Just because your loved one has dementia doesn’t mean the conversation is over. Behind the eyes of each resident living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, there lies a lifetime of experiences that make up their unique life story.
At ECH, we believe each resident deserves to live with dignity and respect, and that we have an obligation to engage them in a meaningful way and provide them with the best quality of life possible.
Our two memory care neighborhoods are designed to feel like home. Around those neighborhoods, you will find friendly pets, family-style kitchens, neighbors dining together, secure outdoor areas and comfortable living rooms and sun porches.
As memory care needs increase, our Marmion neighborhood just down the hall provides 24-hour skilled nursing care. Not all memory care centers have that capability. Personal Care residents in each neighborhood have a private bedroom with private bath.
All residents enjoy common living rooms, family-style kitchens and dining rooms. The familiarity and homelike atmosphere of this design concept contribute to resident’s feelings of acceptance, well-being and purpose. Staff members trained specifically to work with the needs of memory-impaired residents follow a program of care based on their individual needs and abilities.

We understand caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia can be difficult and overwhelming. That’s why we’ve created a guidebook to help you understand the disease and the resources that might be available to you.
