Even with memory loss, connected and meaningful living is possible. There is still a capacity to grow and to feel fulfilled. To discover new things and find new friendships. To experience joy.
Everyone knows someone whose life has been touched by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Our hope is to make their lives better by offering supportive, uplifting lifestyles and specialized programming that addresses their unique needs with respect, dignity and kindness.
Mosaic Memory Care at Cascade Living Group.
Mosaic is the art of creating patterns or pictures with small bits of colored glass, stone or other materials. Our Mosaic Memory Care Program is a tribute to the importance of memory — recognizing that each of us is made up of small, beautiful fragments of different life moments: events, experiences and accomplishments.
And, like a mosaic, memory is unique and precious. We celebrate this, and that’s why Mosaic Memory Care is carefully tailored to each of our resident’s needs.
