Memory Care Neighborhood

(Waits River Way & Lemon Fair Lane)

Helen Porter offers a memory care program designed to meet the changing needs of individuals as they experience the progression of symptoms and increases in cognitive loss associated with a diagnosis of dementia. Our early stage program offers activity-based care in a warm, supportive and safe environment with a primary goal of helping individuals maintain dignity, purpose and functional ability.

Our Namaste Care program, developed by dementia care expert, Joyce Simard, M.S.W., is designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those in the advanced stages of dementia through loving touch, meaningful activities and the presence of others.

We focus on possibilities, not limitations; on the person, not the disease; and we have the experience and environment to address the needs of each individual who calls Helen Porter home.

Our resident receives a soothing hand massage with lotion from one of our Namaste Carers.
