How Memory Care Works
One of the most valuable aspects of our Reflections Memory Care program is the relationship that residents develop with their caregivers. At our luxury Memory Care community, residents benefit from individualized care plans provided by a staff who are specially trained and certified in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our caregivers do everything from assisting Members in daily needs such as dressing and bathing to engaging them in mental stimulation activities geared toward slowing the progression of the disease.
Depending on the stage of dementia they are at, Memory Care residents can have a variety of dietary needs. Our program includes an on-site dietician who works with each Member to come up with a dining plan that’s right for them. This may include traditional, family-style dining for those with fewer dietary needs or a pureed food option for those with more trouble eating. For seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia, being supported by a team that truly understands their needs and knows how to provide the best care can be a life-changing experience.
WAVES received the Best of the Best Award from Argentum, the nation’s largest senior living association, celebrating its outstanding achievements in Alzheimer’s programming.

Living With Alzheimer’s and Dementia
A Blog Series
Understanding that your loved one may have a form of dementia can be a difficult and trying time. While there is no single test that can diagnose a person, it’s vital to identify and become aware of the symptoms attributed to dementia. There are various cases of dementia and on average, Alzheimer’s accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases, while Vascular dementia (which occurs after a stroke) is the second most common form.
