Description
Our Memory Assist House (MAH) is made up of 20 spacious bedrooms, each with a ranchslider to the outside, and adjoining shared ensuites.

Guided by the principles of the Eden Alternative, MAH offers the latest interventions in clinical and dementia-specific care.

We’re empowering elders to retain their independence and do as much as possible for themselves. We respect their decision making while still ensuring their basic needs are met, and that they are happy and comfortable. This may carry more risk than a traditional institutional home model, so we take every step to ensure these risks are mitigated.

Our scheduled and unscheduled activities, round table discussions, and social tipples help to combat boredom and loneliness – and we encourage families to become part of this day to day rhythm.

As part of your loved one’s care team, you are welcome to join in activities, share meals and to be involved in medical decisions for your loved one.
