Memory Care as Unique as                          Each Resident's Personality

When it comes to memory care, one size does not fit all. We take a personal approach that is truly tailored to the individual. Using information about each resident’s past lifestyle, career, family, hobbies, and interests, we develop individualized activities that make them feel comfortable.

Here's what sets St. Anne's memory care apart from other continuing care centers:

  • Our staff is specially trained to understand, communicate, and interact with memory-impaired residents. Many staff members have become Certified Dementia Practitioners through training offered by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
  • Our Memory Care Director is a Certified Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care Trainer, one of only a few Wisconsin health care professionals with that status.
  • Monthly support group meetings are held at St. Anne's for family members and caregivers of memory impaired residents.
  • We publish a monthly newsletter, "Memories Matter!," which includes news and advice for family members and caregivers. 
  • Reminiscing kits are available for caregivers, which are helpful for starting conversations and sparking memories with residents.
  • We created a Cozy Cottage, a homelike living room area filled with soothing sounds where residents with dementia can relax in quiet comfort.
  • We enhance residents' comfort and quality of life, keep them engaged and fulfilled, and make them feel safe and appreciated.

Memories in the Making

St. Anne’s Salvatorian Campus is a participant in the Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making® program, which offers creative art expression for individuals with early to middle stages of Alzheimer’s disease.  Even after residents with dementia have lost the ability to use words, they are able to paint their thoughts, emotions, and memories in a manner that is expressive and beautiful.  Art becomes their voice.  Through this experience, residents with Alzheimer’s are often able to reach outside of their dementia and paint a picture that reconnects them with a past memory.
