Memory Care Community (MCC)

Memory Care (The Garden)

The Garden is our memory care community and supports individuals with memory loss, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other dementias. Residents are encouraged to participate in daily activities according to their individual abilities. Our employees receive specialized training on how to provide personal support services that are designed to promote self esteem, in a non-threatening environment.

Our Philosophy

It is the Philosophy of Harvest Homes to provide each of our residents with a supportive, homelike environment. We dedicate ourselves to serving residents who have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia with compassion and respect in a comfortable and safe environment. We strive to create a structured, yet quiet, low stimulus environment, where each person can function at his/her highest capacity, within each individual’s limitation.

Families can find comfort in knowing that their loved one is living in a secure environment. Through positive reinforcement while assisting our residents in completing the basic functions of everyday living, we are able to enhance each residents esteem and quality of life.
