Tapestry Memory Care
TAILORED FOR YOUR NEEDS
Nowhere is Tapestry’s Person-Centered Care philosophy more evident than in our memory care program. We respect that each resident is an individual with a rich life and a distinct personality. We don’t try to fit the resident into our program, and we tailor the program to fit the individual.
It is important that our Tapestry trained caregivers get to know each resident; their habits, their likes and dislikes… the things that make them a unique person. This ongoing process is critical to being effective partners and guides along each resident’s path. We are here to learn and listen.
Together with the resident, family, physician, and staff; we will work with you to customize a personalized care plan. Personal care, nursing, meals and life enrichment are all tailored to fit each resident’s unique wants and needs. It’s all about respect for the individual. That’s what makes Tapestry approach a success.

Frequently Asked Questions
Tapestry Memory Care training goes beyond the normal community standards and includes role playing, creative problem solution, conflict management, and empathy.
It’s all about the people. We have assembled a wonderful team of caring people, committed to the concept of Person Centered Care.
Person Centered Care simply means putting the resident at the center of the decision making process. Some people think that concept doesn’t apply in memory care, but the opposite is actually true. Person Centered Care is more critical in this program. A person dealing with memory care may feel like they are losing control of their life. As much as we can safely do, we put them back in charge of their lives. It’s simply about respect and dignity.

We offer a variety of targeted one-to-one and small group activities to ensure that residents remain active and engaged. The disease does not define the person at Tapestry. Our philosophy is that a lady who enjoyed gardening or cooking all of her life still needs to do those things. We may be there for a little help and guidance, but she continues to enjoy those things.
We plan life enrichment activities in response to the needs and wants of the resident population rather than some artificial business schedule.
Music and Memory is our nationally accredited music therapy program. The benefits of music therapy for folks living with a memory related diagnosis are well documented. For more information on this program go to www.musicandmemory.org

Absolutely, we want family members to be active and involved in the resident’s life.
