Companion Living at Prairie Hills

In today’s economy, many families are looking for options to make assisted living more affordable. Companion Living is a special program that brings together two residents to share a suite. This living option can help you realize your financial goals without compromising the quality of care that you or your loved one needs and deserves.​

Memory Care

We’ve spent a lot of time getting to know our residents and what makes them “sparkle.” The Garden’s Memory Care program offers stability, peace of mind and purpose to each day for each individual resident.

We pride ourselves on being leaders in the industry, which means regular training and updates for staff, as well as adapting to the preferences of the residents we serve. Each apartment entrance features a Memory Box that holds special meaning to the resident who lives there and provides valuable cueing opportunities for their visitors and our team members.

Additionally, days are filled with meaningful activities that call upon our residents’ younger years and emphasize purposeful activity. Our programming is led by our Memory Care Coordinator and morphs to meet the changing needs of our residents. Music Speaks is a staple activity in The Gardens, providing music therapy two times per week and allowing residents to come out of their diagnosis during and beyond the session.

If a loved one of yours is living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, please feel free to reach out to us for a tour of The Gardens, and an opportunity to view an activity while you’re here. It would be our pleasure to help your loved one “Embrace Every Moment!”
