Memory Care Neighborhood
In the Memory Care Neighborhood at Clarendale of Mokena, we understand that with a memory-impairing illness, what remains is far more important than what is lost. This is why we embrace and celebrate everything our residents do through our Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program® an approach that offers people with Alzheimer’s disease and other related memory-impairing dementias the care, respect, dignity, and quality of life loved ones want for them.
Our highly trained staff dedicates each day to life-affirming activities, enriching the lives of residents. The goal is to promote physical and emotional well being, prolong daily functioning, and maintain a sense of purpose, dignity, and quality of life.
