At Guardian Angels, we understand the challenges and uncertainty that can arise when a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another dementia-related condition. More than fifty years ago, we made a commitment to treat every resident with compassion, dignity, and respect, and we continue to live that commitment in our dedicated memory care suites.

Memory loss is different for everyone. We create an individualized, person-centered care plan that meets the unique needs of each resident and their families.

Our memory care suites, located within our assisted living communities, blend the intimacy of one-on-one attention and private suites with the socialization of a spacious community room and a campus with numerous amenities.

Dementia Support Group

Are you or someone you know affected by dementia? At Guardian Angels, we understand the challenges and difficulties that individuals with dementia and their families face. That’s why we have created a warm and welcoming dementia support group that provides a safe space for sharing experiences, finding support, and learning valuable coping strategies.

When you join our dementia support group, you become a part of our close-knit community where you are welcomed with open arms. In our support group sessions, you will have the opportunity to connect with others who are going through similar experiences. Sharing your thoughts, concerns, and triumphs with individuals who truly understand can be incredibly comforting and validating. You’ll find solace in knowing that you’re not alone in this journey.
