Memory Care Community

in Bennington, NE

If you’re seeking a safe, secure, welcoming environment for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia to call home, look no further than Ridgewood Senior Living for your memory care needs.

Our memory care community offers private suites and comfortable common areas, designed to support and stimulate our residents’ cognitive abilities. Daily routines of bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and managing medication are customized to each resident’s needs, along with social and mentally stimulating activities like games, music, and crafts.

Memory loss affects everyone differently—that’s why we take care to view each resident as the unique individual they are and support their personal care needs and preferences. Because no matter where we are in life, our need for purpose and meaning in life remains.

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.
