Alzheimer’s and Dementia Memory Care

LiFE – Letting Individuality Freely ExistMemory Care - Alzheimer's and Dementia Care for Senior
Memory loss and cognitive impairment associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia present a unique set of care challenges for both seniors and their families. Many family members caring for senior loved ones who need memory care find that when the stress of daily care is removed, so is the tension. Loving relationships can be re-established and can flourish. Five CSL communities offer memory care in a separate, ensconced and secure area that includes a private courtyard. Entrances and exits utilize delayed egress and monitoring technology.These smaller, quaint environments are designed to provide superior care for seniors with dementia-related challenges.

Residents are able to enjoy LiFE – Letting Individuality Freely Exist TM – a person-centered approach to care which values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints and honors the connection among us all. The program utilizes best practices in dementia care as well as state-of-the-art sensory integration and therapeutic treatment tools. Chateau Poet’s Corner in Pleasant Hill is Carlton’s only community dedicated to Alzheimer’s & Dementia Memory Care. Other communities offering the LiFE program are Chateau III Pleasant Hill and the Carlton Plazas in San LeandroSan Jose, Elk Grove, Davis and Sacramento.
