Elmcroft Memory Care is the comfortable, safe and nurturing home for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. Our Memory Care communities feature a specialized program called Heartland Village, designed to provide the secure environment and specialized support that makes an important difference to our residents. Our Best Friends® approach is part of that program, which guides us in providing care built around each individual’s life history, cultural heritage, current abilities and interests. In this way, we can provide care and guided activities that encourage wellness, engagement and as much independence as safely possible for each of our residents.
What is Memory Care?
Elmcroft Heartland Village Memory Care communities are designed to help residents who have memory issues stay safe, independent and as happy as possible. We not only provide the support our residents need like medication management, bathing and dressing, but we also provide specialty programs and care to improve our residents’ quality of life. Residents of Elmcroft Heartland Village Memory Care communities and their families appreciate the staff, programs and personalized approach that results in physical, mental and social well-being.
Specially Trained Caregivers with Heart
Our memory care communities are just that – communities of people who are cared for by compassionate and skilled professionals. We understand that your loved one is a unique person with a desire to live as independently as possible. Our staff provides the considerate care and guidance to help each resident safely manage medication, bathing, dressing and personal care and take as active a part in community life as possible.
You’ll be pleased to know that our low staff-to-resident ratio means your loved one will have plenty of help and care, whenever needed. And staff are trained in our signature Best Friends® program, which helps us get to know your loved one’s life history, cultural heritage, abilities and interests. It’s our special way of surrounding our Heartland Village Memory Care residents with love.
Security and Freedom for Adults with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Memory problems present many challenges, especially regarding safety and security. At Elmcroft Memory Care, residents enjoy as much freedom as safely possible. That’s because our communities feature fully secured and monitored interior and outdoor areas. Coupled with the personal attention of staff who gently guide our residents in structured programs and individual interaction, your loved one will thrive in a protected community.

Apartments and suites, which are laid out with privacy in mind to respect the dignity of our residents, can be decorated with family mementos and cherished keepsakes. Tasty meals are prepared by a professional culinary staff, and restaurant-style table service by our courteous waitstaff is an important part of pleasant mealtime experiences.
