Alzheimer’s & Memory Care

Cognitive care and support for better quality of life

When individuals face the challenge of memory loss, so do their loved ones. At Shirkey Health Services, we understand the changes in behavior. As a certified Alzheimer’s and dementia provider, an advanced level of care is given to individuals with memory loss, while giving support to their families.

Our core focus is cognitive care for the best possible quality of life. In our secure and friendly environments, residents are supervised and supported 24 hours a day by our specialized and licensed nursing staff.

Shirkey Health Services provides two options of care:

When individuals enter into the latter stages of their prognosis, Shirkey Hospice & Palliative Care, provides an additional layer of comfort care and support for the resident and their families.

Stimulating Environment

We know remaining physically and socially active can ease the progress and effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia. We honor and support preferred routines and the interests of residents. Our personalized approach helps to fulfill as many activities and hobbies from their past into their lives today. Some examples include:

  • Sensory stimulation, such as hand massages, short walks and aromatherapy, to awaken the senses for better cognitive function
  • Activity stations, like gardening, sewing and knitting, to connect with longtime hobbies
  • Art therapy to improve attention and give pleasure
  • Music therapy to connect with long-loved songs
  • Coffee and chats, a modern take on reminiscing, for social engagement.

Along with personalize therapies, at least three daily group activities are also offered.
