Memory Care

Tockwotton on the Waterfront Memory & Alzheimer's Care

This is Memory Care reimagined. This is The Courtyard Memory Care at Tockwotton on the Waterfront. As an assisted living residence specializing in care for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss, The Courtyard provides a safe and nurturing environment where highly trained caregivers focus on what is meaningful to each resident. Priority one is getting to know the resident and their family. Understanding your loved one—appreciating their likes and dislikes and knowing how best to maintain their well-being and peace of mind—allows us to create experiences that will foster positive emotions throughout their day.

Memory & Alzheimer's CareThe cognitive changes brought on by memory loss can cause a great deal of anxiety or stress. Something quite familiar can suddenly feel unfamiliar. That is why our surroundings have been designed to feel just like home. Residents reside in private studio apartments. We encourage families to fill the space with the resident’s favorite possessions or pictures. Built in a circular fashion, The Courtyard minimizes opportunities for confusion and agitation, while enhancing a sense of stability and calm. Central to life here is our beautifully landscaped and enclosed courtyard with an herb and cutting garden. Most of the apartments feature either courtyard or waterfront views.

The safety and contentment of each resident is a full time commitment at The Courtyard.  The team approach of our highly trained staff ensures 24-hour care is consistent and compassionate. To that end, our commitment to care does not stop with the resident. We hold a special place in our hearts for family members struggling to understand the intricacies of Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments.

Together we care.

The Rhythm of Our Day

memory careThe rhythm of our day starts with breakfast on a resident’s own timetable. The day then becomes busy as we roll out The Journey Club®—a choice of activities, trips, entertainment and pleasurable family visits. Music often fills the air after lunch. Whether we sing or listen to a concert, music is a fun, easy-going activity that stirs the soul. As the afternoon winds down, a delicious dinner is served, complete with fresh flowers and soft music. Evening may feature a specially designed game and then a movie that brings back fond memories. Throughout the day you will find ALL members of our highly trained staff involved in every aspect of care for your loved one, just as you would find in a family setting.
