Memory Care at Vineyard Senior Living

Learn the Benefits of Memory Care

Memory care residents have some form of a memory-related disorder, most commonly dementia or Alzheimer’s, and need daily assistance specific to their needs.

Vineyard Director of Geriatric Medicine & Aging, Dr. Evelyn C. Granieri, M.D., MPH, MSEd, explains types and signs of dementia.

Memory care communities cater to those with memory-related conditions. At Vineyard, our proprietary dementia care program, Cultivate, enhances the quality of life of our residents by understanding that their uniqueness should correlate to the right kind of care.

The unique layouts of our buildings were designed with memory care in mind, to offer open and inviting spaces that at the same time, can be monitored by staff.
