Meeting the Memory Care Challenge

Program strives to engage patients

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia present a unique and difficult set of care challenges for seniors and their families. Many families caring for loved ones with memory loss and cognitive impairment find, however, that when the stress of daily care is removed by moving a loved one into memory care, loving relationships often can be re-established and can flourish.

Carlton Senior Living’s person-centered approach to memory care values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints, and honors the connections between us all. We use best practices in dementia care as well as state-of-the-art sensory integration and therapeutic programming.

Residents are encouraged to exercise, engage in crafts and hobbies and participate in familiar activities. Signature programs such as SingFit, TimeSlips, and drum circles promote resident engagement throughout the disease progression. Activities are monitored to ensure that residents at every ability level have abundant opportunities to participate, and that all activities embody our program’s core values of dignity, imagination, sensory, and choice (DISC)

Multiple locations

Carlton’s signature Memory Care program is offered at several of our San Francisco Bay Area locations, including Davis, Elk Grove, Sacramento, San Leandro, Poet’s Corner, Downtown Pleasant Hill and San Jose.

Our Poet’s Corner site in Pleasant Hill is Carlton’s only senior living community dedicated exclusively to memory care, but in each of these locations, memory care residents enjoy richly appointed common areas, including cozy living rooms with fireplaces, private courtyards and landscaped outdoor areas.
