The Springs Resident
We follow the guiding principles of Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program®, which offers specially designed activities that help residents find purpose, dignity and joy in each day. Our nurses and caregivers create a deeper connection by learning about each resident’s personal story and celebrating their individual abilities.
Our approach to memory care is driven by five key principles:
- We view aging as a natural process.
- We believe what remains is far more important than what’s lost.

- We embrace and celebrate everything our residents do.
- We create success stories, one small victory at a time.

When is the right time to move from assisted living to memory care?
It’s time to move to memory care when your loved one’s safety is at risk. For example, they may experience repeated falls or begin wandering or easily become lost while walking or driving. It also may be time to reevaluate your loved one’s living situation if they neglect their hygiene or become combative or aggressive.
Beyond safety, you should consider your loved one’s quality of life as well as yours. Are they lonely and isolated? Would having expert caregiving and special activities be enjoyable and stimulating for them? Are you concerned for your safety? Is managing their care taking a toll on your life? If you answered yes to any of these, please reach out to us for an assessment of your loved one to see if our memory care would be right for them.
What is it like to have dementia?
Every person’s experience is different, but common symptoms and challenges include:
Memory Loss – Forgetting something once in a while is normal, but issues such as continuing to miss appointments, losing one’s way home from the grocery store, or forgetting to use the restroom are cause for concern.
Changes in Mood or Personality – Someone with dementia will often have wildly varying moods, from excitement to anguish, within a short time frame.
Impaired Judgment – Though your loved one might have been diagnosed with dementia, they most likely won’t believe it. Even a neurologist with dementia symptoms was “certain that there was nothing wrong with my brain.” This can make treatment difficult, but experts can help.
Confusion – The most widely known symptom of dementia is getting lost, but that confusion can also affect tasks like reading comprehension, speech, and language as well as make it difficult to plan and organize.
