Specialized support
    enhances independence

    The memory support program at Virginia G. Piper Residences addresses the needs of those with some memory loss and the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Like the services provided at Vermilion Cliffs, our care center for those with moderate to advanced dementia, residents receive individualized person-directed care and support, which is research-based and utilizes the best practices in the field of dementia care.

    Activity programs in our uniquely social and homelike setting are designed to stimulate cognitive function, while addressing individual needs. Focus is placed on honoring each person’s abilities and enhancing independence with just the right amount of support.
