Our Retirement Community is Nationally Recognized for Our Approach to Senior Memory Care
At Aston Gardens, we understand the challenges people with dementia face. We pride ourselves as a community that prioritizes using a person-centered approach that is well-known among the nation.
Our SHINE® Memory Care program curriculum has earned a National Certificate of Recognition from the Alzheimer’s Association®, the country’s leading, voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care and research. The distinction is one that we share with a small and elite group of U.S. memory care providers.
With an approach tailored specially for each individual, our program is centered around scientific principles. This includes encouraging quality-of-life, participation, and engagement for individuals suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions affecting memory.
Here at Aston Gardens, we have formed a team of highly skilled professionals to aid our residents to focus on various aspects of life. Our nurses are specially trained in memory care diseases and are equipped with the knowledge on how to serve our residents better. As part of our SHINE® Memory Care program, our mission is to help patients recondition what their illness has taken away from them.
We provide a range of services and there is nothing that you cannot find at Aston Gardens. We ensure that our residents are well-taken care of receiving high-quality medical care.
