Memory Care

in Omaha, Nebraska

Memory care offers a comforting, secure setting that’s designed to support those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and cognitive change.

Cognitive changes impact each person differently. That’s why we value each memory care resident as a unique individual, with personal preferences and needs. Each valued member of our memory care community gets what they need to feel supported and cared for, in a familiar, home-like setting.

Memory care at Fountain View Senior Living offers programming and supportive care, designed to uplift and stimulate our residents to access their best quality of life. Our caring, compassionate staff provide support and assistance with activities of daily living, including dressing, bathing, eating, and medication management. We also offer many customized, cognitively stimulating activities, such as games, music, and crafts.

Portraits® Memory Care Program

Our memory care program, Portraits®, fosters a sense of purpose, by providing distinct roles and daily routines for each resident within their community. Following Montessori principles, these activities serve to maximize residents’ abilities, by focusing on what they can do, rather than what they can’t.

We strive to make these activities as relevant to our residents’ lives and histories as possible. Portraits® is an ongoing way of life, aimed at retaining, exercising, and stimulating residents’ remaining abilities. Because we know memory loss affects everyone differently, our associates receive continuous training to apply Montessori methods to serve those with different types of dementia.

  • Less interest and attention paid to grooming and dressing
  • Trouble with activities of daily living (ADLs), including bathing, dressing, and using the bathroom
  • Memory loss that interrupts normal living, such as misplacing possessions, getting lost in familiar places, and changes in their ability to drive.
