The Garden on Browning Lane – Memory Care  Assisted Living

Life enrichment in memory care at Sentry Hill is a free-flowing process of engagement.  With flexibility and understanding of moderate to advance memory loss, attention spans may challenge individual participation in group engagement. For those that enjoy one to one activity or those that enjoy smaller group options, we have something for everyone.  Bringing the residents together allows them to self-initiate and or take cues from their peers for participation. Residents can make a connection and establish relationships with the fluidity of our programming.  Routines help with promoting individual independence with a safe environment that is secure and supportive for each resident’s journey.
