Memory Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia in Naperville, Illinois
A Caring Approach to Memory Support
Memory support at The Springs offers purposeful living in a safe and caring environment. Residents in our memory care neighborhood experience the support and comfort of small-group households, each with their own kitchen, dining area, living space and secure courtyard with garden. This model promotes deeper connections between team members and residents, and allows both to develop individualized routines.
“We focus on living in the moment, experiencing the simple joy of a walk, listening to great music or laughing with friends.”
Each resident in the memory care neighborhood enjoys:
- Private suites with an en suite bath
- Personal furniture, belongings and artwork in their suite
- Ongoing support for family members
- 24-hour support from licensed nursing professionals
- Medication management
- Access to a continuum of care
Following the guiding principles of Heartfelt Connections — A Memory Care Program®, specially designed activities help residents find purpose, dignity and joy in each day. By learning about each resident’s personal story and celebrating their remaining abilities, team members create a deeper connection to our residents to better serve them. This approach to memory care is driven by five key principles:
- We view aging as a natural process — life stories to be continued.
- We believe what remains is far more important than what’s lost.
- We focus on each resident’s unique remaining abilities.
- We embrace and celebrate everything our residents do.
- We create success stories, one small victory at a time.
We bring out the best in our residents with specialized dementia-friendly activities that target the seven dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, educational, vocational, spiritual, social and environmental. And purposeful timing helps limit challenges often experienced by people with dementia, like sundowning, agitation and wandering. And we also support our residents’ loved ones and family members with forums and social events to create a community of encouragement and assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is memory support different from other levels of care?
Memory loss affects more than just one person. At The Springs at Monarch Landing, we work with individuals, family members and caregivers, searching for the right balance of respect and care. Our thoughtful layout and design promotes consistency and comfort and provides complete security around the clock. With special programs designed for those with memory loss, memory support at The Springs enables pleasant and peaceful days.
What is the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia?
The National Institute on Aging defines dementia as a loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. While dementia is not a disease, it may accompany certain diseases or conditions, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is a progressive, degenerative brain disease that affects the sections of the brain that control thought, memory and language.
Is the staffing in memory support different?
Yes. Team members are specially trained in person-centered memory care. And these special caregivers carry with them a compassionate temperament and a passion for providing dignified, respectful memory care to individuals and their families.
Will memory support costs rise based on the amount of care needed?
Not at The Springs. We offer flat-rate pricing based on suite size — with complete access to amenities and services in our memory support neighborhoods.
