For Residents With Alzheimer’s And Related Dementia. What exactly is memory care? Memory care is the term for a long-term care option for patients who have been diagnosed with such conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, or those who have problems with at least two areas of daily living (ADLs). At Orchard Manor facilities, our goal is to provide a safe, secure, homelike environment where residents maintain an optimal level of self-care for as long as possible. Residents are stimulated mentally, physically and socially to utilize their abilities. A memory care environment is designed for persons with a level of impairment making it unsafe for him or her to continue to stay at home, but who does not require the intensive care of a skilled nursing facility. Orchard Manor still offers a highly trained and skilled nursing and caregiver staff with a remarkable caregiver-to-resident ratio, making us equipped to personally and professionally offer the highest level of care.
