Memory Care


Franciscan Villa’s Memory Care Program nurtures your loved one’s special needs due to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory impairment with a holistic and person-centered approach to care. Our personalized approach focuses on who each resident is and the value each person holds, offering a window into the life of each individual. 

Our focus is on the advanced care necessary to meet the challenges of those experiencing some form of memory loss. Each private suite is designed with the philosophy that this is home. We encourage families to personalize each suite with items that stir happy moments and special remembrances for their loved one.
