Living with memory loss is difficult. Not only for the person experiencing it, but for their loved ones who care about them as well. At The Willows at Willard, we’re committed to providing care, support, and understanding to every family we serve, so that moments that have become challenging can transform into moments of joy. Seniors who live in our Memory Care neighborhood receive the highest quality care from trained caregivers who take the time to learn their stories, their struggles, and their strengths, in a neighborhood designed to provide both comfort and dignity.
In our Memory Care community, we believe that our residents deserve caregivers who not only provide clinical care, but the emotional connection and support of a Best Friend. The BFF Program, inspired by the Best Friends™ Approach, is how we put that belief into action.
Compassion, empathy, and patience are all necessities when it comes for caring for those with memory loss, but perhaps just as important is clinical expertise. At The Willows at Willard, we offer programming endorsed by national Alzheimer’s Advocacy groups. Our Daily Rhythms program sets a schedule for our residents, so that even though their energy levels may change throughout the day, our dedication to meeting their every need is something they can rely on.
Family Forum offers support groups for you to ask for advice, share experiences, and find strength from others whose loved ones are also living with memory loss.
Caregiver’s Day Off gives you the chance to enjoy pampering services, a complimentary lunch, and an informative speaker at our campus quarterly.
LifeShare helps you and your loved one stay connected, no matter where you are. Included on every television, this program allows you to share photos, messages, posts, and more.
For those on a memory loss journey, the importance of simple, joyful moments cannot be overstated. Like hearing a song that you danced to with your sweetheart, baking an old family recipe, or even taking a spin in a ’57 Chevy that looks just like the one that was parked in your driveway for all those years. These moments have the power to turn confusion into joy, and fear into love. That’s why, at The Willows at Willard, we’re so passionate about creating these moments for the seniors we serve, every day.
