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.

When is it time for memory care?

The short answer is, “It’s personal.” The time to make the transition into memory care living depends on individual circumstances. But there are some common signs that could signal it’s time to consider memory care for your loved one, and for you.

Is your loved one:

  • Wandering outside or becoming lost?
  • Displaying challenging behaviors like anger or paranoia?
  • Having increased care needs that would better be provided by a professional?
  • Causing you concern for their safety and the safety of others?
  • Having difficulty with daily tasks like eating or personal hygiene?

Caregiver burnout can also indicate it’s time for memory care. Some signs include:

  • Injuries from lifting or moving a loved one.
  • Declining physical or emotional health.
  • Feelings of isolation from other family members or friends. 
  • Exhaustion or depression.
  • Gaining or losing weight.
