Memory Care Neighborhood
RiverMead also has a memory care neighborhood that provides personalized care and assistance. It is led by our Special Care Coordinator and staffed 24 hours a day by specially trained staff members who support residents with memory loss.
RiverMead's unique approach reinforces each resident's capabilities while affirming dignity and self-esteem. The aviary, large fish tank, and secure outside garden area are just a few of the amenities that make this part of our community so special.
You have the peace of mind knowing that if nursing care is ever needed, it is available at no additional charge.
