Dementia and memory loss can be extremely challenging for you and your family. Considering professional memory care can be just as difficult, but our team is dedicated to helping you navigate the transition and ensure you feel confident placing your loved one in our care. Our memory care communities are designed to provide a calm, compassionate, and caring environment where your loved one feels supported no matter their cognitive ability. Your loved one can have their needs met with 24-hour, dedicated professional care and relieve the responsibility of care from you and your family.
Every memory care resident comes from a different level of cognitive ability. You may know that it’s the right time for your loved one to transition to professional care, or you may still be unsure. Ultimately, we recommend meeting with our team to see how we can best meet the needs of your loved one and provide relief for your family. Professional memory care offers many benefits, including being fully equipped with focused medical staff, security, and round-the-clock care. If you’re finding it difficult to provide the full extent of care that your loved one needs, then professional memory care is often the best investment you can make in their overall health and well-being.

At Care Cardinal, we believe that people living with dementia deserve to live in a world that supports their emotional and physical needs, especially as those needs continue to evolve and change. Our residents living with dementia need different resources and hands-on care than our residents without cognitive impairments — we’re here to meet those needs. That’s where the Wren Program comes in.
The wren is noted in folklore as “the king of birds.” We want to distinguish between our residents living with dementia and those without cognitive impairments – without focusing on the impairment itself. Instead, how can we adjust our caregiving to bring out the best in ourselves and our residents? How can we make our program suitable for people living with dementia?
Here’s how: Care Cardinal’s dementia program is relationship-based and resident-first. The Wren Program comprises the “Three C’s” of fundamental aspects around activities, dining, and physical and emotional design.
We think daily activities are far more than just “keeping people busy” — we believe it’s about meeting people where they are and helping them maintain what makes them unique.
Dining should be just that: dining. It should be an experience that our residents look forward to each day. We provide home-cooked, nutritious meals designed to inspire comfort and cheerfulness.
A calm, welcoming environment isn’t just about physical space. Many people with dementia occupy a different emotional space, so we’ve created a calming environment accordingly.
