Memory Care

Touchmark’s philosophy of care is grounded in fostering whole-person wellness for all—residents, team members, and loved ones. We call our approach {FULL} Life Care for two reasons: it represents the high-quality care residents receive as well as reinforces how we truly care about those we serve.

With needs that are ever-evolving and changing, Touchmark’s Care Program approach ensures team members and residents are always supported by their peers, building upon our knowledge, and growing better together.

Within our memory care program, our specially trained care partners work to discover each resident’s likes, dislikes, and daily routine preferences. The Full Life Care Program™ focuses on each resident’s strengths and pursues creative opportunities for engagement to give them the highest quality of life possible while living at Touchmark.”

Environment Features

The physical appearance of Touchmark’s health services neighborhoods are important pieces of providing Gold Standard-quality care. Touchmark reinvests in its communities through cyclical renovations of our communities, including the memory care neighborhoods.

Not only is it crucial to provide aesthetically pleasing environments for residents for their mental well-being, but these renovation projects also allow Touchmark to continuously improve and increase functionality based on the most current research and data. We use what we’ve learned over our 40+ year history to enhance our health services and stay ahead of industry standards.

Key examples of neighborhood enhancements include:

  • Artwork based on proven psychology for stimulation, memory recall, and wayfinding
  • Activity stations to allow residents to perform tasks that they completed daily throughout their lives
  • Ergonomic furniture for aging persons, down to the seat depth, height, and movement
  • LED lighting for a softer, more soothing lighting aesthetic as well as sustainability
  • Neutral, nature-like flooring and wall colors on the walls and floors to promote a serene environment
