Memory Care – It’s All We Do


Exclusively Memory Care

Caring for those with memory issues is a very specialized service. At Aspen Woods we exclusively care for those with varying and progressive forms of dementia.

Our purpose is to meaningfully engage each resident at their level. We strive to create an incredibly fun, flexible, and purposeful environment for those who need memory care.

Aspen Woods Approach to Meaningful Engagements


An important aspect prior to your loved one’s move into Aspen Woods involves learning as much as we can about each resident. We want to fully understand their journey and the things that bring them joy in life.
It is our job and sincere desire to step into that world and provide the safety, engagement and compassionate care our residents require and deserve.

Individual Plans

The entire team at Aspen Woods is required to attend monthly in-person classes that focus solely on caring for those with forms of dementia. We design individual care plans that help each resident live to the best of their abilities.

Meaningful Engagements

Based on the level of understanding we have of our residents and their specific care plans, Aspen Woods is able to achieve meaningful engagement with each of our residents.

At Aspen Woods we only care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.   We utilize resident-centered care, a care strategy that emphasizes an adaptive service plan that meets the holistic needs of a resident and adapts care and services to the unique needs and preferences of each resident. Each person is treated as a unique individual.

This strategy: • Promotes positive well-being • Honors choice • Enhances dignity • Empowers the resident • Improves quality of life • Supports independence

Beautifully Designed

Aspen Woods’ surroundings are thoughtfully designed to be homelike and familiar. Apartments are situated in small neighborhoods to minimize confusion and agitation and maximize the sense of freedom and comfort.

At Aspen Woods, we believe nature plays an important role in the health and happiness of our residents.
