
  • Helping customize educational opportunities and resources
  • Coordinating referrals with local and regional agencies and programs for further information and assistance
  • Providing ongoing support and a point of contact when future needs and questions arise

Self-referrals from individuals and their caregivers, and referrals from providers are welcomed. The program is free to all individuals and their caregivers. Support for the Memory Care Navigation program is generously provided in loving memory of George T. Spain, by Steve and Grace Spain along with the Spain Family, through contributions to the Riverside Foundation.
