What Is The Compass Memory Care?

When it comes to memory impairment, it can be difficult to manage alone. Typically, conditions like dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other forms of memory impairment can lead to the need for specialized care. This is when memory care communities come into play—residential communities specifically set up to combat the complications caused by memory impairment.

Here at Arcadia at Limerick Pointe, we customize care plans for each and every one of our residents, because we believe every person’s needs are unique. From the moment you walk in our front door, you can see how our community is thoughtfully designed to reduce the effects of cognitive decline on your loved ones.

The Compass Memory Care is our approach to memory care, focusing on evidence- and research-based programming backed by an understanding, consistent, and supportive team.

The Compass Memory Care

Memory care communities are residential communities designed to support the quality of life for seniors with memory impairment. Residents are surrounded by a team of caring individuals specially trained to help with the complications often caused by memory impairment. 

The Compass Memory Care takes it one step further. We create a plan, tailored for each and every one of our residents, from nutrition to fitness and outings to therapy options. We believe that every person is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to memory care.

Our Neighborhood

Our approach goes beyond mental and emotional support—even our physical environment is designed to help your loved ones. Our community is designed to help reduce the difficulties of Alzheimer’s and other memory-related conditions through the use of directional cues and color patterns.

We have color-coded areas of our community so residents can easily orient themselves, and we’ve worked directional guides into the architectural design itself so residents have a clear map to navigate their environment.

And best of all, the exterior of each unit is uniquely designed. Through different patterns, colors, and structures on the porch to different styles of lanterns and lights, we’ve taken the steps to make it easier for our residents to identify their homes.

The Value of Choice

At Arcadia at Limerick Pointe, we believe that residents should have a choice every day. Whether residents need help deciding on an outfit, want to change their schedule for the day, or don’t want to go to an event, we respect the choices they make and are here to support them. 

We believe that by offering our residents the power to make their own choices, we can empower them to feel supported, respected, and cared for.

Every Day Is an Opportunity

One thing we believe in is that every day is an opportunity. If one of our residents decides they want to change things up or pursue something new, we are here to support them. We use an approach we like to call “structured fluidity” where we build a plan to benefit each resident’s wellness through a holistic approach.

We use this to address many aspects of their day—from meals to exercise to their personal interests. By making every day unique, we can honor every person’s individuality.

New Directions

We’re now offering our exclusive and highly acclaimed program, New Directions, to give seniors with memory impairment a new perspective on conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia. New Directions uses research and evidence-based programming to give each resident the support they need to live a happy, fulfilling life.
