Memory Care

at Sydney Creek

To help our residents lead their best, most active lives possible, our full-time Life Enrichment leaders offer a program designed exclusively for those with memory loss. Our team takes a broad approach to care for dementia, offering a broad and customized array of activities. These leading-edge programs have been shown to slow the progression of the disease and help reduce troubling conditions such as insomnia, agitation, and depression.
