A Safe, Secure and Caring Environment for Individuals with Alzheimer’s and Other Forms of Dementia...
In the Memory Care neighborhood at Clarendale, the highly trained staff dedicates each day to a success-focused, highly individualized program of competent and compassionate care for each resident.
Families can look forward to peace of mind, knowing the proven Heartfelt CONNECTIONS – A Memory Care Program® (2022 Gold Level Award Winner) promotes dignity and a sense of pride and accomplishment. The approach results in improved self-worth, self-esteem and the best possible quality of life for residents.
Consider Heartfelt Care
Benefits your loved one with memory impairment can expect:
- A focus on the abilities that remain, rather than what is lost
- A celebration of everything residents do
- A schedule of life-affirming activities enriching each day
- Warm and caring professionals focused on highly-individualized care addressing high quality of life
- A secured memory care courtyard for outdoor opportunities, including bird watching and feeding, gardening, safe walks, seating and family visits
Predictable Lifetime Pricing Guarantee
As care needs increase, many memory care programs increase care rates charged to residents. Not Clarendale. Our Predictable Lifetime Pricing Guarantee locks in published costs at the time of move-in for the length of each resident’s care. It offers peace of mind to guard against escalating memory care costs.

Choose Family-Style Dining
When your loved one moves to memory care at Clarendale, they’ll feel right at home with intimate, family-style dining in our cozy dining room every day. The chef and culinary staff offer a delicious, healthy menu of fresh dishes to cater to every taste and nutritional need. Best of all, residents love the warm, open, eat-in kitchen designed for sharing meals and snacks with friends.
Clarendale memory care provides a specially designed, whole-person approach to Alzheimer’s care and dementia care. Residents live in a warm and friendly, family-like neighborhood with the safety of 24-hour onsite security and the compassionate care of highly trained personnel who implement proven memory care programs that encourage and celebrate remaining abilities. Engaging opportunities and activities keep residents active, social and far from boredom. It would be virtually impossible to duplicate this level of around-the-clock safety, sense of community, activity and socialization, plus specific expertise in Alzheimer’s care using an in-home care service.
While both assisted living and memory care provide assistance with the activities of daily living, such as help with bathing, dressing, grooming and medication management, memory care at Clarendale offers a specific type of compassionate care that is specially designed for those with memory impairment. It’s called Heartfelt Connections, and each member of our memory care team is trained in the program. Engaging opportunities and activities keep residents active, social and far from boredom. With a much smaller footprint and more intimate setting, residents have more hands-on cuing, reminders and care. In addition, memory care residents live in safe and secure “neighborhoods” to promote socialization, and each individual residence offers purposeful design touches, like memory boxes outside each door and custom closets that put each day’s outfit within easy reach without question or confusion.
