Compassionate Memory Care at Bridgepointe at Village Manor
Today, one in every nine seniors is living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Until there’s a cure for this progressive disease, more and more older loved ones will be in need of consistent professional care to help them live as independently as possible. With the need for quality Memory Care communities growing every year, continuing care communities such as Village Manor are stepping up to support the cognitive, physical and emotional needs of seniors with memory challenges through providing outstanding dementia care programs.
For those living with memory loss, including those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Bridgepointe at Village Manor is here to create their best possible days. Our approach to Memory Care emphasizes residents’ strengths and capabilities rather than what has been lost.
While our dedicated staff utilizes comprehensive knowledge gained through professional dementia care training, our care incorporates so much more than merely addressing the physical difficulties brought about through memory loss. Our residents experience a lifestyle that’s at once supportive and engaging, taking part in meaningful activities that promote cognitive functioning and independence as well as offer moments of joy and comfort. We don’t define our residents by their limitations. Instead, we care for them as part of our family, treating them with respect, compassion and encouragement.

The Best Friends™ Approach at Bridgepointe at Village Manor
The Best Friends™ Approach to care is especially beneficial to our Memory Care program, as our caregivers learn each resident’s interests, likes, challenges and, most importantly, his or her life story. We can provide a standard of quality care that not only meets each individual's needs, but also builds trust, develops strong friendships and enhances lives. When our residents can no longer tell their own stories, we become their voice, offering them care and companionship even as memory loss progresses through its latest stages.
