[Name removed] puts the "care" back into Memory Care

I moved my mother here from another memory care facility. [Name removed] puts the "care" back into Memory care. The Executive Director is an incredible leader, motivating and praising her staff. She sets the tone of caring and accountability. Leadership really matters in care facilities.

The care staff is tremendous. Example: At a crowded holiday party, I walked my mom across the room for an activity without her walker because it was so bulky. I didn't want her to hit people with it while walking. When the activity was over, I helped mom up, and a staff member spotted us from 50 feet away and wheeled the walker over without being asked. That would never have happened at mom's former facility.

The critical things in memory care are patience, kindness, friendliness, activities, appetizing food, no hurrying, and feeling like you are cared for, not like you are an inconvenient patient. Everything about [name removed], from the cleanliness to the smaller facility without confusing hallways to the open-concept where you can smell lunch cooking is built for the resident. But mostly it's the people. The activity director, the community engagement manager, everyone...they are all wonderful, and if they are not, they tend to self-select out.

I would put myself in a place like this. [Name removed] gave my mom a much better life than she was having before. Unfortunately, my mom passed. But the evening she did and the day after, staff members were coming up to hug me, some with tears in their eyes. They really cared about mom and me.

Loved the place. Plenty of caregivers to go around. Peaceful w large lazyboy chairs. Personal chef prepares food in a kitchen located in the main room. Nice rooms. Looks a little less homey, more institutional but I like it.

From the Community

Welcome Home

Memory Care by Design
Iris Memory Care is THE residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which regularly have in excess of 40 residents in a building, Iris Memory Care has two separate buildings that are built for a maximum of 24 residents each. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident’s health, happiness, and freedom of movement.

An open floor plan in each building permits residents to easily navigate their way and allows staff to provide accessible care and supervision. Thanks to a higher staff to resident ratio compared to most Assisted Living communities, residents enjoy individualized attention and care every day at Iris Memory Care.

The kitchen and dining areas are designed to encourage community and social engagement. Meals are served from an open concept gourmet kitchen where you can see, smell, and hear the preparations and even have a chat with the chef. Families are encouraged to join their loved one any time for engagement and conversation over a home-cooked meal!

Innovative Activities
Iris Memory Care believes that the best way to maintain a residents' quality of life, to help prevent falls, and to manage potential behavioral issues is to keep residents engaged in stimulating, interesting, and engaging activities! Robust activities programming and regularly scheduled events engage the mind and stimulate the senses, giving a sense of purpose and daily successes. Not only does Iris have a full time Life Enrichment Director (Activities Director) on staff, all staff members are equipped with multiple tools to assist their efforts in providing activities based on current research and best practices, including Snoezelen® Therapy, a soothing, multi-sensory experience designed to stimulate the mind, increase awareness, and improve mood and cognition.
