Nursing Director/staff trainer Certified by Teepa Snow.

Designed To Feel Like A Familiar Neighborhood

Silvergate Memory Care Suites – located in a dedicated building on the retirement community’s beautiful 11-acre campus – created an easy-to-navigate “Neighborhood” floorplan with an intimate feel for its residents living with dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease or memory loss. The design provides for a more personalized, home-like approach to resident care. Divided into four uniquely themed “Neighborhoods,” each ideally sized community floorplan space features 12 resident suites gathered around a central, shared living room, kitchen, and dining room space. ….

This distinct design provides the greatest degree of resident comfort, engagement, and supervision while keeping residents safe and secure every day. No corridors or hallways to wander means residents are less likely to feel anxious or confused – which gives seniors living with memory loss a comfortable, familiar environment in which to live.

High Caregiver-to-Resident Ratio Ensures Better Care

By offering one of the highest caregiver-to-resident ratios in the industry, our team of experienced professionals can meet the needs of families who are looking for round-the-clock, high-touch care seven days a week. By having more eyes on fewer residents, families can rest assured that their loved one’s care and safety are in excellent hands each and every day.

“A Positive Approach” Focuses On What’s Left…Not What’s Lost

For residents who are experiencing memory loss, Silvergate uses the well-known “A Positive Approach To Care” TM model first introduced by trusted industry expert, Teepa Snow. This care method concentrates on positive interactions and finding joy in the moment. Our certified nurses and trained staff deliver best-in-class care with respect, sensitivity and dignity through the use of this proven, successful care model. A positive approach means we can focus on what’s left…not what’s lost.
